Sooo, the downstairs scanner wouldn’t work, so I just took a picture of my progress on Leonardo with my regular camera. Better than the webcam, but still not as good as an actual scan. Frustrating!!
But it’s coming along nicely, I think!
Got the light box out of storage and worked on Leo some more tonight. Here’s another crappy webcam picture. I’ll try to get it scanned with the downstairs scanner tomorrow so it can be seen more clearly.
The lettering is awful… I am really bad at lettering, ugh. I’m also not too sure if I like his left (our right) hand…. it looks… wrong. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them! It also is way too cramped on the right side, and I think the banner needs to come out more to the right, particularly on the top one. That might help with the lettering/spacing, too. This is just a pencil drawing, so there’s still time to fix it. But now I’m going to bed. This has been so much fun to work on, though! I truly wasn’t expecting to feel inspired to draw jack squat for the next few months, so it’s been a pleasant surprise.
OK, I’m going to bed now, but I wanted to post the super-rough sketches of Donatello and Raphael. Mikey is to the left of Raph, but he’s not cooperating and I’m too tired to keep trying tonight.
Donatello’s banner says: "Question: Do You Like Penicillin On Your Pizza?"
And Raphael’s says: "You Gotta Know What a Crumpet Is To Understand Cricket."
And Michelangelo’s banner will say (of course): "Wise Man Say, ‘Forgiveness Is Divine, But Never Pay Full Price For Late Pizza’"
These are way too much fun! :D
Sketches of Leonardo! Super rough, because I am lacking my light box and scanner, so I took these pictures with my webcam. I’ll get my light box tomorrow and try to put this together nicely.
His banner is going to say "They were many, but we
kicked… we fought well.”
The other three Turtles are on their way!
tea time with Linda!
About a million years ago, I held a coloring contest on my Harry Potter website. I drew this piece of line art, and invited people to color it. I believe I drew pictures for the top winners…. I remember getting a lot of entries, but I lost most of them over the years. But this one managed to make it from my old computer to this one, so I thought I’d post it. Way to go, Andrea L. Peterson, wherever you are!
This was so fun to do, and I really wish that I still had the rest of the entries. Some of them were really fantastic.
I REALLY long time ago, I did just a couple illustrations of Lady Jessica and Piter de Vries from Frank Herbert’s “Dune”. I was never really into those books, I think I read one once, and I saw the David Lynch film because I wanted to see Brad Dourif as Piter. So there’s a tiiiiiny bit of the Lynch-version influence here, but this is more what I saw reading the book.
I have no idea when I drew these. Well over a decade ago, I’m sure.
Old drawing of Remus Lupin, but still one of my favorites. Drawn in 2002 with mechanical pencil on 8x11” paper.
Oh man, I am finding some goodies on my old computer. Stuff I’d drawn that I’d long since forgotten about! Including this one.
There once was a time (2003-ish?) when I drew tons of Brad Dourif fan art, including vaguely pin-up-ish ones like this one of Tucker Cleveland from “Graveyard Shift”. Those were the days…. hahaha!
