Day 63: Sooner or later, I'd get around to the Dark Knight. Batman has been a solid favourite my entire life, partly due to the series "Batman: The Animated Series", which is still to this day the best incarnation of the franchise on film. End of story, no arguments. Sure, the Dark Knight was a good movie, but it's not a solid Batman. I don't think they can make a Batman movie to please my idea of Batman.
This sketch isn't as solid as I could create, but I didn't feel like spending hours on a Batman face today. Maybe sometime in the future.

Day 62: Inspired directly from Winsor McKay's "Little Nemo" cartoon strips from 1905 - 1911. Winsor McKay is the godfather of animation. He was able to produce fabulous animated features from hand, without the use of a light table or clear paper. He was a genius, and is worth studying.
Labels: Winsor McKay Little Nemo
Day 61: This guy's inspired by the fat business man in the Radiohead "Paranoid Andriod" music video. Eventually the guy is seen in a black metal studded thong.....it's a good video to say the least.
Day 60: This belongs in the "Mutts" cartoon. Charles Schulz even says this series is "one of best comic strips of all time."
Day 59: I'm slowly but surely starting to get a hold of my personal colour wheel. Colours that balance and compliment one another. I'm not sure of the technical term, which I studied at one point in time, but these colours seem to blend fairly well. Too bad I prefer black and white artwork.
Inspired subconsciously by Popeye's Father, Pappy.

Day 48: This guy is a nerd, geek, dweeb, all around dork. He looks great. The mouth took me awhile, not that it was difficult to draw, but I couldn't settle on a mouth to keep. The original mouth was more elaborate, but I've done it so many times before that I decided on this simple answer. Enjoy.

Day 47: I'll express inspiration from Stanley Donwood yet again for this image, that is almost lifted from Thom Yorke's "The Eraser" album cover. I still believe it's one of the best cover's I've ever witnessed. I really wish I could afford the $400 bucks to get a signed print of it, but I guess some luxuries will come later in life.

Day 46: My attempt at a more realistic cartoon. Someday I'll draw something I'm really proud of, but for now you'll just have to deal with what I'm doing. I have a hard time sitting down for hours and drawing. I have to spend at least an hour on faces if I want to produce anything worthwhile. This past month has been a difficult month, to say the least.

Day 44: Here's a curveball for you. I don't personally know exactly what it meant, so here it is, for what it's worth. I can tell you I really like the Easter Island statues, and it's inspired some work before. I've added the red because it compliments the black so very perfectly.
