How Bad can I be? by Jeh-Leh-Loh How Bad can I be? by Jeh-Leh-Loh
Um, so I drew this from memory and I'm not really thrilled with the way it turned out. Oh well :/

For those of you who have seen The Lorax hopefully you recognize Once's sassy green suit. He was definitely my favorite character! SO CUTE!!! XD I wanted to give him a hug pretty much throughout the whole movie. Just saying. :D

Head-bopping number, reminiscent of ACDC's "Back in Black", but I hated the Once-ler a little at the end because of capitalism taking over, yes, but... that thing with the "Lorax approved" sign? :angered: He did not just go there!!!! :fork: That's what I think your stinkin' Thneeds you promise-breaking mama's boy!

Its a fun tune, it kinda reminds me of a lot of rock/pop songs actually...

Yes i can see how this wold be a little, ahem, irritating. I was really frustrated with him too by the end, but at the same time I pitied him. Yes it was a stupid thing for him to walk into but I feel like there was a lot of pressure from his family and if you combine that with his tragic flaw which I've written down as ambition, I get it. It was wrong, but I totally see myself getting stuck in the same kind of situation. In the end he really got screwed over.

But yeah that did kind of piss me off too, I really wanted to smack him upside the head and knock some sense into him :slap:

:nod: Only then did I realize that Th'need is "the need" with one letter taken out (:roll: And I had been reading The Lorax for years, content to believe it was just a made-up word.) That is the Once-ler's fatal flaw, i.e. wanting to please consumers by meeting their needs, which unfortunately means forgetting promises made back when he wasn't under that pressure.

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO CAUGHT THAT LAST MINUTE!?!?! YAY!! I kinda felt like there was some symbolism going on there but not really sure what it specifically meant.

Lol, yes, I realize his hair is black, I'm still trying to figure out black hair highlights without making him look like he has grey hair. ^^;

Yes that is a truffula flower between his teeth, mimicking the tango dancing rose thingy.

Thank you btw XD

Really, really nicely done. This is a fantastic drawing and I deeply enjoy your particular drawing style of it, from the great light sourcing and shading to the Seussian quirk on his hat. The things that you missed were minimal, and I don't blame you at the least; as far as I can tell, no pictures of it has been released yet or allowed on the internet; so I'm not looking for accuracy. Just as a future side note, though; the collar in the movie is designed like a normal dress coat with long coattails and exaggerated lapels that go over his shoulders, along with a thick green striped tie and a white undershirt without a top button an open widely. As far as the drawing, I was completely blown away by your proportions and the similarity of it to the film. It seems to have an anime-esque addition as well. One thing that throws me off slightly is the midsection, which seems to come up way too fast and not leave him any place for a stomach or chest. But that might just be a really odd angle.
I also really liked the rendition of the Once-ler in this version, and I like his flashback parts better than the new additions.

Thank you!! Wow I am so flattered that you actually gave me the time of day to give me pointers!! Thank you!!! :heart:

Yeah,. the out fit I finally found some better images of, so hopefully in the future I can get it right, and the mid section thing was not really my strong point. I'm still learning but if you have any pointers as to how I can fix that in the future, please, I'm all ears :)

Again thank you for your honest input! ;)

Yes! The green suit with sunglasses! (You'd be surprised how often people forget them, and they're what really sell the outfit, y'know?)

Sunglasses can be kinda tricky, but yes they are an essential part of the suit. It kinda helps give it that rock star feel to it.

Thank you!
