don't let G O by Wickfield don't let G O by Wickfield
Mandark can't skate.
And Dee Dee doesn't care. :P


I was really inspired by ~iMandark 's snowy pics and so I wanted to try one myself! I referenced the snow and Dee Dee's clothes from the episodes "Sister Got a Brand New Bag" and "Snowdown" .... Mandark's outfit I designed meself. :nod: I also tried some new things in this - I did the lineart in Inkscape and switched to GIMP for coloring, and I used the fill bucket and subtractive cell shading for the first time, which made the process shorter, although this still took a while. XD

I meant to draw a snowman but I forgot and then was too lazy.

Would you care if I drew one of my OCs in that outfit that Dee Dee is wearing? I will give you full credit

Aw, really? :hug: I have good memories of this one, I drew it on Thanksgiving day a few years ago and I'm still proud of how much I was able to fit in it. :aww:

Mandark better be careful or he'll fall down!!!

P.S: Reminds me of "Dexter's Rivel" where DeeDee and Mandark did the funny tango dance!

Great piece - love the motion blur on the arm adds to the sense of mechanical disaster as Dee-Dee goes too far to fast. Skating on thin ice is a great metaphor for human relationships

Thanks for noticing! My sister helped me figure out how to achieve that motion blur effect and I do think it adds to the pic. And I like your "skating on thin ice" analogy - I'm going to pretend I came up with that myself. :laughing:

I'll be honest with you - I don't see the pairing working because I've always imagined that Dee Dee would grow up to become a cheerleader type. But this one is so adorable and well done that I'll set aside my scepticism for a while.

Haha, yeah, I'll admit they don't have much in common! But they're really fun to draw and ship since they're such a contrast to each other. :heart:

Thanks for the comment!

You know, this is so beautiful :iconomgsocuteplz::iconilavplz:. Dee Dee can show Mandark to skate =D .You should write a poem because you're a great author (I read the story "genius of love" ) and it rhymed what you write (skate and care), it would be so cute :aww:. Also I see that you used both Inkscape and GIMP , you did a great job :clap:.

Thank you!! I think Dee Dee's *trying* but I'm not so sure whether she'll help him or harm him... :XD:

And I'm glad you like Genius of Love! I really will have to attempt another DL fic soon.
