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:
