Oh hey guess what 12-day marathon on FXX I can’t stop watching….?  

(I need to take another go at Bart, I think.  Doesn’t quite look right….) 

I want that Lisa on the show.  Someone make that happen.

They kinda already did.  This hair is a little reminiscent of the hair Lisa had in the 1996 episode “Lisa’s Wedding”, where the show jumps 15 years into Lisa’s future.  Her hair was wavier and more voluminous (3d) than the graphic shape it otherwise usually is.  :P

Couldn’t sleep last night, so I doodled various family members circa the late 1970s, based on old photos I had laying around from when I went through them looking to colorize something as a birthday present.  

… also, there’s a rhino.  He’s not family, but he’s good people.

In honor of Peter Capaldi’s first Doctor Who episode today (and also because I need to paint way, way, waywayway more than I do), I overworked did a study of his now-famous glare that makes you feel like you just got caught doing something bad by your stern grandpa….

Or maybe that’s just me.

The background is supposed to be TARDIS blue (I thought it was a neat little nod), but it occurred to me too late that it could actually BE the TARDIS (Specifically, the POLICE BOX sign, throwing some light on him from behind.)  Oh well.  Photoshop, maybe…? 

… I also did a Harry Potter sketch.  No real reason beyond the fact that I wanted to paint Harry Potter, which is reason enough I guess.

My (barely six-month-old) Pentel pocketbrush went mysteriously dry a few weeks ago. After several failed attempts to fix it (I think it might’ve clogged up from using it on wet acrylics maybe…?) I just gave up and replaced it.  

These are a couple of sketches I did of downtown Portland to reacquaint myself with it.  It’s so smooth and the line so variable….. I actually didn’t realize how much I missed drawing with this pen.

I visited my brother over the weekend, which entailed 3 fun days sandwiched between 2 not very fun days spending 9 hours on a train.  On the bright side, the long trip exposed me to environments I might otherwise not have paid attention to if I’d been driving, so I took the opportunity to do some landscape sketches, which I haven’t done in way, way too long.  

Bonus bright side, it got me back into using Copic and Prismacolor grays, which I haven’t used in a pretty long while…

I was drawing apes and watching Avatar and then this happened.

… you ask me, this would only have made a good movie even BETTER.

Saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes recently, and now I have monkeys on the brain…

These were done with screencaps from the film (which meant the poses were limited) but I want to do a full-figured ape (probably Ceasar) doing something… I dunno… apey.

I need to do more studies. Apes are surprisingly tricky to draw….

Oh hey guess what I’ve been watching on Netflix…

Spent the last few weeks watching Buffy: the Vampire Slayer and Angel on Netflix, doodling as I went.  I’m nearly done with Angel, but I’ll probably keep sketching these guys.  SO much fun.
