I was just fiddling around on the corner of a canvas between drawings, trying to make a more whimsical looking Cousin Call. It turned out to be real purdy,
so I added a background and Soulful Heart Fox (that’s the second time I’ve drawn him Calling. He always seems to be giving No Heart a face full of caring whenever
I see him xD)
Sorry it’s so tiny, initially it was just a practice doodle and I didn’t think it’d see the light of day. By the time I realized how nice it looked I was too
afraid to blow it up and make it into something more polished lest I mess it up. D:
Also apparently the image isn't the only thing that's tiny, I guess my text is just stuck like this today. It also likes to start scooting out the right side
of the description box if I don't keep an eye on it... what did you break this time, DA?
Bright Heart: “Gentle Heart Lamb, would you, uhm… do you think you might consider… what I’m trying to say is, Valentine, will you be my Gentle Heart? Uhm! No, wait, I mean…”
Gentle Heart: “Oh Bright Heart, of course I’ll be your Valentine.”
Ahhh… a little bit of film grain goes a long way. Feels like 1985 in here. That’s the good stuff. Actually, Bright and Gentle Heart look a bit older, so maybe it’s less like ’85 and more like ’95. I mean, if you ascribe to the timeline most fans do and think the events of the 2nd movie took place at around 1981-1983, assume the Great Wishing Star super-aged the cubs since more Care Bears were needed to defeat Dark Heart and go on missions, and that every Bear and Cousin aside from Grams, Hugs, Tugs, and The Founders in the 1986-1988 Nelvana series were magically hyper-aged teenagers, at some point around the early to mid 90s should be about the time you start seeing romantic couples and marriages, right?
…Hey, I don’t make fun of you when you over-analyze ponies or Transformers, do I? Come on, we’ve all got our guilty pleasures. And Odin knows there are things in this gallery that should be much deeper sources of guilt than my pondering the intricacies of Care Bear chronology.
Say, d’you think Care Bears look at their flowers the same way we look at ours? I mean, if Bright Heart lights some candles in his room and scatters a bunch of heart-shaped rainbow petunias on the covers, will it look romantic to Gentle Heart or will it just look like clown vomit? Maybe Gentle Heart’s not taken aback by Bright Heart’s unexpected display of affection here, maybe she’s just laughing at how ridiculous that bouquet looks.
Did I seriously just ask myself what Care Bears use as an aphrodisiac? That’s it, enough guilty pleasures for one day.
Now, back to drawing swastikas.
