NostalgiArt: Cold McDowell by MTC-Studios NostalgiArt: Cold McDowell by MTC-Studios
So I had this thought not too long ago, to revisit long lost characters of mine and draw them as I would now. This is also sort of a test for you guys to see if you've watched my gallery long enough to know who it is.

So I decided to have a go at drawing old Cold McDowell, the first in the line of McDowell characters of mine xD

Oh man, some good times with this guy, The character itself sucked in hindsight, but this is back when I didn't know better. And hoooo boy, this was back when one of my main artistic influences was CLAMP, which explains those ridiculously long skinny legs he has here xD.

Cold has a lot of sentimental value with me though as without him I probably wouldn't have worked up to the nerve to talk to ~RinLockhart whom I greatly admired for the longest time (and still do) and am now dating. So I kinda owe it to this old sucky character that I'm where I'm at in life now.

Isn't nostalgia a good thing? ^ u ^

Nostalgia sure is a good thing (I still love Batman: The Animated Series and Crash Bandicoot 3 after all these years...)

What I mean is, if you're going back and touching up some of your old works, the possible ways viewers might pay you to incorporate that into your newer work might get a bit out of hand.

Very ice to see him again. I though that you were just giving your fans the cold shoulder. It'd be pretty cool to see more nostalgia from you.

If I remember correctly, it was sometime during the end of PersonaDA and the beginning of that Pokepeople project. So yeah about 2 year sounds about right.

Hey heeey, Cold was how I found you, I remember! It was through ~Mishuku's SDL match with Cold, and I was quite smitten with him, haha~
He's always been one of my favorites, so it's really cool to see him again! : D
