In which I vagueblog

tenor.gifThere is something very cool coming in a few weeks, but I can’t talk about it yet because if I do I’ll fuck it all up and it won’t happen.  The problem is that the Very Cool Thing is currently consuming all of my braincycles because I’m excited about it and for the lyfe of me I can’t come up with anything else to talk about.

Note that I had to look at “lyfe” up there for maybe two or three full seconds before I figured out what was wrong with it and by then I was entertained by my own dumb so I decided to leave it in.

So.  Yeah.  Uh.  Hm.

…I got nothing today.  What was the last good book you read?

ANNOUNCING AN EXPERIMENT

This will either become a thing or quietly disappear never to be mentioned again.

I wanna start an advice column.

Have a problem?  One that doesn’t need resolution anytime soon, because I don’t have a timeline for launching this yet?

Email me at luther@prostetnic.com and tell me about it.

Feel free to make something up if you think it’s more interesting than your actual life.  🙂

Proof of art

I didn’t do anything today other than draw and sleep, and … well, I can’t make a post out of what I did while I was sleeping.  I’m still not any good at this, really, but I’m enjoying it.

This might be my favorite picture I’ve done so far.  The boy’s gotten back into Phineas & Ferb recently and I love Dr. Doofenschmirtz.

Ferb!

A lot of what I’ve been doing lately, when I haven’t been drawing established characters, is just playing with putting different body parts together and seeing what happens.  I kinda like this guy but then again when I started drawing him he was supposed to be a woman, so …

This is what happens when I stare at Phineas’ enormous triangle head for a while and wonder what a rectangle head looks like.  Answer: terrifying.

Dude on the left is random.  The girl on the right started off as just a nose, and her nose was supposed to be the shape of her whole head, and then I decided it was a nose so she ended up oversized.

Working on mouths.

This was fiddling around, too; keep the same basic head shape and hair and play with the other face parts and see what happens.  I kinda like the one with the straight mouth and the frog nose.

Art, again

…okay. I can draw recognizably female human faces. Good, that was worrisome. 🙂

I am sleepy so here is art

IMG_6890So as goofy and simplistic as they are these actually kind of represent some progress; I’m starting to draw original pictures rather than copying something that’s in front of me, and at the suggestion of drawabox.com I’ve switched to working with pens rather than pencils because they force me to stop and think before making a mark on a piece of paper.  Sooner or later I will start doing little cartoon dudes with, like, bodies and shit, but I’m not quite there yet.  Just faces for right now.

Weird phenomenon: I drew these five faces, and then realized they were all dudes.  I mean, I suppose the monkey-thing doesn’t really have to be a dude, but in my head they were all dudes.  And then I thought I ought to draw at least one girl to even things out and then panicked because apparently I have no idea how to draw women.

So, uh, I’ll work on that unexpected problem tomorrow, I guess?  Sure.
