Another very recent drawing. I was just randomly hit with inspiration to draw Juno one night and just had to follow up on that intuition. The weirdest part of all that I was listening to the least "Juno"-esque music at that moment: Cruxshadows!
I think I should try to take on more famous people with distinct facial features/looks and adapt them into my own style just for the fun challenge of it all.
Anyways, I was struck with the urge to draw Coraline (from the book and film of the same name) a few days ago. It was a good little practice for me to translate a character with a very distinct style into my own as well as coloring and playing around with thicker ink lines.
Just dipping into my backlog again. Here we have a drawing from last year that I'm still pretty happy with. It's the characters of "Daria"...as imagined by Tim Burton. Or at least how I think Tim Burton would see them.
This was super fun to draw and I just love how everyone turned out. Even Quinn somehow manages to translate well into the Burton style!
A few weeks back I was out with a friend for lunch at a place that served quite possibly the best mac 'n' cheese ever. At the table beside us, there was a guy with long bright pink hair and equally bright pink shoelaces. It was pretty radtacular and I knew I just had to draw him.
Any excuse to practice drawing guys (as well as hands, always my arch nemesis!) is a good one! I also tried something a little different with the eyes. I didn't include my usual "shine comets" (for lack of a better term) that I normally put in my characters' eyes. Blame "Sailor Moon" for that longstanding drawing habit. :-P
I hope that detail added a bit to this guy's masculinity in some way. I just wanna try and draw guys that actually look like guys and not just pretty boy bishonen.
I found this little sketch lying around on my insanely cluttered drawing table. I remember drawing and coloring this last summer while my trusty laptop was scanning for viruses. Pro-Tip: If some window claims that "YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF TROJANS AND VIRUSES ON YOUR COMPUTER!! DOWNLOAD OUR ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE RIGHT NOW OR LOSE EVERYTHING FOR-EH-VAAAARRR!!!", don't download. It'll just scare you into thinking you have nasty viruses on your computer when, in reality, you don't. So close the hell out of whatever window you're browsing immediately.
Phew, sorry for the tangent but it seems like those virus "fauxgrams" are popping up everywhere these days and it's annoying the snot out of me.
Anyway, I'm thinking I might revive this sketch in some shape or form for a more fleshed out drawing.
