I'm back from my unproductive Christmas break.
Happy New Year!...2009 eh?....kind of sad...it's really the end of an era...not for another 991 years will human kind be able to wear those novelty new years glasses where your eyes look through the zeros. Sad really...I'd hate to be the owner of that quality product...
"Well guys, it's been a damn good 9 years of novelty new years glasses...we're gonna have to shut down for a while...but we'll re-group in the year 3000. Godspeed"
Anyways...enough of my hilariously topical anecdotes...and on to some drawrin.
So rarely do I work in this style...I think it's called...reality? haha
But anyways, this was a portrait that was requested by a friend. Sharpie, graphite, and a Bic ball point. I like that it's a little gritty and loose. Even though I'm an animator slash cartoonist through and through, it feels good to mix it up once in a while.
Mammy Linda on the left and Big Daddy Dominic on the right.
They really loved it which was a relief. There's really no excuse to botch a caricature of people you've seen almost every day of your life.
They compliment each other nicely in caricature form though. My Mom's all jaw and my Dad's all forehead. PS, Thanks guys for my freakishly large jaw and forehead. I'm def the mutant spawn of these two individuals.
And finally, here's my fav life drawing from last semester. A lot more cartoony than usgh, but this model was really askin for it haha.
Last semester also marked the end of my life drawing classes at Sheridan. This semester is basically all about getting the independent film done.
Wish me and the Patsy Pals luck.
