This was going to be my submission for THIS:[link]
BUT I WAS TOO LATE. I'm being stupid, but this makes me very very sad. I thought I had another HOUR or two. *sigh*... I wanted to "officially" be apart of this MOMENTOUS occasion of the 20th anniversary of Bone. But I can't draw fast enough with other school projects, and one computer with PS. And I've been sick since Easter. *wahwahwahboohoohoo*
Oooh, someone's got a frowny face! Better luck next time~
Thorn is reading Moby Dick to Fone Bone... Because I love the twist.
Remember how I said Bone turns 20 this year? Well, they're selling these awesome FULL COLOR editions of Bone with all this snazzy stuff.... LIKE SIGNED ARTWORK!!!!!!!
but It's $150 - $1000. ($1000 for the one with original artwork drawn by Jeff and water-colored by Steve... *sniff* so awesome)
YOU'RE REALLY KILLING ME. *sooob*
Trying color/mood/lighting. Left the drawing messy, because YOU GUESSED more procrastination. I wouldn't be procrastinating so hard if this semester wasn't so booooring. Lot of work, but boooooooring work.
I want to draw cartoons, darnit!
If you haven't yet...
Fone Bone and Thorn are Jeff Smith's/Cartoon Books
I love "Bone" By Jeff Smith. Every-body claims "Watchmen" is the best Graphic Novel of all time. But, Although I'm pretty sure it was mind-blowing in the 80s, I didn't find it all that revolutionary. And although I can totally understand how it helped saved the graphics novel scene and all that, the problem is that if you grew up reading things that were built on something like Watchmen but have had to add to it and evolve and then you go back and read the original... It's not anything you haven't read before. I've always felt those who claim Watchmen o be "The best Graphic Novel ever" are either referring to it's significance in helping Graphic Novels evolve... or they're Super-hero comic fanatics and don't really read the independent or left-wing comics. To me, Bone is undoubtedly the best Graphic Novel ever.
I want to send Jeff Smith a picture like this just say thanks for his book! But I don't know if I want to send THIS one. I think I'll want to send a picture drawn more my own style.
I So badly want a Rat-Creatures figurine! I want one so badly! Some-body buy me one (haha)!
Fone Bone and Thorn are in the forest (At night for some reason).
So here's a sketchdump of mostly BONE doodles. Here we have Thorn and Bone as in Book 8 (Apparently I forgot how to draw Fone's clothes 'der) Them being cutesy, Fone floating around, TED (a very hard character to draw! sarcasm), Some character I promise was my retaliation of some really bad fanfiction, and.. and....
I never really gave much thought to it before, but I think Thorn would be the type to hit puberty and BAM she's a lady. Fone Bone... Being the little nerd that he is, would be the type to squeak up until the summer of his junior year in High School.
Anyway, I feel like I was re-bit with the bone-bug just this past week, and I couldn't help it when this idea came into my head. As a major, "WHAT IF," what IF Thorn and Fone grew up together?
Character's often have conversations in my head, and in this instance, that's pretty much what happened. Thorn and Fone Bone were gabbing back and forth about what growing up would have been like if they'd done it together. So I drew these... That sounds so weeeeird. Please tell me I'm not the only one who this happens to?
Thorn Harvestar and Fone Bone belong to Jeff Smith and Cartoon Books... (But I wish they belonged to me. I'm not that clever as to make 'em up by my lonesome)
Did this right after I finished reading the amazing Bone books by Jeff Smith...I wanted to do a very quick sketch of Fone Bone's full figure on Illustrator, but it turned out I can't work on full bodies on my tablet and I didn't feel like taking out my papers and pencils...so I went for a smaller sketch and added some cute text (which won't make much sense to those who haven't read the books).
