Don’t you just love cheesy old sci-fi flicks? They’re so wonderfully fun, unbelievably kitch… the acting, by some standards, rather deplorable (or simply brilliant, depending on your perspective). Anyhow, the little buy came first, with the little ufo on a string coming next, after his expression came clear.
So, its another short post for today (I’ll blame the fact that its the weekend again, shall I?).
Just a quick one this evening… I have named him Bobbles. He was drawn yesterday between editing the formatting for scripted scenes. This assignment was fairly interesting to do: one scene, presented as a script in three different genres. I decided to do comedy, mockumentary, and erotica. ‘Why, Kat?’ you ask? Because the scenario worked for all three, because I needed a good chuckle, and lord help me the lecturer said she was up for anything. Lets test that theory, shall we? Don’t worry, I did actually run it by her before going ahead with it. She loved the idea.
Phew! Only three more assignments to go. Only, I say? Hardly. But its just so much easier to try and think of it as ‘only’ rather than ‘ok, the ‘easy’ ones are over and done with, now for the big, bad, nasty ones’. The first description has a much better ring to it, yes?
Mmmm… marketing. A facinating subject, further enhanced by the sketching of faceless faces during the course of a class. Shh, don’t tell my lecturer.
For some odd reason, these little guys appeal to me. They’re cute and cuddley… adorable even. Ok, perhaps not, but that is how much I am loving them at the moment… there is something just wonderful about simplicity, about, just, nothing much in particular – a few scribbled line to describe something that can be roughly thought of as a head, or the start of a figure…
I find it weird, that for me, just a thirty second sketch (the lot of them took more than that, but the individual ones were done incredibly quickly) suggests so much. I’m not sure if it is because I’m the one drawing them, that I get some special insight… get to see these little glimmers of mischevious personality poking through at the edges that others don’t… but to me they are just a joy to draw. These little guys are just so full of fun. So, you all enjoy them… I have to go and give my husband a noogie.
Not the greatest sketch in the world, but I feel that I’d best throw at least -something- up here to show that I’ve been doing something… As I’ve said before, I hate profiles… its far from perfect, but I can deal with that… at least each kinda-not-quite-right gets closer to the kinda-getting-closer-to-being-quite-right, the way it should be.
It was just a picture of the head to begin with… I’m not quite sure what compelled me to go ‘this image can only be best completed with the addition of a nice, juicy tentacle’, but I have to say, I think it makes it work *big grin*.
