This is a collaberation done with MissusPatches. the theme was to use Tinny Tim and Mom. We traded sketches and finished each others drawing. The sketch she sent was excellent. I couldn't change a thing (well, much anyway).
I can' t wait to see what she's done to my piddly little sketch.
Not much surprise here, is there? You didnít think Iíd do this entire series and NOT sneak in one of the Futurama women? The big choice was who to use: Amy? LaBarbara? Mrs. Wong? Petunia? The Omicronian queen, with the unspellable name?
Seven drawings in a week. Done! I pulled it off. The drawings werenít all that tough to produce. The stressful part was timing, being sure that Iíd be sitting in front of the computer to post in the correct sequence.
I am using a few consistent items through out this series. In particular Iím using pastels, the same background color, and the same dress. With a couple of changes, Iím even using the same message.
Thanks everybody, for indulging me while I tried my hand at other characters.
P.S. Question of the day: Did you notice what I usually donít use, but did on this one?
Believe it or not, this dress is supposed to be a disguise. Leela would blend right into the crowd, wouldnt she? Maybe because its so blatantly obvious nobody would notice her.
On a personal note, its not very often when a drawing smacks me in the face and knocks me onto my little butt. But this dress almost did. Ive attempted several times to draw it and (hopefully) this time I got the thing right.
Oh yes, almost overlooked this detail. Lookit! Background!
I had one of those Eureka! moments last Saturday. Taking a quick glimpse through my gallery, its easy to notice one thing I very rarely use, a background. I was camping over on the coast and happened to bring the camera. I was watching my nieces play on this very bridge when - Brain flash! An idea, you know, a headache with pictures.
Ive seen drawings where a figure is superimposed over a random background, but never one where the figure is actually fit into the background.
