Daily sketch blog, because daily projects have worked out so well in the past....

 

day 203/365
Wadsworth: You *were* jealous that your husband was schtupping Yvette. That’s why you killed him, too!
Let’s talk about Clue.
This movie is fucking amazing and has always been one of my favorites and is an instance of my mom showing me weird shit.The other thing is this is my childhood Tim Curry. People like to judge others based on what their cultural reference points are and I had enough people in college give me shit for not having seen Rocky Horror sooner, but I think Clue is a fantastic. So what, everyone has different definitive movies, instead of lamenting someone’s ‘horrible’ childhood because they don’t know the same pop culture cues as you, take it as an opportunity to share something new with them.
One of my best friends has never seen Little Shop of Horrors, but I know she’d love it, we have plans to sit down and watch it, because I know she’d love it. Fantastic movie, but I prefer the true ending to the hollywood ending.
But fuck, just enjoy shit and share the shit you enjoy with someone who hasn’t experienced it yet.
Keep your drawing hand strong and I’m going home to sleep with my wife.

Day 202/365
Summer fashion to beat the heat.
I don’t really consider breasts to be all that big a deal, I don’t really want to call this not safe for work because it doesn’t really feel sexual, this feels more like a shitty representation of a model in a figure drawing class, except I made up everything.
The politics of nudity, especially female nudity are annoying as fuck.
Keep your drawing hand strong, I’ll be back tomorrow with something new.

Day 201/365
I haven’t seen much of Bob’s Burgers, but I know about Tina and her attraction to butts.
I don’t draw enough butts. I’m actually really happy with this. The butts are varied which is good. I also like how I drew Tina, this is nothing like the show’s style and it feels more like my own art, but with ideas from the show, like her eyes behind the glasses.
I need to just sit down and marathon it or something.
Hmm, I’m now going back and forth between listening to Sabriel as read by Tim Curry and To Kill A Mockingbird, as read by Sissy Spacek. I’ve read Sabirel a few times, most recently 2 years ago, so I’ve been listening to it on a sleep timer before naps or going to bed at night.
I guess that’s my real benefit of using Audible, getting books I own or have read and listening to them. This has been a really nice experience though.
M’kay, I’ll be back tomorow with something new. Keep your drawing hand strong and your booty game tight.

Day 200/365
200 friggin’ days, oh damn.
We’ve seen a lot of Frida and Salvador since their first appearance 100 days ago. I intended this to be colored but I dunno where I left my colored pencils, but I’m still pretty happy with this.
i’ve been feeling kind of mediocre tonight, which sucks because I felt so fucking good on thursday and yesterday morning and I didn’t do anything with it. I don’t even feel like hell, I just feel unnecessary. Like, I don’t have the energy to even hate myself, it’s weird and annoying. I have things I want to work on but I’m just not doing this.
That said, this sketch came out pretty good for me starting the pencils wrong. I also knew that Frida would be dipping Sal, but dip photos are always the woman being dipped, so for a moment they both had breast. I also don’t feel like her breasts are right, they should be more squished against his body and her arm supporting him would be more around his back than it is. I’m awful at kisses so I wish they looked more like they’re enjoying this but I can nitpick everything to pieces no matter how much I like it.
On listening to To Kill A Mockingbird, I have about 3 hours of story left, the verdict is being given for the trial. i also started listening to Sariel by Garth Nix and read by Tim Curry (Sissy Spacek is reading TKAM) but I just reread it the other day, so I’m using it on a sleep timer to fall asleep to which is pretty nice.
Well, I might eat something. In not feeling much recently food is way boring so eating more than necessary to stave off hunger has become work. Which sucks. I just want to care about something.
Keep your drawing hand strong, maybe I’ll feel more like doing anything tomorrow.

Day 199/365
I drew up Godzilla. I had a more complex idea planned but this one’s all right. I wanted to do more of a city landscape but my initial sketch was wrong. I’ve no idea where my few erasers have gone, so I changed it.
It was always going to be Godzilla, but the angle was higher above his head. And he was facing the camera, but these things happen.
—
I had big plans to draw stuff tonight, but that hasn’t happened and now I have to go to bed, so I fucked up. I doodled up some actors this morning, dig it. Admittedly, some more successful than others. And during lunch I doodled up Curt

Day 198/365
Playing around with relative sizes. Technically this is another Big Myth Playground sketch.
The flower is a Calla Lily, i wanted something that looked like it could hold water, I realize I forgot to add some shading to indicate how the has curved into the ‘bowl’ but also where it wraps down and around.
I just doodled some Satyrs, no names or anything, they’re just getting a drink from a giant flower. Or they’re tiny and the flower is normal sized, whatever wets your whistle.
I’m more proud of this sketch than I’ve been of some of the others recently.
I’m 7 hours into To Kill a Mocking Bird, it’s a 12 hour story. I’m just getting tot he trial and Atticus is cross examining the attending officer to the rape that Tom Robinson was accused of. I really forgot how little of the book is about the court case, everything proceeding it feels not unnecessary, but like a different story, but it is about this girl’s development as she grows apart from her beloved older brother and a major turning point in her life.  I really, really want to read my copy of Capote now, but I need to finish TKAM first, and some comics I’ve started, like Are You My Mother and Saga, and Zero…I wish podcast apps worked like Audible does where I can pause and bookmark where I am so I can close the app. I miss listening to podcasts the way I used to, but listening to books and things off audible has been incredibly nice recently. But there is a satisfying familiarity in listening to TKAM. I think I may set up Sabriel to listen to as I go to sleep if I can set a sleep timer, I need to check that.
Books are wonderful!

