"...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...

How can a sponge have a kid?

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.

This art captures the heart of the early seasons perfectly well.
