The Human Movie

31 Dec

Have you ever wondered what a character that is based off a human would look like as a human? Well, here’s Emmet from the LEGO movie. I chose the moment when he first sees Wyldstyle, with a reference image below. I hope y’all have a happy new years!

Fifty Robots Mostly!

30 Nov

Oh my heavens, oh my stars and garters look at all those fifty robots definitely. There sure are fifty of them down there! Wowee zowee, look at how fifty they are. I’ll explain that I cheated a bit this month in that I was already doing an assignment for my Digital Drawing class where I had to do a drawing a day for the whole term. So I chose this month’s theme so I wouldn’t have to do any more work, because I am a lazy busy man. And for the assignment, half of the drawings have to be in only black and white. So I did that. And since the term is almost over, I have below all fifty *cough* drawings that I needed to do. So there they are. I’ve provided a key at the bottom for those of youse who don’t know all these extremely obscure robuts.

The Horseman’s Gift

31 Dec



I’ve always loved the Headless Horseman, and I was really taken with the notion of this premise. I thought it was really sweet that this terrifying gruesome figure turned the one thing he owns–his pumpkin head–into pie to share with his family on Christmas. I haven’t done a digital drawing in forever, but I liked the way this one turned out in just ink that I was worried I’d make it worse by putting a lot of work into digitizing it. So I left it as it was. I actually missed Christmas dinner this year because I was chundering* downstairs, but I don’t really care. I got to spend the week up to that point with my big brother, my two young cousins, my aunt and uncle, my grandparents, and my parents, which was absolutely wonderful. And that’s really what Christmas is all about, no? The glazed ham’s not as important as the people you eat it with. So my dinner of saltines and watered-down orange juice the next day with my mom was one of the best Christmas dinners I’ve ever had. This has been a spectacular year of drawing with friends, and I know next year’s going to be even better! I’d wish all you other artists Happy New Years, but I’m going to be seeing you all at a New Year’s Party in a few hours, so I’ll say it then. If you’re reading this and it’s already 2014, and I forgot to tell you Happy New Year’s, then Happy New Year’s.

Guess Who Came to Christmas Dinner?

2 Dec

Christmas Final

December is here, and that can only mean one thing: Christmas. And that can only mean one thing: Christmas dinner. And that can only mean one thing: oddballs you may have never met or may be related to showing up to eat with you. Of course, all of those things can mean other things as well, but that’s not the point. Yes, this month’s prompt has a little bit of a tighter focus. Because while I think it’s cool to see what an extremely vague prompt will lead to, sometimes creativity blossoms most when held within certain constraints. And I phrased it in the past tense because by the time these go up Christmas will have already passed. So ruminate on a bizarre houseguest you may shudder or guffaw or marvel at their appearance at your solstice feast, or just take a photo of the weird uncle you didn’t know you had drinking straight from the gravy boat. And most importantly, have a merry Christmas!

My Pet, Peeves

30 Nov


I don’t have that many personal annoyances, so I decided to see what it would look like if I drew something as a manifestation of a pet peeve. I guess this one is “Chewing with your mouth open,” which I must admit is a bit gross.

I realize the photo’s a bit blurry, but the drawing in real life is actually pretty small–only a few inches across–and the only way I have to capture it is my iphone camera. But it’s just black pen and watercolor, if it wasn’t obvious.


31 Oct

I decided to do three images this month! Mostly because each one didn’t take very long. I’ve always heard that the most important part of the face is the eyes or the symmetry or something, so I changed that. Moved ’em around a little bit. Also, since it’s Halloween, it kind of made them look like Sloth from the Goonies!
