Practicing self-portraiture

It's been a few weeks since my lumberjacks, and I have been feeling guilty about not drawing. The host of my art zoom has been traveling though, and it's the sad truth that in the absence of that zoom event it's very easy for me to just do other stuf...

This evening during my art zoom, I drew this green-haired hipster lumberjack as a beginning study for a character I want to draw in a graphic story. My someday character will have a topknot and a pipe. For now, though, here:   Thanks for looking at...

Inktober 15 and 16: Helmet and Compass

17 Oct 2021 1 minute read 1 comment DoctorPlatypus

Two today. The prompt for October 15 was 'helmet' and I opted for Dark Helmet: It doesn't look much like Rick Moranis, but I can catch some of that during November revisions if I want to. The prompt for the sixteenth was 'compass' and I wasn't that...

7 Oct 2021 1 minute read 2 comments DoctorPlatypus

Today the inktober prompt is 'fan'. If I were a responsible scholar I would have drawn a bunch of Maenads ripping some dude to shreds to acknowledge the origin of the word 'fan' (sense of movie fan or Beatles fan, etc) in 'fanatic'. But that sounded...
