Sketchy XXXIV

…when in doubt always draw a pile of skulls…

…or a blocktopus….

…and before you dot your eyes, cross your flys…..

Sketchy XXXI

…top is more snailtopusses (ammonites if you will)…

…bottom is idea that is currently getting a test paint in paintbook (wallpaper rolls already sourced)….

…and some sort of Ferris Wheel whose origins and purpose escape me….did seek out a youtube tutorial to do wire framing for the skeletons and made a couple….one of which ended up in that snow globe thing I did a few months back…

…(must make some more)…

Sketchy XXX

….every time I use “Phil McAndrew’s Big List Of Stuff To Draw”….

…it leads to something “worthwhile”….

…and, yes, I know they are ammonites….

…just kinda liked the name “snailtopusses” better….

…(have also just realised the implications of “Sketchy XXX” as a title for this post and can assure you there is nothing of that nature here)….

Reason To Celebrate

…or “Octopied 37” if you’d prefer…

…today is the 9th anniversary of my starting to contribute to the WordPress blogiverse…

…so rather than another two pages of 4/8 colour pen scrawl from last year…

…here’s the latest piece I’ve finished….

….this has been sitting, incomplete for over a year!…

…I think my return to nightshift has given me the motivation to get back to making lots of stuff…

…brace yourselves….

Sketchy XXII

…so I’ve quit my day job…

…and been kinda headhunted back to the night shift I left 6 months ago…

…so I guess I’ll be able to make more stuff like…..

…and…

….ahhhh…sitting up all night drawing skulls and crossbones and octopuses over and over again…

….yep….

…(now…where’s that eight colour pen)….

Paintbook 31

…so the rule was….

…outline in the red, filler in orange, “suckers” in lighter orange, outline in yellow….

…then, green, blue, indigo, and purple…

…all seven colours in order…

….(I’d imagine I’ll be aiming for seven of these all starting with the next colour outlines and proceeding thru the spectrum as I usually do)….
