For Tarpalsfan, Abe sapien. by SkekLa For Tarpalsfan, Abe sapien. by SkekLa
I had promised you time ago, my dear friend Tarp, that I would draw you something...something especially for you.
I really could not think of anything else you would like better than this!...
It might seem alittle odd, that's because I used coloured pencils in most of the picture, to try this material I'm not so used to, in a character who I'm not used to draw either...I really took all the time I could to get him as right as I could...
Did I make it??? Does Abe look good for your taste?
I hope he does!...Though I wonder...Is he waving at you, or would he touch you to capt your memories and such?...
Enjoy it, my friend!:iconsmeagolsmileplz:

Tahnks a lot, Sandcastler! This was the second attempt at Abe I ever drew...and I believe I have only drawn him three times...^^ So, your words make me proud! ^^

I'd LOVE to see the female of the species:"Babe" Sapien!! ;)  A cute girlie pose with her webbed feet kicked-up behind her would look divine!!

Love this character!!

His personality, skills :D

You've really captured his spirit in this one. :D

Love the pose, the shadow over his face and the way he holds out his hand. But we all know he can read minds with those hands, so that gesture can be interpreated a whole lot of ways. Beautiful. Simply, breathtaking :)

I do too, he's my favorite from Hellboy! ^^

Thank you!..I did all I could to get him right, I have rarely drawn Abe! ^^

Thanks a whole lot for saying this!...I tried my best to make the gesture half undecypherable, it's ambiguos precisely because of that: is he greeting us?...reaching out to read into our heads?...just offerin g high five?...we're left to guess!

I feel flattered! thank you again! :bow:

:D I'll admit to a mild crush on him, and Hell Boy too.

And yes, it's a gorgeous gesture.

*************

:iconhellboyplz: Oh great, it's her again.
Abe: Who? (focuses) Oh, Lady Despair, I do so detest being near her, she does radiate painful waves for me to read.
:iconhellboyplz: Well, it aint pleasant for me either. I've pumped enough silver and holy water into her to kill a thousand werewolves and vamps, and she still keeps coming back

SkekLa: actually, I have been throwing my eyes to the blue one more...but I reckon you'll not liike him, either...sigh...just look at those huge dark eyes!...and his colors! I love those stripes he has!...My skin was as nice as that one once!...only not as colorful as that of my brothers...or his...*again, sighs at Abe, looking at him with adoration*

Casanova? Abe? I don't think Abe would know what to do with a woman if she sat naked in his lap!
Oh great! Now there is a vision I could do without! :no:
.
He seems to be a bit of an innocent. That is part of his appeal.
.
He doesn't get much romance. :(

Oh ya, I remember him in Hellboy! Ya, he was cool had gadgets and had to swim againt the demon things.

Nommo's are the children of Amma the dogon sky god. Dogon's are a mysterious tribe of people who new about the two suns of sirius A - B before anyone could possibly have known the second sun was there. When we look at sirius we see one star, but if you use the hubble telescope it is actually a binary star system.

Exactly! That was him!...My friend Tarpalsfan adores him, and the Hellboy series, so I made this picture as a gift for her.

And the strangest thing is Sirius is my guiding star. :)
Yes, they're actually two...still, they're positioned in a way we can't distinguish it by mere sight...fascinating isn't it?
I didn't know about nommos or Amma, thought I'd heard something about Dogons...I'll find out more! They sound very interesting...And I love ancient cultures.

I checked them...really, Ihad forgot a lot on them...Now I read on I remembered a lot of things I had heard on them! XD
Crzay how I forgot about them when I recall a hundred pagan and celtic myths and cryptozoological research and such...my head is failing!!!
Oh but it does make sense!...Sometimes I hum old melodies I never heard...or instinctively know how to do a certain thing which I never did before...I think it's some kind of precognition...if one has to give it any name...

ya, I call it intuition, although precognition is a perfect explianation.

The all seeing Eye. HAHA I get it all in my dream song, conversations, stories, all kinds of strange and cool things. I only put some stuff up here a deviant and the rest I keep. Sometimes writting the stories to my friends rather then post up here for everyone. I write some down , but usually can remember the good ones. Wohoo! hehe.

You did very well for a medium and subject you aren't used to. It has dramatic lighting, and you got all the details. Looks like something straight out of the hellboy comics, but more specifically shaped and illustrated. Bravo!