M’kay, keep your drawing hand strong, I’ll be back tomorrow with something new :D

Day 197/365
I wanted to try drawing Lawrence in a different style, I think I should have stuck with him and not added in Kevin or MM.
i dunno, there’s distraught running happening.
This feels a bit cartoony, like an overly detailed 1940s Micky Mouse or something. I tried to make Lawrence feel softer and more fluid than I usually draw him.
i feel a bit disappointed with this, I didn’t have a good idea so the final sketch is weak, but I need to get the weak sketches out of the way so I can draw better, so there’s that. Maybe tomorrow will yield something I like more.

Day 196/365
I’ve been working on some new characters…
I posted this over on my rarely used sketchblog, a collection of design sketches for these two.
Now that the guy is in full color he feels like like Bikky from FAKE and a bit more like Link, from A Legend of Zelda. (For those not in the know, BiKKy was this kid adopted by these gay-but-not gay-but-for-real-gay cops from this old 90s shouneyaoi. It’s mostly barely shounen ai, then there’s boning in the last book so yeah… here’s another drawing of Bikky) I think FAKE was the first dirty manga I read. Possibly, I don’t think I had Level C until later, and sometime in high school I saw Boku no Sexual Harassment. I think I’ve moved onto a place where I can accept that I read and watched a lot of shitty anime and yaoi when I was a kid, but man, old censorship and everything America got was completed shit from the 90s, no near concurrent releases for us. I guess it was better than kids in the 90s reading really bad scans of things or having to learn japanese and somehow buy stuff from japan without the internet.
Childhood aside…Go check out that first link with other sketches of this duo. They’re some assassins and the guy is possibly genderfluid or genderqueer, I’m not sure which is a better term. Or he’s just a dude whose cool with wearing girly clothes. I don’t care, but i think it works in the weirdest way. I mean, he’s a close assassin, i don’t know how he avoids being caught and found out when he’s so damn flashy and attention grabbing. The woman is a sharpshooter, markswoman. She prefers not getting close to her targets, but also has issues getting close to people in her private life.
I’m not entirely sure what their relationship is. Friendly rivalry? Are they trying to kill each other in a non-married Mr. and Mrs. Smith deal? Are they friends? Co-Workers? I have no fucking clue I just made these characters in the last few days.
I’m not entirely happy with the art here. Her face is the wrong shape entirely, and there’s something off about the guy. I also don’t like how her hair came out. I wanted to try something different, but I drew it entirely wrong. Well, not entirely, just the bangs, they’re fucking ugly as fuck man.
I’ve hit that point of the evening and not eating real food for hours, it’s time for me to just fade away. Keep your drawing hand strong I’ll be back tomorrow with something new.

I haven’t done any BMP sketches in a while, so I decided to Skulby it izzuppp!!!
This sketch came out better than expected given how my pencils started. The face was supposed to be looking more up but remembering how awful I am at drawing the bottom of jaws I changed it to a character who’s head is a skull.
I think the Lawrence and Kevin in the foreground look pretty all right. This sketch reminds me a lot of this one from not long ago…they’re kind of thematic cousins, but thinking about this one I have a different narrative. Instead of Skulby puppettering and controlling the citizens inside the snowglobe, he’s oversized and magically affecting things on a massive scale. In my orignal idea for this (you can see the pencils too) I had Magic Man flying up to attack, but decided this sketch worked better like this.
I feel thehatching here came out well, but i think having a little on the back of Lawrence and Kev’s heads would push things that much more.

Day 194/365
This is kind of something I’ve considered doing for a while. Drawing my characters normally, but wearing their Tomodachi Life garb.
I haven’t been able to draw much recently. This isn’t bad, but it doesn’t feel as good as other sketches. Maybe if I colored it given how simple the inking it but I don’t want to.
Currently my demon, Vinnie, is wearing a grass skirt and matches his wife, my character Alpha. But here he is in demon form with the grass skirt. I like how goofy this is, but it’s not my best sketch. Far from my worst though.
I tried drawing a woman i want to be an assassin, My attempts 1, two and three - I was thinking about writing a 16 page story for a contest but I also need it to not connect to my other worlds so I have to make someone new. I’m not sure if I’ll be developing this or waiting a bit longer to make her. I only have until September 16th, so not much time to waste.
