Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner by Sokai-Sama Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner by Sokai-Sama
This one was really fun (and relaxing, which is what I sorely need nowadays, sadly ~_~ ) to do (with pose ref from the W.I.T.C.H. comics).

I've always enjoyed catching the little inspirations or 'tributes' of sorts that the W.I.T.C.H. artists do from time to time, if you're astute enough to catch it, whether they'd meant to mimic things or not.

Like that one panel of Caleb taking a literal hit for Cornelia, which someone on here posted, I believe, and showed the correlation between it and a quite similar panel from the Sailormoon manga, of Endymion doing the same for Serenity.

And now, this, here, which is quite 'Dirty Dancing'-esque. :heart:

If it had been the absolute intent on their part, Hell if I know and others who steadily read the comics and are super up on the latest art and anything, period, within relation, as I do not and am not.

At any rate, it was, again, a joy to draw this. For one, it reminds me of my hubby and I, and for another, I haven't honestly drawn Irma in a while...which should be a sin for me, since she's my second fave W.I.T.C.H. gal, with her humor pretty much mirroring my own. :p

AND, lookit. I drew another guy...AND he didn't come out like complete shit. *Dances*

So...you know. Celebrations all 'round, I guess. :p :nod:

Ah, it's wonderful to see Irma and Joel together - it really drives me crazy, the comic did this turn and invented that Stephen-guy to be Irma's big love.
Thank you for this liquid awesomeness :)

Joel was my favorite Irma love interest. I hated how he dissappeared in the comics without hardly any real realitonship yet with Irma. Worse yet, he only was in the background in the series's second season.

Andrew Hornby stole the show's second season instead. :pissed:

I never personally read that far but I am (obviously) aware of him, their attraction and his poof! Bye-bye routine. That WAS odd, wasn't it? o_O LoL

He did, didn't he?? He was/is ugly, too (Andrew). ~_~ Lol

Always the good characters disappear in series. I kind of miss Cedric and Orube too. I hated that the tv series didn't get a third season with Orube in it.

Ugh yes Andrew and Miranda both of them stole the series second season. They should have been the ones who poofed and dissappeared lol

That was my faveourite witch-poster for so long. I SO wanted that Irma and Joel should keep being together...they didn't really break up or anything either...okey so they officially never were together either ansd...wait, where am I going with this...

I guess I just hate how he just "disappeared"...

Weird how I never related to DD whenever I looked at this picture, I LOVE DD...oh well, now I know!

LoL Yeah, I do recall that, at least (about their relationship, or lack thereof). :nod:

I thought of DD as soon as I first saw it. ^_^ I was like, "Wait, wait...why does this look familiar to me....OMG! Dirty Dancing!" :p
