An update to get that Skyrim one off the top of the page

Just finished this for DSPR. I'm not quire sure how Rob feels about me posting it here before he's written a post to accompany it over HERE, but I'm going to assume it's fine.

Rob came up with this idea, by the way. And if you have no clue what's going on, then you haven't seen this:

But now you have. Luckily, my blog doesn't have like 150,000 readers so nobody will know it was here first.

EDIT: 164,833 readers.

The Shout of Music

SOME SAY that I have too much free time, and that I waste it making pictures like this.

It's Skyrim-related, and if you don't get it I'm very disappointed in you. Especially Lisa.
But especially Bart.

On Doing Better

All my drawings up to this point have been flat and two-dimensional. Not in the witty I'm-joking-because-they're-pictures way, but in the way that they lack a sense of physical depth to the scene. It really pisses me off, and is one of the reasons I start disliking most of them as soon as they're finished. Today's (actually Tuesday's) drawing is my first real attempt at breaking out of that 2D habit I have. That and the other habit of drawing only the subject and background. I tried to make this more visually appealing by showing more happening than somebody/thing just standing there, and I think I did that.

In my mind, this is the first step in the journey out of The Gap.

Every day I'm bufferin'

Drawing of a joke between my brother and I from years ago. 

I can't remember why we were watching F1 speed boating. We were probably bored.

Moose Viking

Jess tells me that there are moose in Sweden, but she hasn't seen any. So naturally that resulted in a request for a drawing of a Viking riding one.

I wanted to do a Frazetta kind of style for this, but that would take eight million hours to do properly, so I opted for a cartoony sort of Frazetta.
Still not sure how finished this is. I'm only now just noticing how tiny the Viking is compared to the moose. But that's okay; a giant moose is an awesome moose. The background should probably be more than just some colours. However, adding more background definition would require time and effort, and I am tired.

Exeunt Scott.

The Thrawn Stratagem

I've been devouring the Thrawn Trilogy recently. What's that you say? You've never heard of it? IRRELEVANT! It is SUPER GOOD and I strongly suggest you read it.
But we both know you won't, since it's a Star Wars series. You probably wouldn't even if you already had a copy because I gave it to you on like Friday, Joel, stop hosting so many goddamn trivia nights and then maybe you will have time.

"SCOTT," you may shout at me, startling me and causing me to spill tea on my pants because how the hell did you get inside my house. "what is this turning into, some kind of Star Wars drawings blog?!" you may continue to yell.
"SHUT UP." I would defensively reply. "How could you complain when you have that rad depiction of a ysalamir sitting on Thrawn's shoulders?"

No. NOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo!!!

This just makes me unhappy. Why must he torture these films so?

It's obvious when you look at it that I threw this together really quickly. Longform things like this just stare me in the face shouting "THIS WILL TAKE HOURS", so I kinda half-assed this one.



Request from Andrew. DONE.

Irrelevant Blog Title #70

I did this sketch of a friend while literally watching paint dry in class the other day. It has been digitised for your viewing pleasure.

And here's a less interestingly coloured version, for the less adventurous of you.
Also, I made a placeholder official kind of website at

Che Guevackbar

Drew this a few weeks ago. I refrained from uploading it since this is exactly the kind of picture the internet loves to steal and sell on t-shirts. As it turns out, this isn't considered parody-ish enough and you'd get in trouble with people who have official-sounding job titles. No shirts for you!

However, I get one.

Unlike women on Facebook, I'm not so good at aiming the camera at myself (this was the best of three photos), so enjoy this off-centre image. With extra beard.

Finished anyway

Imagine him with a gravely Spanish accent.
"Ello. Iyam Antonio Tortorosa."

