Bein' Lazy by Altalamatox Bein' Lazy by Altalamatox
Eric Thedrial in monstrous form, being a blob and enjoying the best part of winter: not being out in it. Actually, Eric loves snowboarding and snowball fights and snow in general, but he loves warm cookies and hot chocolate more.

He's meant to be drowsy, but if he looks like he's pulling bedroom eyes instead then mwahaha. We're probably a big German chocolate cake he's got his eye on.

Changed computers in the middle of this thing. Oh god. My old laptop was pushing five years and it's AWESOME to be using a machine with more power to it. I've also updated from CS2 to CS6, which has some serious oddities I'm still getting used to. The crap thing, as always, is calibrating screens, and I'm fighting a blue shift in the new laptop and the usual over-saturation in my monitor... anyway. Lord knows what my art is going to look like on other monitors, probably prepare for some oddness for a while.

Well hello sexy thang~ x3
TOTALLY imagining myself as a German Chocolate cake now! He's absolutely irresistible 8D
I think if I were to meet him I'd be like "take me~"
And he'd probably glarp me down like spaghetti noodles hehe xD

TOTALLY worth it B-)

Waaaay hotter then his human form!
Animeria Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
I bet he is a very happy camper when it comes to food he has or cooks up for him and his little fluffers :3

Kira: Wow, that food looks very good to eat and I think if Eric would love to eat so much more food then he has more, his belly will get even more bigger which will mean more belly rubs and belly hug too.  I wish Eric could save me some foo if I wanna spent the winter with him ^w^

Hehehehe, can't not see bedroom eyes now. Very, "O hai... c'mere, I have cookies..."

Colors look fine to me. Is that ice cream in the foreground?
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
It is ice cream! And pie and a jar of sweets. They were drawing too much attention down to the corner there so I blurred the unholy hell out of them, though it might've been better to have taken them out.

Eric: B-but, I was gonna eat thooose! D:

Tox: Wish you'd gotten on that before I took the time to paint them.

Eric: But then I'd have less bargaining material for tempting ze passing ladieez, hurr hur--

Tox: *smacks* No one wants to date you, you're eight hundred pounds and older than most civilized nations and look like a house cat got busy with a bear AAAAND you snore.

Penny: Excuse you! D< He does NOT snore. *huggles the boyfriend*

Eric: :heart:

Sounds like what I'm doing at the moment, except with gingersnaps and Twinings tea instead of cocoa. Can't get me to go outside right now, no way.

...except I have to. The fridge is a bit bare today.
Illusioninme Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
wow, the color scheme is actually amazing, it makes his eyes stand out without making them look odd. Beautifully drawn and colored, I'd say you're doing just fine with the new computer.

He sounds so much like me. XD I love playing out in the snow, but I love being warm and drinking hot cocoa more.

Nicely done :)

I love CS5 and really not that fond of CS6. I don't know who thought white text on grey background was good, but I'd like to smack them. Hard. With a chair. Filled with a starving lion. And fire ants.

Sexy monster form.
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
One of the first things I did with CS6 was search for a way to change the background color, and there is such a setting, if you've not found it, under Preferences. I've actually changed mine back to the new black workspace on account of my shit eyes, which bleed and bleed staring into bright monitors all day.

My biggest beefs have been with tiny but irritating things, like toolbars that don't minimize automatically when you're done with them, new little boxes you have to manually check to get tools to work right... little useless timesucks messin' up mah precious workflow.

If Eric were real I'd compulsively take a nap every day curled up on his tummy. The damn soft and fluffy bastard.
Yunie-B Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student Filmographer
Yeah ... things weren't broken ... why fix them? =/

This computer, not my school one, has PS 7.5 on it and I use a lot of keyboard commands to make my workflow speed up, and those commands only partially work on CS. =( I still have to get my mouse out. I.e. if I wanted to make up a bunch of layers that I know I'm going to use, I could cmd+shift+n, then tab through it to set opacity. Can't set the opacity without clicking it now. Waste of time.

That happy, relaxes face :D

To me he just looks like he's chilling and watching TV or something. c: Not that I don't want to be in a big German chocolate cake! Also I'm kinda surprised that many cookies are still on the plate, haha. Love the lighting on his fur and in his ears!

Oh man, transitioning to different computer screens is weird. I hate how crazily different colors will look. Years ago I worked on a desktop monitor and then moved to a laptop, and only then did I realize how horrifyingly yellow everything had been on the desktop. It had made my skin tones look kinda crappy. Or maybe I was just a coloring noob back then.

He looks like a super satisfied lion to me.
Fafenheir Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Why can't it be all three? Nothing beats drowsy food addicts with bedroom eyes.
aAshleyB Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
looks good on my monitor; that's my kind of fella!
Redfeathyrs Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Student General Artist
His fur looks amazing, and I love his eyes. :squee:

Has he tried the fudge covered oreos? He should. :giggle: Although chocolate chip are a great classic.
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
At some point Eric has almost certainly made himself a double-stuffed-chocolate-filled-fudge-covered-Oreo-studded chocolate ice cream with Hershey's kisses and syrup, and subsequently died of dehydration and happiness.

Eric: Worth it. :D
Redfeathyrs Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student General Artist
:rofl: Wow. Sounds...uh...yummy? :giggle: At least he died happy. :thumbsup:
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013
Yummy, right. XD Not a huge chocolate fan myself. Anything chocolate coated in chocolate is just one magnitude of chocolate too much. You?

Yep, there are far worse ways to go!
Redfeathyrs Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Student General Artist depends on what it is. I just tried oreos coated in fudge. Good, but almost too much for me. Things like double-chocolate cookies or brownies or whatever aren't my favorite, but I once had a death-by-chocolate was chocolate ice cream with chunks of fudge in it and hot fudge drizzled on top. That was fantastic, since all of the chocolate tasted a little different. :love:

:XD: Most definitely.

GingerOpal Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
I have to get a new computer this year, and I'm sort of dreading it for the same reasons! :giggle:

...I want some of those cookies.
