I watched a lot of Toddlers and Tiaras while drawing this one (I know it’s trash but I’m morbidly fascinated by that program and the concept of child pageants in general…). Anyways, these are the main guys from my webcomic Rainbow Carousel - L to R; Sundae, Bubblegum, Bourbon, Sherbet, Turps and Liquorice. 
I find drawing males so hard. That’s why these are neater than the gals; I’ve spent ages making them right, deliberating over the lines and referencing off photos and stuff urghgh… I’m only posting these up because I sorta promised in the last picture! Otherwise I’d keep them to myself until I’m as confident with male figures as I am female figures. >_< These show no where near as much diversity as the ladies - I tried to make Sundae a more muscular and Sherbet a bit bigger, but they all ended up kinda similar in my eyes? I’m dubbing it Clamp bishonen syndrome; when your first experience of attractive manga males have bodies like noodles and you can’t shake yourself out of that rut years and yeaaars later. I have so much to learn. :/
Oh gosh, I’ll stop griping. XD I want Bubblegum’s drippy stars shirt and I love how Turps came out; he’s just how my mind sees him. :D And shoe diversity! Tempted to redraw the ladies shoes because they’ve totally been upstaged by these guys. XD
