The sweater vest Cecil is very cute but if you’ve ever been in a desert you will know that absolutely no one, especially not someone who works in radio, will bother to wear one
also please ignore the hand IT’S BAD
Carlos the Scientist practice.
This guys has been really hard to finalize. 8I dude shifts his appearance in my head more then The Man in a Tan Jacket. x-x Also yes this is what perfect hair looks like….TO ME. @-@ Don’t deny the curls.
Night Vale is really good for practicing character design, right? (I only wish I were better at it!) Like so many other fans, my own mental image of the characters is pretty constantly in flux. This is the Carlos I drew tonight, but tomorrow night, I’m certain he’ll look different. =)
I’ve been re-listening to the entire series, which has made me like Carlos a lot more as a character, rather than just as… a plot device? (Which was my initial impression until One Year Later.) He totally starts out like a reluctant action hero, ready to save the town and “figure out just what is going on around here.” But that pretty quickly fades away into general confusion and bad haircuts. And then, well, it’s no surprise that almost dying shifts his perspective on things. And now he’s so well-adjusted to life in Night Vale and he signs text messages with x’s and o’s and he uses gravity going out as a chance to clean the gutters and he thinks a dog is part of what makes a home and just! Man, no wonder Cecil fell in love instantly. Good call on that one, right?
But anyway, he’s also totally like 10, 15 years away from becoming Doc Brown at this point, right? Like, straight up mad scientist. After all, he’s a scientist who studies science. His hair is already graying. He thinks Erlenmeyer flasks represent perfection. He has a danger meter. That measures in fatality units. His perfect hair has to be a little bit more… science-y at this point, right?
Oh god he thinks he’s so suave in his new glitch labcoat oh BLESS HIM
(I draw him making this face a lot, I know.)
stupid WtNV headcanon 233563412: the reason Cecil is a radio broadcaster is because his appearance is in a constant state of flux. He wanted to go into television, but his inability to keep the same face consistently made his career choice (and proving his identity) very hard.
Carlos is happy with Cecil, no matter what he looks like because regardless, Cecil is Cecil. Makes waking up next to him in the morning kind of an adventure, though.
Internet is back! I am back!
Cecil for asofterapocalypse -your ask box is closed but I hope you find this!
I hadn’t seen any versions of Cecil that uses a wheelchair or has a physical disability before this, it’s quite refreshing!

Draw Every Cecil in the Clothes I Have in my Closet, Part 2:
Because I basically am Cecil Gershwin Palmer, I decided to start a thing called Draw C.G.P. in All the Clothes In My Closet, and part 1 can be found here.
This round, we have:
1. Arm crutch user, Black Cecil. He used to dye his locs but after he ran the only hairdresser out of town he’s letting them grow out in the natural color. He’s wearing my makeup, my pink dress, my orange tights and my black combat boots. And my kitty bell collar!
2. Seminole/Cree mix Cecil in a wheelchair, wearing my green star sweater, my purple jeggings, my old lady shoes, my blue knee socks and my green neck ribbon.
3. Afro-Latino Cecil with purple hair and tats. He’s rockin a beautiful frilly blue shirt and some of my bracelets.
4. Dominican/Black/Cheyenne mix Cecil with beautiful flower tattoos, wearing my black lace shirt, my red flowered shawl, high waisted blue jeans and a hair bow.
Ok to reblog. Shitty colored pencils on normal paper.
