Etiquette by CalamityChemist Etiquette by CalamityChemist
Here's Cecil, practicing the finer points of ‘social conversation and etiquette’ in front of his mirror when he's alone. He’s got all the lines that a gentleman should use, knows how to waltz and can even set a table for fine dining. Unfortunately when he actually gets into a conversation with anyone—let alone someone of high society—he freezes and can hardly do more than stammer or flee. But I’m sure his mirror enjoys the company of such a spirited, intelligent fellow.

…stay classy, Cecil. :I

I had a lot of fun with this—trying to figure out how to do art on my new system! It’s a bit different but I’m slowly getting used to it. The perspective in this picture between Cecil and the mirror is pretty awful--I'll work harder on that.

Hope you enjoy it! :heart:

D'awwwww, he is SO cute! <33 I totally love how old it looks and like, the words how they look like they're part of the wall, but they're NOT, it's what he's SAYING! That's so smart and unique! <3

Thanks so much! I'm glad you think he's cute. :> The words-on-the-wall was a last minute idea, but I thought it helped to get his personality across.

He sounds like my kind of boy -w-
I love a very elegant and well mannered boy like that, even when he seems so shy and nervous, especially love that :D

:I he reminds me of my friend Charlie. The nicest boy, but get him in front of more than two people and he stutters and just eventually stops talking all together. :(
Eventually Charlie and Cecil will come out of their shell though, I hope :)

Dude... Cecil is the PERFECT gentleman. :iconwthplz:

I should follow this bit of advice and practice. I'm so horrible around folks some times. x__x I don't think I've ever seen his eyes this wide. Usually you incorporate your trademark eyelids but this nice, wide eye is perfect considering what he's doing. This is also, on the whole, brighter than most pics I've seen with Cecil. Which is cool. Again, it goes well with what he's doing. <3

He is the bar by which we must judge all other gentlemen. :I

LOL, I kinda already practice...my facial expressions, that is. I spend a ton of time just pulling faces at myself in the mirror in an attempt to find a cute one, haha. I haven't seen his eyes this wide, either! It felt so strange, not to draw my signature lids. So glad you like it, man! Thank you! <3

After seeing this it is my sincerest hope that Cecil meets someone who's completely carefree and lacks any social graces. Also calls Cecil Twig mask. Cause hes like a twig with a mask.

Anyone who sticks around Cecil for more than ten minutes would likely have to be such a person. :c
