Not to end on too harsh a note for the kids, they do get to go to FUNZone. The agreement was for if they went undefeated during the regular season. So, losing the championship doesn’t keep them from getting their party.
Here’s a personal piece I just finished. I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons with my family and I think it’s sad how orcs are depicted as just a bunch of mindlessly aggressive monsters. They have families, right? They must. So, here’s a candid portrait of an orc dad and his offspring.
Here are my girls playing in the street.
It’s kind of sketchy and I think the arms look weird. Not worthy of the portfolio, but it’s still fun and refreshing. 🙂
Here’s the finished version. The first sketch showed him in mid-air over the water, as if caught in mid-leap. Once I drew it, I decided he kind of looked like he was already in the water. I think it would work either way, but I already did a mid-leap image last time. I thought drawing bubbles in this would be fun, so I put him underwater. Same font as the other one: Komika Boo.
I think this is the final version. I’ll need to double-check the colors on my other computer, but it’s getting late tonight. I’ll just post it as-is. If the colors look a bit too bright, blame it on my laptop. I’ll make adjustments tomorrow if it needs it.
The font is a distorted, gradient-overlaid, embossed version of Komika Boo, by Larry Yerkes. That’s a free font I got from some free font site. I’d put a link to the author’s Myspace site, but I looked at it and, YIKES. Not linking directly to that. But feel free to put his name into Google and find him if you want. He goes by WolfBainX.
Anyhow, here’s the image:
I found a cool little online toy called scribbler. Here’s some quick scribbles I made. Give it a try. It’s fun.
