#20 Vampires

Screw you guys! We need a new topic and with Twilight around, we need to draw some vampires. Festive vampires! Add Santa hats and snow! Extra points for Twilight references because that's hilarious. And no bitching, because I've never posted a topic before and I wanna draw some vampires.

This took a while and I changed my idea a thousand times, so sorry for the erase lines that are everywhere. Anyway, I think it's pretty self-explanatory. Angel has no purpose there other than to grimace at the sparkles.

Why am I the first to post so often? Sheesh guys ;P
Sooo I haven't actually seen Twilight. The only things I've heard about it are from guys, and some internet sources.
So here is a generic teenage vampire trying to be sexy, brooding, and sparkly (who ended up looking a little like Zac Efron).

*EDIT* ...I just made it even more sparkly after re-discovering some gel pens of mine. It's kind of a million times more sparkly and you guys will have to see it in person
BONUS! My first, rejected version:

Post number whatever, we're reviving this thing....HARRY POTTER

Seriously, guys. This is so easy. Every single one of us has read through the entire series at least three times, right? Right? I know it's not just me. it?

Blast ended skrewt, armless Harry. I don't know why, but I seem to draw HP characters armlessly a lot. You should see all the sketches I did when I was drawing HP characters for this. It's like an arm massacre hit Hogwarts.

Yay! Luna is the best. I totally faked my way through The Quibbler, but that's cool. She looks very content.

Sorry that my post is lacking in gay.

BTW, anyone remember how we let more people post? Sarah Ann would like to be added!


Welp, I am probably the only one who is going to do something like this (unless you guys prove me wrong). So here you go. I also may do more. I used to draw Harry Potter fanart a lot, actually, haha.
Sometime we've gotta do Lord of the RIngs as our topic. We can start covering even more of our nerd bases!

WHAT? Speaking of Zac Efron and EPIC FAIL, this is my contribution to this wonderful new topic! (I need to color this!)


So sad...

*EDIT* I have something to contribute!
Had it in my head all day and it needed to get out. Hopefully you can all tell who is who?

#18 Star Wars

This week is the week of The Force Unleashed, and as much as I swear that I'll never be able to muster enthusiasm for anything Star Wars after the prequels and that god-awful Clone Wars movie-advertisement (new one, not Genndy's -- that was amazing), I find myself counting the days to Tuesday when I get to force-push stormtroopers through blast-doors and fling Tie-Fighters down onto platoons of rebel scum (soooooo many hyphens with Star Wars... gee whiz).

Thus the topic this week will be Star Wars.  Draw whatever you want.  And I'm going to do one of those "post damn you" guilt trip things again, because honestly anything you throw up here will be better than what's come out of Lucasfilm in the past 10 years.  Take back the night, kiddos.

I had to give it another go. I tried to see how many things I could draw from the original trilogy without looking up pictures. I can actually remember more than I can draw. Emily

Yay star wars! I feel like I can do better than this. My spaceship drawing ability has really dropped off since high school though! It's so sad! The more I look at this, the less I like it. Hrm - Emily

#17 Organ Grinders

That's all.

I wanted to color it but didn't have time. Where are the flying organs coming from? Who knows! - Emily

I've been drawing lots of lonely old men with pet monkeys since I posted this topic, but this one is way more fun.


Ok, here's one. I hate the scanner in the lab. It makes colors all wonky. I also put up some gangsters. I draw too many zombies for school to actually do that one any time soon.

#16 Gangsters

This one is easy for at least three of us, because Lauren, Carder, and I spent an afternoon the other day drawing a bunch of 'em and watching Flapjack. Have at it.

Two gangsters and a flapper. The gangster with the flapper was an afterthought. The first picture was destroyed by the scanner so I had to do some creative level adjustments. F that.

I combined the last two topics. But my zombie is pretty spritely, I suppose.

Yeahh I'm just posting the ones I already drew, like Victor. So here's my gangster. And bonus policeman!

I will post more if and when, but honestly I think it's desperate measures for desperate times in regards to the blog, so I'm just going to post these guys that I already drew.

