I've advanced from avoiding drawing hands altogether to pointy hands that look like someone with knifes instead of fingers, to mitten hands where the person has NO fingers to this retarted sqwiggly looking hands that just look....wrong. Yay for improvement!
This piece was drawn not to long ago during my sketch-a-thon and I knew as I was sketching it that I wanted to work with light and do something different and better then I've done so far. My images so far have been a little flat so to speak and hardly got any depth or persoanlity in them which I'm now hoping to work out and improve for the book I'm drawing of this little character of mine.
This is Po the Blips and her very special necklace, the Rainbow Star (just something I came up with for now) which helps her with her job. More will be revealed as I get further to completing the book. So stay tuned.
But I must say I'm quite proud of this one, it actualy feels like REAL artwork for once! ps. I know the watermarks ruin the artwork for some but I'd rather do that then leave them unmarked and taken away to some remote internet location where people can't check out the artist who made it in the first place
Just a little test on the creation of a little creature from my children-book-in-progress about the Blipses. Not sure if I'll keep 'em rainbow, might make each a different color but we'll see what happens.
The two freaks, Merry and Andante, as children and then as their current adult appearances
When he was a child, Merry was wandering aimlessly all around after the death of his mother and found Andante in trash can in London. He gleefully became best friends with the talking music box and then they stayed together forever from there on out ^^ Throughout their lifetime, Andante was kind of like an older brother to Merry cuz the little vampire was really easy to pick on and he was really naive (and still is, the poor sap ). Andante was also really easy to annoy and piss off And yes, he was a jack-in-the-box, music player... winder-upper kind of thing.
I wanted to draw little Kerasell down there with Merry and Andante, but it would be awkward considering she wouldn't be there in the adult picture. Anyways, the boys met Kerasell two years later and she joined their little family happily, becoming Merry's best friend OR, as Andante recalled it, his "replacement".... so he was very bitter towards her and never showed any sign of kindness, but Kerasell loved Andante as a good friend and she never took his bullying at heart And it usually pissed him off. I want to draw a picture of Kerasell and Andante together to express the feelings they had towards each other back in the day when she was alive ^^
Merry, as a child, had no problem with humans and was actually asked to play by a few of them who did not see him as a threat but simply as a weird misunderstood kid ^^. Andante hated them all with every fiber of his being.
It might not be mentioned in the story so I'll mention it here: How did Andante go from a music box thingy to a tremendous detachable organ monster? He... uh... aw, screw it, I have no idea how to explain it.
These are the residents of Happy Lane, the main setting of the Doctor Dandy story. These are all the neighbors. FROM TOP LEFT TO TOP RIGHT: ...Andi - The neighborhood suspicious teen who lives across the street from Doctor Dandy. She knows of his evil doings but no one believes her. She spies on him all the time. ...Ezekiel (Eze) - The crazy annoying kid with a pirate obsession. He's Dandy's little "apprentice" when really he's his assistant in ridding the bodies. ...Will and Regg - The two landlords of Happy Lane. They sure are not good at their job, though! These two are superstitious and mention seeing a killer ghost run around the neighborhood at night (which is really Dandy going out on his kidnapping sprees) LOL FROM MIDDLE LEFT TO MIDDLE RIGHT ...Karen - The religious fanatic who nobody seems to like hanging around. She knows that Dandy kills children but nobody believes her because they see her as a lunatic...when really she's calling him bad just because he doesn't believe in the Holy Spirit --__-- ...Doctor Dandy - The eccentric freako who is nice on the outside but bitterly dark on the inside. Look this guy up in my gallery, please. ...Meg - One of Andi's friends who believes her story. She's not afraid of Dandy and, along with Andi, tries getting evidence of his evil intentions. She's a risk-taker. BOTTOM LEFT TO RIGHT ...Mr. & Mrs. Goodbody - The neighbors who are just WAY TOO NICE. So nice, it's scary. They are very normal compared to the other neighbors. ...Bosk and Ginger Rothschild - Two doctors who see Dandy as their rival/enemy for he's ruining their business. They are really unkind neighbors. Ironically, these two happen to be the people who @#$%ed up Dandy's childhood, but they are unaware of it. Another twist is that Ezekiel is their son. ...Jango - The drag queen and unloved weirdo. Jango is an uncaring person who could not keep a secret to save his life. He scares kids for fun and loves to party till morning.
