A Legend Was Born... by Carossmo A Legend Was Born... by Carossmo

"...Your father and I would have had such a terrifically dull life if you had never been born...."
- Mrs. Margaret B. SquarePants (SB's mom; Quote from the letter SB received in the book 'Mother Knows Best')



So I've been busy in the past weeks (with plates)... and should be practicing in drawing realism since we now have figure drawing classes this school year, but I gave this one an exception... hey, it is SpongeBob's birthday :party:

Also yesterday was Tom Kenny's birthday, so this artwork to dedicated to their birthdays, as well as to the upcoming 13th anniversary of the SBSP series on July 17...

It's a bit too plane and simple to me... oh well... I seriously need more practice...

Wow, I have so much in my to-do list (including the requests)... but this one's checked off now, finally! Sorry for being inactive these days...

And again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPONGEBOB!!! :cake:

Warning: big file...

coloring - artrage studio pro

I may not get your question but sea sponges are real, organic and look like this (you can find more images on google if you type sea sponges)

SpongeBob takes form of a kitchen sponge (guess that's probably why you're confused) reasons probably for comedic effect, while his parents are actual sea sponges.

Haha actually sea sponges can reproduce sexually (they expel the sperm and egg cell into the water and together it starts life wherever it lands) and asexually (budding, as seen in one episode). Learned this in science class btw.

SpongeBob however... well...

In Truth or Square, it's shown he could be born normally like mammals (with him seen in his mom's belly... which is a... uhm... strange joke, but then the pic I drew here did kinda followed that rule) 

But here's a baby pic of him following the first way of reproduction I mentioned.

Your art is seriously amazing. At first glance, I thought this was official artwork for Spongebob. It captures the style of the show very well, and has a very sweet emotion behind it. :hug:

I was supposed to put watermarks on all my works though... it's just I couldn't stand my username before ^^; I waited until I got a premium membership and changed it to a better one that I like. 

I honestly didn't expect that this will spread everywhere though :'D

Wait, I just realized that I DID put the watermark on this too after all... it's somewhere in the blue titled floor :ashamed: I just forgot I added it there whoops... It was so blurry even I didn't see it

Just keep drawin' and postin' :happybounce: That's where I started

Though the why-abouts about why he was born square is a mystery. But again, life would be dull if he was never born. :D

There are several members of his family that are Square, his uncle, sort of one of his cousins, his paternal grandfather, his western ancestor, and both his prehistoric ancestors are two. It is most likely a trait that Harold was a carrier of (which he got from his dad) and SpongeBob got the trait.
