Just Realised

How inaccurate this blog header is. "Daily drawings"? When's the last time I posted anything?
Maybe I should post daily again. Doesn't have to be good drawings, right? I mean I have a camera phone and a Blogger app, there's really no excuse.....

February: Day 29!


Hooray! A whole month of daily drawings, of varying quality.  Wish I’d picked a year where February didn’t have 29 days :/

Now, for someone who calls himself an animator, I should be doing several sketches - or even pages of sketches - every day, regardless of how many I upload.  But I really did struggle with getting these done regularly; I could come out with all these excuses about kids and housework and cooking and all the other things I have to take care of as well as drawing, but I think the real problem I have is laziness!

Finally, My friends Chris and Helen are getting married today (actually, they probably are by now); I couldn’t attend the ceremony but I hope they had a great day!

February: Day 28


Oh look! It’s a... er... yeah, I have no idea what it’s meant to be.

February: Day 27


Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles was my favourite cartoon as a little kid... so yeah, why wouldn’t I want do draw a fucked-up shitty version of one of the main characters??

February: Day 26


Another Mike suggestion: “Bob stealing stuff” (Bob is a character from his webcomic, Steve & Bob

Saturday, 25 February 2012

February: Day 25


Mike suggested that I draw “at least 3 characters from Misfits”, but I had enough trouble trying to get make this look anything like Nathan, so all you get is Nathan.

February: Day 22


Spent a long time online last night looking up all the crazy monsters in Resident Evil, so I decided to draw a classic: the Licker

Tuesday, 21 February 2012

February: Day 21


Just... couldn’t be arsed.

Monday, 20 February 2012

February: Day 20


Another Mike classic:  “Super Ash Kart”

Sunday, 19 February 2012

February: Day 19


Mattkind suggested his character, Lil Gina, the “lame witch”

Saturday, 18 February 2012

February: Day 18


Mike’s suggestion: “Kryten from Red Dwarf wearing a hat (try and imagine such a thing!)”

For you see, rather recently, Mike and I went to see an episode of the new series of Red Dwarf being filmed!  And lo, in that episode Kryten did verily wear a hat.

Not a hat as shit as this mind you.

February: Day 17


Didn’t know what to draw today, so.... gunfist.

Thursday, 16 February 2012

February: Day 16


Suggestion from Timothy: “The Grim Reaper in a bikini”

Wednesday, 15 February 2012

February: Day 15


Alex had another suggestion for me - that I draw this character, “Freckle”.  He knows that I dislike that comic.  Git.

Obviously I had to guess what colour he might be...

February: Day 14


Happy Valentine’s day!  Only to my fiance though.  The rest of you can fuck off.

I know, late uploading again, but I was to busy being loved up yesterday!

February: Day 13


“Mario & Luigi holding hands”

Mike suggested it, but this is probably not what he had in mind :3

Sunday, 12 February 2012

February: Day 12


Super late posting this one, Kei had a lot of work to do last night so I didn’t have time.

No suggestions today, just your average angry dog smoking a cigar.

Saturday, 11 February 2012

February: Day 11


“A duel between a cotton bud and a chocolate covered finger.”

I should probably stop drawing Mike’s suggestions.

Friday, 10 February 2012

February: Day 10


“An aeroplane with lady legs”

Oh Mike....

Thursday, 9 February 2012

February: Day 9


Another gem from Mike: “A duel between a hippogriff and a cow with a human face”.

Seriously man, get help

Wednesday, 8 February 2012

February: Day 8


Bit late uploading this one!  Had a busy day, between taking the baby for his injections, dealing with the grumpy consequences later, and Kei coming home with a cold! 

Missus Patches suggested “any character from The Adventures of Tintin”, so I picked Captain Haddock, the only character I could vaguely stand.

(NB: changed the date on this post to 8/2/12, even though it’s gone midnight, just to keep the posts organised!)

February: Day 7


Alex very cheekily suggested I draw “A homosexual”. So with that I drew Alan Carr. 

Sorry Alan.

Monday, 6 February 2012

February: Day 6


Leigh very unkindly suggested that I draw “Gogeta”, a character from the awful Dragonball series, which is poor both as a manga and an anime.

Sunday, 5 February 2012

February: Day 5


Another stellar suggestion from Mike: “A space cat (with fishbowl head and everything)”

Saturday, 4 February 2012

February: Day 4


Suggestion from Krystal: “A fat knight in a small suit of armour.”

Friday, 3 February 2012

February: Day 3


Yet another mentile suggestion from Mike: “A woman wearing bras. Lots of bras.”

Also: colour?  Well, turns out lots of other people have decided to do a drawing a day in February, by which I mean A FULLY FINISHED ILLUSTRATION.  And it’s making me look fucking stupid.  Also, the last pencil drawing I tried to scan came out all faint and crappy, so this is drawn in Photoshop.  MAD WACOM SKILLZ YO.

Promise tomorrow’s drawing will be a suggestion from someone else!

February: Day 2

2012-02-02 copy

Another bizarre suggestion from Mike: “Superman with a living cat’s head sewn on to his shoulder”.  Get help Mike.

February: Day 1

2012-02-01 copy

“Aquaman not doing very much”, as suggested by Mike....


I did decide that I’d be starting my month of daily sketches today (and announced it on deviantART), but I have another post to make first. 

So here’s the thing: when I was doing the daily sketches last time, I was aiming for at least a year’s worth, but I wasn’t keeping count as I drew; it was only when it came to uploading them on the blog that I assigned them a number, and knew how many days along I was.  When it came to February, I knew I’d done a year, but because I was behind in scanning them I didn’t know exactly where to stop... thus, I overshot the mark a little.  Here are those other sketches!


The girl in the middle is meant to be Black Canary; I thought the drawing in general was ok but the face I couldn’t get right.  I still hate it.  The guy in the bottom right corner is a member of Special Judicial Squad, from the Judge Dredd comic (very hard to find reference for those guys...); the guy next to him is Green Arrow, one of the crappest superheroes ever conceived.  Can you tell that I was struggling for ideas at this point?  Oh, and you know how I’m fond of drawing rubbish visual puns, like Fighter Pilot and Cricket Bat?  Well in this image there is a truck.  Full of monsters.  I even labelled it for you.  I think the rest is self-explanatory!

Year One

That’s it!  I’ve finally scanned and uploaded a year’s worth of daily drawings.  I was surprised to realise that I stopped scanning/uploading them in January last year, and didn’t get around to finishing until NOW... in my mind, it was only a few weeks ago Confused smile


So yeah, I’m gonna leave the daily drawing thing alone for a while; mainly because scanning them, resizing them, cropping them, adjusting the levels, and saving them with the appropriate file names, and then making each of them into a blog post and uploading them.... is a colossal pain in the arse.  Also, I got a 3DS for my birthday and Resident Evil: Revelations yesterday, so.... screw you art!

For now Smile with tongue out


(Seriously though, I will continue putting up art at AutoCorrect and deviantART, and will maybe do daily drawings for a month here or there.... I need to keep practicing don’t I?

364 - Judge Dredd III

22-01-11 copy

I’ve had a look and this is the third Judge Dredd drawing that I’ve put up here (that I’m aware of).  He’s so much fun to draw!
