Azu Equals Californian by azuzephre Azu Equals Californian by azuzephre
Damn the Californian sun. I'm going to miss winter, but at least I have an excuse to buy new clothes and wear sunglasses again.

Open Canvas -- Three Hours.

I hate the California sun. But it is nice everyonce in a while.

New clothes and sunglasses are always nice too.

Winter sucks XD

Hush you itty bitty face. :disbelief:
Just kidding.

Those are some pretty awesome I'm going to go and look for some that look JUST like them....

But aside from the awesome pants, it's an amazing picture! :dummy:

Awesome pose and design! The colors are somehow very chilly, but I like it that way. =3

So, I'm pretty much in love with those pants. Are they based on real pants that I could get somewhere, or are they just fun to draw?

mickyway Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2008
the california sun sucks. i've lived in cali all my life, and apparently, all this sun is turning my black hair brown. TT~TT screw the sun.
MadCheshire Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2007

I live in California as well and I've always loved the Californian sun~

Tis a blessing

Then again, I live in the San Fernando valley

Weather isnt too bad over there. Go to Palmdale, THEN go ahead and damn the californian sun XD AND the winter!

I like the kind of Asian approach to the way. Very well done.

I find it amusing that you think it's cold in Cali when it's winter there.
*I'm from Canada*

But I'm not really in the mood for one of those talks where we explore all the differences in the weather between our regions...

Have a nice day in hot Cali-forn-I-A!

paintedmaru Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2007
i want your pants..........*steals and flees*

dude, in california it's summer year round. you can wear sunglasses nearly everyday. even if it's overcast, it's glare-y out.
Nohra Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2007
don't draw yourself a lot..not healthy
Sonaorein Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2007  Student
Oh yes, Californians are indeed the best. :heart:
And there's that shirt again! Which is still prolly the coolest I've ever seen. :)
I like the white you left..the smaller wave background gives it a clean feeling.
And the wave! So darn cool. One of the better stylized ones I've seen. And I've seen a lot (our swim team logo is a wave, and they keep changing it!).
However, the wave does look a little...'solid' would be the right word? Maybe if you used a lighter, slightly brighter blue, it would minimize that? Or maybe you wanted it like that.
Really nice job! :orange:

Is that a Passion Fruit Iced Tea from Starbucks I see? :0

Ha. Probably not. I'm just hooked on those right now. :P nice pic!
beatrix-rose Featured By Owner May 12, 2007
I totally know what you mean as a (Coastal) Californian who will miss winter. Since you recently asked for some constructive critisizm (okay... that word's not very easy to remember) your left leg from my perspective looks a bit too skinny and your palm looks like it's inside of the cup a little bit. Other wise it's beautiful.
chibiinu11 Featured By Owner May 12, 2007
Same state at least.
Alinedra Featured By Owner May 12, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
yeah.... california has zero winter. Just a slight change in temperature >.<
SweetDeviance Featured By Owner May 11, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hehe, nice.
elchen Featured By Owner May 9, 2007
you said you want suggestions for how to improve:
I don't want that you change your style,
because that's why we love you .. well I guess.. :flirty:
But maybe you could once do another hairstyle
or a shirt without saying azu somewhere.
just curious what you would do instead.. :)
so I'm looking forward for new pictures!
ShotxXxGun Featured By Owner May 5, 2007
Haha, at least you don't live in 120 degree Mesa, Arizona! xp

NoAm-B Featured By Owner May 3, 2007
I totally agree with you, but I say "damn the Israeli sun" :] I'm going to miss winter too...oh well..but you're right, new clothes and sunglasses are good.
Yumikko Featured By Owner May 1, 2007
If you're so concerned about the sun come live in the Bay Area with Meeks o__x Or at least hangout in the sunset district of SF for the rest of your Californian life. (Extra bonus of living in the sunset district is living by the zoo XD)
Drazuki Featured By Owner May 1, 2007
Lovin' the nautilus shirt and how your color your pictures. Go Californians!

In Michigan, people wear sunglasses in the winter.
I guess that's just part of us suffering from SAD XD
LeonaOkami Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2007
Damn you and your crazy Californian-ness. TT3TT Ohio has so much humidity~ Besides five seasons in one day. 8D I miss Cali. It feels like I was just there yesterday.

I really enjoy your background work. I wish I could do line art as clean and well as you.. along with so many others.. ._.
