Sketchy Stuff... @ 01:07 pm

I haven't posted any of my warm-up sketches, recently. Sorry about that.

Here's yesterday's. I like it enough that I've started turning the idea into a proper print.

CINDY-LOU WHO, The Doctor Who's No More Than Two:

Super Happy Doctor Cindy Lou Fun Hour



As always, if you'd like the originals of these sketches, they're $45, postage included. Add $5 for overseas shipping. Paypal gladly accepted.

SPEAKING OF SKETCHING...

As is often the case, I think the sketch I did of Matt Smith for Monday's cartoon turned out better than the actual finished drawing. I believe other cartoonists know the frustration of this, when it happens. I've got no idea how the Doctor's cowlick grew to such proportions on the final, but there you go...

By the way, as happy as I was with how the original sketch turned out, you have NO IDEA how hard it is to find photos of Matt Smith in profile! Seriously. I think I came up with about two, out of 100 Matt Smith pics overall.

Super Happy Doctor Cowlick Fun Hour



How it turned out (good...but not AS good, I feel).

Super Happy Doctor Who Fun Hour



Anyway, I still love the first sketch of Matt. I'm no great caricaturist, so those few times I think to myself that I've managed to capture something, I'm happy.

Possibly I'll turn the sketch into a larger painting - albeit a stylized one - or a print, as well.

But I have a sketch now. Sketches are cool.

With the scarf, she looks more like Four than Two. (rimshot)

May I ask what the hidden meaning behind the 16 in the armchair is?

None, it's an edge and a swirl.

But why isn't it there on the next panel, then?

Option 1: Artist goof.

Option 2: He's pulling the chair around to face the TV.

Yes - artist goof. I'd meant to take that out...
