I get stuck on "Picture Saturday" and then I can't think of anything else to describe it, ya feel me?
It was really warm this week, which simultaneously made me really happy and a little disturbed, because when it's this warm in March, it usually means we get a ton of snow in June.... No one likes snow in June. June is supposed to be warm!
Right now it's super grey outside.
Grey days make me have three kinds of moods: 1.) I get really crafty and artsy, and I want a billion cups of tea. 2.) I get incredibly restless and want to take a walk or spar with Amy. 3.) I get a bit moody and have no energy, and binging on TV shows seems like the thing to do.
I'm currently a bizarre mixture of all three. I want to do stuff, but I also don't want to do anything. It's very confusing.
So here's what I worked on this week, drawing wise.*
*You don't seem very excited, what's wrong with you?!
1.) I finally saw Big Hero 6 last Sunday. It was adorable and fun, and sad, and I cried like three times. (Judge not until you see it, okay?) I'd probably rank it just under How To Train Your Dragon. It made me feel things. Terrible things. lol. I won't lie, Hiro's hair was so cute, I love little boys to have hair like that. I like messy kid hair.
Anyway, yes, I recommend it, it's cute. I came home after I saw it and had to sketch a fist bump, because bah-la-da-la-da-la-da!
2.) And then, because Baymax is really easy, I had to doodle some more. (Hiro, not so much, but shhh, I didn't have a reference picture.)
3.) Seriously, Baymax is adorable.
4.) We played basketball, and failed miserably. (Soooo miserably: Six or seven of us played, and over the course of an hour we probably got a basket... like... 6 times? In our defense, we don't like to do things the easy way, so we were really far away from the hoop, with the hoop being on one side of the yard and us at the other. Nevertheless, it was embarrassing.)
This prompted sketching.
5.) .... yeah.
6.) Random Irish guy.
7.) Creepy pose of stretch.
8.) Pirate lady, who's waist is incredibly small-- I blame it on the corset. *Shifty eyes*
9.) The one I finished and went "Whut."
10.) We did something that got me back in the mood to learn self-defense, and I spend a goodly while doodling boxers.
11.) Because boxing doodles are fun.
12.) And then I promptly binged on FightTIPS* videos on youtube and figured I might as well draw that logo.
*Really fun to watch and you learn a lot.
I'm very proud of that logo.
13.) This inspired more boxing sketches.
14.) I drew a character for Hannah a few weeks ago, and she was like, "I love it, but can you make his 'fro... bigger?" And apparently this 'fro gives the guy an extra five or six inches in height, so I gently reminded her that I suck at drawing afros. But I gave it my best shot.....
'FROS SUCK! I failed. I hate drawing 'fros, they are terrible and it looks like... I don't even know what he has on his head but it's not hair. I found something I fail at.
Treskie cannot draw afros.
15.) Moving on quickly, we have Richard, which is also from Hannah and Jess's book. He's a twelve or thirteen year old hyperactive genius, and I don't know what it was about him, but I imagined him with giant circle glasses. Hannah insists that he does not, in fact, wear these, but my imagination says he does, so... He wears glasses. I insist.
Treskie has spoken.
16.) Finally, on our list of delightfully disturbing drawings by Treskie, we have the next installment of
Project My Little Pony Humanized!
But because Princess Celestia doesn't get a whole lot of screen time, I don't know her that well, and hence, she only gets one picture.
Princess Celestia is... billowy.
Seriously, she can be standing completely still and in an enclose space with no wind, and she's billowy.
Surprisingly enough, I actually like the way she turned out. I know she's not exactly the way people imagine her, but I ended up not violently wanting to destroy the drawing, so there's that. What think you?
I took a break halfway through this post and went on a hike. It was quite delightful.
And with that, I shall leave you all, with many hugs and kisses and whatever you humans do when you say goodbye.