#15 Zombies

Since no one seems to be able to do Indy, let's move on to a nice, generic yet open to creativity topic. Plus, everyone seems to be drawing zombies all the time anyways :P

Here is a zombie with a missing eye and no jawbone :P. I drew him a while ago and recently cleaned him up, but never posted him for some reason.

Take that group blog!!!!!!!!!!!

Hrm... Number What? 14!

I'm thinking some Lucasarts/film action this week. How's about either Indiana Jones or Monkey Island? Does anybody else want to weigh in, 'cause I could go either way.


UPDATE: Alright you peoples -- vote's in (all two of you) and Monkey Island is toast. The topic shall be...

Indiana Jones & the (?)

Fill in the blank and draw your picture accordingly. Caveat: It is OK to use existing canonical (or not) subtitles if you just want to draw your favorite moment from a movie, extended universe, slash-fiction, or whatever

Well, the concept of trying to be witty and come up with something froze me up.

#13 BATMAN and Lauren

Holy blogger, Batman! This topic should be pretty self explanatory. If you don't know who Batman is, you're an idiot. And if you don't know who Lauren is, you're probably not posting on this blog. <-- apparently that was too harsh. The topic of the week, young animajors, is The Batman. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. Also, Lauren. Both because I felt weird making the topic about me (Emily) and also because Batman and Lauren allllmost sounds like Batman and Robin. A little. Because they both end in an "nnn" sound. Have at it.

Heyyyy look at me, I'm catching up! I've never drawn Batman before, and this is probably the weirdest Batman drawing. Whose hand is that, God's? I have no idea. And I WOULD blame Shawn for the cute. But that would be a lie, considering I secretly (or not-so-secretly) like cute things, too.

This is Lauren doing what I can only assume is her daily pastime (making rainbows). And it's lineless! That was a weird thing to try. And then, here's a little Batman I doodled a few weeks ago. I scruffed it up because Batman's supposed to be all hard core and shit. -Shawn

PS: My birthday's on Saturday! Woo! 23!

Here's my batman drawing. I'm not really sure where the red idea came from but it's kinda cool. Enjoy ~ Bryan

Here we go. Batman and Cat Lauren. Sorry they're just crappy sketches. Drawing Batman requires too much energy from me, and Lauren was a moment of inspiration that kind of rips off Victor...only Lauren might actually be a furry. - Carder

I think my batman is a bit of a cop out. But whatever - I liked his expression.

So, a little background: Batman is like my drawing kryptonite. Fewer subjects bring out worse drawings for me than Batman. Seriously, I have sketchbooks full of bad Batman drawings, so just ignore Batman here, because I only put him in to satisfy the topic. The real action is in the Carrie Kelly / Lauren Blakely Robin. I like it.*

Here are some other doodles inspired by the topic too. One's kind of a study for the drawing above. The other's just a really peeved Lauren. She's probably had enough of my nonsense and is about to disembowel me with her hate-stare.*

Now I feel like I have to draw Andrew. To Andrew: I just haven't come up with any good ideas yet. -- Victor

*Sometimes I annoy myself. Luckily I can edit my self-deprecating drivel out of my posts whenever I see fit.

#12 Heavenly Bodies...and Andrew

Ok so after that midnight screening, this week's topic is Heavenly Bodies (or, 80s aerobics). Awesome.

Also the animation major to draw is Andrew since he leaves after this week and should see everyone's interpretation of him.

If you haven't posted your Alien, shame on you.

BTW - to the people who just recently started posting, we've been using italics for our captions. I'm easily confused and so that clarifies things. Thanks. Emily.

I hit two birds with one stone... I present Andrew as I imagine he would have looked if he were in the movie "Heavenly Bodies." I'll have my fully finished alien posted soon.
enjoy ~ Bryan

I was inspired by going to that photo booth place. I love sparkles. -Emily

So I didn't want to post this because there is literally nothing I like about it, but I won't be called a hypocrite. At least not yet. I can't draw today. I can't even play video games well today. Maybe I'll upload a better one later. Probably not. Andrew: I'll see if I can't bust out a likeness tomorrow, but if I don't, you always have the graduation one!