You should have heard me squeel when I saw this! (scared the hell out of Cat'! too! :evilaugh:) You should have seen me-I jumped up and licked the monitor! (POO! it is/was very dusty and not very Abe like at all. Not that I've licked him before..:( ).
Anyway, I LOVE this-He really is beautiful! You say that your not used to colored pencil? I can't agree! The colors and reflexions are incredible. You drew him better that I can! The details, honey! You ought to draw Abe more often-you have down pat girl!
I want to put him in the Gungan Cafe, and some other clubs too! He deserves LOTS of love! :dance: Wow I love him! You made my day, dear. Your honestly did! I really can't say how awed I am be this! :faint:

Hm...monitor licking never tastes like it should, does it?...:giggle:
Heehee but it's true! I'm not used to colored pencils at all!...And this was my first try ever to color Abe!...I'd never done that before...I'm happy with the results though, and if you like him all that much, it must be a good sign!!!:dance:
He couldn't not look gorgeous though...he IS gorgeous!:hug:
Oh go ahead, put 'im where you fancy please!...You're deeply welcome!
I feel really happy to know I made you happy with him! Big hugs for you, Cat and Don!...Oh, and your mom too! :tighthug:

Nah! I starle the kid. But she is used to my mad outburst by now.

My monitor screen is dusty. If I scaped the dust off of it...I could plant a tomato seedling in it. But, I fear that if I did that, the fruit the tomato beared would taste like monitor...not very good.

Your...I mean my Abe drawing is beautiful. Those are some incredible abs' dear Abe is sporting...talk about licking...*I will shut up now!*

Hon-did you put him in the Hellboy Universe club? There's also the:

Yeah he is! Swimming develops fab-abs!!! :#1: And...well, you can do whatever you like to him...:icongleameyesmeagolplz:
I won't be horrified!

Nope I didn't...but I will if you think it's a good idea! :nod:

Anyhoo...I don't know if Abe's fins are noxious or not. I couldn't get through my monitor to him. :cries: I will have to stick to canned sardines and imagine...
.
Yes, it must be the swimming! Abe doesn't seem to have an iota of fat on his frame! Do you know what I saw that was very disturbing indeed? Somone drew a fat Abe here. The drawing looked like a cross between Jabba the Hut and Abe...:(
.
How do you know that Abe isn't poisnous? What if he has toxic skin? He does have markings like a crate seasnake? Maybe he'd be like licking one of those hardhead catfish we talked about recently...woooo! So dizzyyy! Loooky at the purty colorssss....

NOOOooooo! I see ponys! Tell me you haven't been seduced to the Pony fandom! Shudder! I feel almost as ill as I did when I saw theresing to be a second SMURF movie! :puke: I don't understand ponys! To sweet. Like sucking cotton candy up your nose and gagging to death on it! (that ought to be there is going to be...but I got a browser bug again! :cries: )
.
I tried licking through the monitor. All I managed to do was wear the taste buds off my tongue and leave read streaks smearing my monitor. It really is hard to see the screen-and tongue feels really wierd! I can't taste anything except dust anymore either. :shrug:
.
What?! You not going to lick Abe? Your going to lick Samwise instead? I thought you were not to fond of Sam...and what did Sam say when you attempted to lick him? I bet he wasn't happy, I hope he didn't turn to violence.

Hahaha, don't fret!...Not pony fan...I admit I got to watch some chapters because a friend told me "they weren't what they used to be" and "I really should give 'em a try"...I fell. I watched some. And I strangely found myself laughing at the antics of pastel colored horsies...O.O I was astonished, believe me...but this new pony series is full of humor (both complex and simple)and feels more like an animated sitcom than like a little pony thingy...It's so weird...I have to recognize they have made me laugh...THEY EVEN JOKE ABOUT THE WORKOHOLICS!!!...And they do it well...
The old generations were...well, the drawings were pretty, but they were, yes, like sucking cotton candy up yer nose, as you said! XP
.
Don't suffer, I got it...another smurfs movie...weird...O.O
.
Oi...nasty problem you got there...hm...well then, we'll have to find the way to break the "fourth wall" and get Abe into the audience: you!...:plotting:
.
NO, WE DIDN'TSS MEAN THAT!!!...We wouldss never lick fat hobbitsess!!! O.O EEEK!!!....
Better licking nice pretty Abe fishiman...but fears he might be poisssonous preciousss....