Theirs has a stupid name

Well crap.
I was browsing through old stuff and decided I'd do a proper drawing of Antonio Tortorosa. You may (you don't) remember him from a quick doodle a few years ago I got this far:

...before I thought of seeing if anybody else has had a similar idea. You know, musketeer tortoise kind of thing.
Turns out somebody at Hanna-Barbera had a almost identical idea FIFTY DAMN YEARS AGO. I envisioned mine as more of a Zorro character than those goofy ones they used to make. The plan was to make a single out-of-context page of a comic which doesn't exist, depicting him going about some heroic adventure. After this discovery I'm somewhat less enthusiastic about the idea.
If I discover that Fishbear looks exactly like a cave painting from 40,000 years ago, it's Hulk-rampage time. Or clobberin' time, I'll decide when the time comes.

Praises for the lazy


Get it? Get it?? ClasSCI-FIeds?! Goodness I'm clever.

Normally when I'm drawing I'll be listening to a podcast or something, and putting together an all-text image gets very confusing when you're trying to concentrate on a conversation. That is my official excuse for any and all mistakes you may or may not find in today's picture, which is another magnificent writing collaboration with one Cousin Joel. Many laughs are had between these back and forth calls, and I thoroughly enjoy them. I suggest you go call him right now and demand he entertain you.

This picture is pretty nerdy and not all of you are going to get every reference, but if you enjoy at least five I think we've succeeded.

Ahahh. Ohhh man. I noticed the mistake. I wrote Monday 19th of July.
Today is Tuesday 19th.
And I'm not going to fix it.

More internet-inspired drawing

I say inspired, but what I made for this one is essentially a reproduction. Or not. Probably not. You be the judge.

Helloooooo new desktop.

Makes me want to ride a bicycle

After I read this brilliant comment, I immediately went to drawing a picture to accompany it. Turned out pretty well!

Building computers is fun, after all.

Magnificent quantities

Just a quick Doctor Who thing.
Very quick.

The Trickster

Note: The Trickster is not an alien.
Meanwhile, this song has been stuck in my head for days, and I was listening to it on repeat when I drew this. So, you know. Listen to that.

He never learned how

I still haven't finished it. No spoilers, people!

Analogue Paint

So, this happened.

Which I thought was awesome enough to warrant a reproduction.
Threw this together yesterday afternoon and scanned at tafe today. Painting it was good practice. Now, off to do MORE practice!

More quick things! MORE!

And by more, I mean one.

The waiting game sucks, let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos

I've been SUPER BUSY with tafe and haven't had much time to do any digital artwork except for this one quick thing last week.

I may take a few photos of the paintings/charcoal drawings I've been doing and upload them if there's any interest.

More sand! MORE!

Click to embiggen.
This one took many hours, because I just made it up as I went along. That's a bad and slow way to draw things.
You can thank my friend - your new friend - Ross for the sky's colour pallet and general cloud structure, since I tried to replicate what I saw in one of his photos (because he's a wicked photographer). I happen to think it isn't too far off. Possibly relied too heavily on gradients, though.
Also there's a new post over at Cousin Joel's XTD further examining the Hilariosity-Ridiculosity Curve and it's rather good. Do check it out! And since this post seems to be link-heavy, here's one more.

C'est un piège!

The part that took the longest was choosing a font.

Stupid fonts.

Those Magnificent Men In Their Fantastic Glowing Machines

How great was Tron Legacy? I assume everybody has seen it now.
As soon as I drew the guy in the alleyway with a coat, I knew he needed a fedora. Like some kind of noir tron thing.

Star Wars Magazines part 5

The first post for 2011 is an all-new Star Wars Magazine! Similar to Part 4, if you're a massive Star Wars nerd you'll get a lot more enjoyment out of this than those regular people, with their regular interests. The text was once again a back-and-forth collaboration with the ever-cleverer Cousin Joel, and you can find the reference image right here. My attempts without a reference image have been disasterous in almost all cases, and no, Teagan - you wouldn't 'like them anyway'.

This is not the end of Star Wars Magazines! I'll get you next time, Gadget, etc.