Here's some more aerobics action, folks.

Here are mine! Sorry they're not in color (aside from the color overlays). The first drawing is of Andrew proposing to Kristen Wiig (as Target lady). The engagement ring has the signature terrrrget circles on it.

Also, here's my aerobics woman, who is working up a sweat. Look at that vagine, it's a HUGE vagine!

And there you have it. I don't know if I am going to actually do an alien or not.

This is based on Andrew's facebook profile picture, which I find delightful. This was a little photoshop experimenting that got out of hand, but hey, it looks like Andrew! Woo! Andrew, if you cry, I'll have to punch you in the kidneys or whatever. Also, this is repayment for all the gas I probably owe you for driving me around. (Cosmic balance is restored!) -shawn

Soooo, I'm behind on the last post, so I decide to combine forces. Two 80's icons, the aerobics goddess and the Alien, collide in a horrific display. I do not want to be standing behind her at my next aerobics class. Heavenly body she is not.

And since I LOVE drawing them sexy ladies so much, here's an actual heavenly body. She's a perky one...

Consider that last one me. And, Emily. I've never seen a more accurate representation of me. Uncanny. Now where's everyone else's??


My shockingly accurate drawing of Andrew. Basically, I'm finding that I can't draw people I know. So I just draw their cloths and hair and hope for the best. I'll get to Heavenly Bodies soon - Emily

I suppose it's easier to add the pictures above the lead-in paragraph, eh? Anyhow, this is just an insurance policy, so that if I don't post anything more interesting or finished, I at least won't catch any flak from the Carder front. He loves to remind me of my rant a few months ago where I encouraged posting anything, even half-baked sketches and napkin doodles. So here you go:

#11ish CARDER

Everybody! Start watching the Aliens topic below! Warning: This isn't the new topic anymore! (But you can still post, it just won't have the hilarious Carder-has-no-idea aspect.) -Shawn

Thanks for all the help and the graduation pictures of us Carder! It's your turn - we made a stealth topic!

Here's my version of Carder. When I thought of how I would draw him this pose came into mind instantly...don't know just did. Also...I put him in the hipster sweater that shawn loves oh-so much as well. I think the proportions might be a bit off on this one...and he kinda ended up exuding the aura of a Bishounen from some Yaoi manga (sorry Carder) hahaha...oh well.     ~Kyle

And just for fun...and cause I wanted to draw something's Carder in chibi form as well. Don't ask me why he's holding up his finger...I don't know myself, my hand just drew it and I went with it...I like it though.  =P     ~Kyle

Honestly, I was just going to draw a picture of a duck and call it a day, but then I figured I should put in more effort. Here's my version of Carder. Enjoy!
- Bryan

All of these are so amazing, you guys. Drawing your friends retardedly is THE BEST!!
My version of Carder looks a little girly but that's okay. Not as much as Andrew's ;D. Thanks a lot, guys, you pressured me into wanting to do color too, so I did a rushed coloring job.

It's Carder....the World's Greatest Soccer Mom!!! Observe how well he multi-tasks. Man, I wish Carder was my soccer mom from the 90s.

In other news, these gel pens are fun! You guys should try them.

In OTHER other news: Carder, I wanna see my caricature!!


If only the others knew what I know...

P.S. Awesome likeness, Lauren.
*errrr... Shawn. What's up with the Lauren drawing? Believe it or not, that comment didn't sit well with me at all after I wrote it, so I've been neurotically checking back for somebody to correct me ever since. Wooo!!! By the by, Carder is playing video games on my couch right now and has no idea about any of this yet. Heh heh...

It's Shawn! Not Lauren. Damn, I should've signed my name earlier. -Shawn

This is a picture of Carder in my favorite Carder-hipster-sweater. I was thinking about adding a unicorn or some rainbows in the background to spice things up :D. -Shawn

Perhaps what he'll look like post-senior thesis? When I first drew him, it looked like the child of Lauren and Carder. -Emily
