Crazy Couple and Their Dog

A very festive couple in the Mardi Gras parade.  She is sporting a pink boa which matches her hair, and a mask.  He is dressed, I believe, as a crawfish.  The doog looks like he is trying to look like he's not with them.

Sword Woman

I decided it was time to try something more geeky, so I tried to draw a lady samurai.  She turned ok ok, not great but not too bad.  The sword got a little wonky.  Overall I think it turned out alright, but I'm hoping the next one turns out better.

Hooded Figure

A hooded figure walking a a crowded sunny street.  Not an image you see every day.  Actually this guy was part of a group of larpers who were taking part in a parade.  I thought his costume was pretty cool.

Relaxing

This one turned out pretty good.  The chair is a little weird but the woman isn't bad.  I don't know who relaxes in a bustier, but hey it's my drawing...

Having A Lovely Time

The guy on the right looks like he's just having the best time ever.  He just cracked me up.  The rest of the picture is not very interesting, but he makes the whole thing work for me.

Mobster Gal

It's probably just the hat, but for some reason when I finished this I thought she looked like a female version of a mobster.  I think this one turned out alright, more comic booky than cartoony.  As a life long fan of comics I am okay with that.

Have Some Beads

Caught this guy in mid-toss.  The fact that he's got this super fancy mask on and then just a regular shirt and jeans cracks me up.

Anticipation

She is excited and nervous at the same time.  What was about to be done to her?  She didn't know and she had to admit that it was thrilling.

Happy Face


She looks like she's laughing at a joke she just remembered.  It's nice to see people smile.  Especially if they don't know that someone is looking.

Ahhhhh!


I like this one.  I think it turned out really well.  I like how it is open to interpretation. Is she gasping in shock or surprise?  Is she moaning in pleasure?  Does she have a toothache?  You decide!

Groovy In Green

I like this outfit.  It reminds me of a jester suit, but updated.  I also like masks and capes, but that may just be the geek in me.

DJ Baby Groot

Baby Groot spinning mad beats yo.  Isn't that how the kids put it?  If you are a fan of the movies you probably know what scene I was copying on this, replacing an explosive device with a turn table.  I should have had his finger on the record I guess, I don't really know how being a DJ works.

Gettin' Down

This lady was dancing to the tunes coming from a nearby portable cd player.  She should have hooked up with the dog from my other pic.  She was cutting loose and having fun and didn't care who was watching, which is the only way to live in my opinion.

Young Lady

It's not a great title for the post, but hey I'm tired and it's been a long day.  So back off, okay?  Geez.  Anyhoo, some of the few corrections I made are still very visible, but overall for a quick sketch I thought this one turned out okay.  Someday I hope to get enough free time that I can sit down and really take my time with something, but I don't see that happening anytime soon, so you'll continue to be subjected to sketches drawn from pictures that catch my eye.

Floating Wizard


Okay, so I know he's just a larper, but look at his feet guys.  HIS FEET ARE TOTALLY NOT TOUCHING THE GROUND!!!  He's walking on air.  Burn him!!! Kill him with fire!! He's a witch I tells ya!  Anyway, this dude is a larper who was in a parade and the camera caught him at just the right instant to catch this fun pic.  Oh, and if you see this man, please don't hurt him.  I was onlhy playing earlier.  I shouldn't have to say that, but people are crazy, so...
