Personally, I think dancing is one of the best things to show how dynamic the characters can be. And I am trying to vary the poses I use from drawing to drawing. Of course, Marge and Homer would be the best choice for a Simpsons picture. Having just looked through my gallery again, I noticed I tend to draw them a lot more than most other characters. A bit odd 'cause it doesn't really seem that way.
"Hmm. Homer's Odyssey. Is this about that minivan I rented once?"
Kind of been lacking in art ideas lately. At least I still had some sketches from a while back lying around. I must have drawn this back when I got Season 13 on DVD. I always draw a lot of images based on the episodes of a particular season as soon as it is released. So I suppose you can expect a lot of Season 14 and Futurama Season 6 artwork coming up sometime soon. This is of course based on the first part of Tales From The Public Domain. I don't know why, but I do a lot more Homer/Marge artwork than I intend to.
When I first saw the promo poster for Treehouse of Horror XXII, this was the image I knew I had to draw. It's odd that the part of the poster that stood out most too me wasn't a big part of it, it was just a little part of what I would call an overcrowded design. I suppose it's not too hard for people to realize why I would draw this. Plus I get to continue with the latest colouring style. (I know what I started off with was kind of different but this is pretty much what I want to do with original ideas) I suppose it will look better depending on whatever the situation is but I hope to use the style a lot more often.
Based on the end scene from Beware My Cheating Bart Though instead of the bedroom scene, I decided to give it a beach background with the sun setting. This also gave me the opportunity to play around with the shadows. It's been a while since I've done a pic like this. For some reason I think the seductive Marge art is my favourite to do. At least we know she won't be "stranded".
See now, when I watch The Simpsons, I don't just watch it for humour or plot-lines. I find most inspiration from the animation, hence why my artwork turns out quite different from others. I suppose, you can appreciate it some more if it's a still image, after all you have more time to look, with no motion involved. Anyway, I've always liked doing this type of thing with my work. It's a nice little surprise when they can do these dream sequences on the show. It lets them loose with their artistic license. The 60s/70s had a lot of colour and I was motivated to create this based on what I saw. A nice change especially considering there's usually not a lot of colour in art these days. Then again, I do Simpsons fan art, so loads of Yellow.
