An Alligator Artistic Cycling

Alligator's Playing Obscure Sports! That was a recent topic from Carsten Bradley for his daily Artist Sketch Challenge. I did mine, an Alligator Artistic Cycling in Manga Studio, leaving the roughs in there to show process. I'd originally intended to have his mouth closed, sketched it with an open smile, then changed my mind back to closed. I left out his right hind leg to retain a clean line/curve to his tail, figuring we probably wouldn't see it anyway. I'd like to color this one up for fun - I'll post it on this blog when I get around to that.

Calvin & Hobbes and...Stitch

Another great topic/challenge/assignment from Carsten Bradley for his daily Artist Sketch Challenge: DESIGN THE POSTER FOR CALVIN & HOBBES: THE MOVIE! Carsten set the standard with his entry, and everybody did such great drawings/concepts, it really raised the bar. I loved working on this. Spent too much time on it...and wish I had more. Check out all the posters at Google+! I thought I'd happened upon an original parody idea, but - nope! There's some fan fiction pairing these characters, and another: What I Did On My Summer Vacation (scroll down). And a Comic Rumble. Enjoy!

Google+ Artist Sketch Challenge: Week 2

Following Monday's Penguin Moon, I did more for Carsten Bradley's daily Artist Sketch Challenge this week, joining in 4/5 days. Not just two like last week; no tardy entries! And I made all my work deadlines.

From Stunt Chefs.

 

Water Rabbit, from Your Chinese Zodiac Sign & Element.

Day Tripper, from Literal Interpretations of Hit Songs.

Just for grins, here's my quick rough for the sketch, which I also inked in Manga Studio, then did quick color in Photoshop. This was a fun one, drawing the first idea that popped in my head. I used no reference for Lennon.

Check in to view the funny and clever drawings, or if you're so inclined jump in and do some yourself! It's easy - just Circle Carsten, post your drawing on your G+ page/album, adding +Carsten Bradley to your text and he'll add your entry to the blog. C'mon - the more the merrier. I can't wait for next week!

Google+ Artist Sketch Challenge

Where the Rainbow Ends creator Carsten Bradley kicked off this daily Artist Sketch Challenge on Google+ this week, tossing out one-of-a-kind weird and wacky themes for artists to go crazy with. I was so busy with work and family I didn't get to my two entries til Friday/Saturday, but gosh, they were fun to do!

From Cartoon Characters as Sea Creatures.

 

From Unsuccessful Monster Cereals.

I'm stumbling my way through learning  demo versions of Manga Studio and Sketchbook Pro the last ten days, still getting my bearings. I drew both of these in Manga Studio, but colored them in Photoshop, where I'm yet more comfy and familiar.

I'll be joining in the daily challenge as time allows and inspiration dictates. Carsten has a doozy of an idea for Monday he announced Saturday morning, so there should be plenty of offerings awaiting us all Monday morn. My take on it came to me in minutes.
