Hot Cocoa by Lotusbandicoot Hot Cocoa by Lotusbandicoot
The REAL piece I put effort into for Madi's second birthday. :)

So yeah, as old-fashioned and stuff as they are, Mr. JB doesn't make Madi do all the chores and stuff. That's just his 1950s human bodied version that's like that. And the jelly bean Mr. JB and Madi aren't married either, unlike the 1950s human-bodied versions of themselves. Just thought I'd clear that up. :)

Mr. JB, Madison Berry (c) Me

Well I do like seeing them in a different art style, even if Mr. JB's mouth looks a little messed up, it's still a good effort.

okay, I wasn't sure if was accidental or on purpose. I've heard of off model character designs, but usually some goofs don't look that appealing to the eye

You did a Swell job on recreating the art style of the 1950's! The line-less look, and the abstract corners and furniture of it!

You did a great job on the picture!

Great work!

'Kay.
Are the jelly bean people based on family members of your own, or your personal life,or something from the top of your head from long ago?

Well, let's see... there was a set of Flash animations that were a remake of the old Peanut Butter Jelly Time dance, but the new guy in them that replaced the banana looked like a jelly bean or something. So in late 2006, I actually took his colors and made a jelly bean character of my own that looked like him. :o So that's the origin of the jelly bean idea...

But the human-shaped beans were just something I did out of boredom in late 2012; here's the very first one I did: fav.me/d5nyjuy

And their personalities and stuff are just off the top of my head.

The normal jelly bean Mr. JB is based on myself in a lot of ways, while everyone else is just... made up.

Ah. So that's the origin of the yellow bean-shaped cutie and his girl. :3
I like the very first image you did of the human-bean-ings :giggle:

I don't know why,but if I ever try and re-draw your bean character again, I'd like to give them little accessories. Something cool. If not, I'll leave them the way they are.

Yup... well, Madi was originally a fancharacter by a certain user I'm not associated with anymore, but I now have all the rights to Madi. :)

I don't really mind either way. :) They ARE pretty darn simple... :XD:

If you made a girl for Mr.JB of your own,what would she look like if Madi wasn't used?

Well, originally he was going to be single forever. :XD: At least in all the stuff I animated him in. But that's pretty much what my episodes are like now... they don't even acknowledge her existence now. :XD:
