Ronnie. In. Spaaaaaace!!

8 Nov

The other night, I started doodling Ronnie from Whomp!

Since I was watching Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking (which is really quite interesting!) I decided to have him in space.

I’ve been messing around with the brush in gimp. Think I’ve finally decided that a small-radius pencil is the way to go for now. Also, making sure that I work with a large canvas. I can always crop and resize as I wish, so why limit myself?

Just noticed that the purple arm things are uneven. Whoops! Live and Learn! At least I did kinda ok with the perspective? And the spacesuit helmet. I do like that I made it to fit the beard. Also giving myself a pat on the back for trying to color it!

Jon and Ghost

This spring, Game of Thrones premiered on HBO. The season covered the first book of A Song of Ice and Fire, a series by George R. R. Martin. I cannot recommend this series enough to anyone who enjoys fantasy. Or even just medieval fiction, as the fantasy bits aren’t really prominent in the books, not at first. And they certainly aren’t center stage either.

The style the books are written in is one that I greatly enjoy. Each chapter is written from the perspective of a character. Time is passing and we learn what’s going on from different view points, rarely overlapping things that occurred. As such, there’s a great deal of inner monologue that the show wasn’t able to do, but dealt with by having fantastic actors and adding in some scenes to convey certain relationships and understandings.

I’ve been rereading the series so that I can read the latest book. Just started Storm of Swords, the third book. Love the direwolves, hence the drawing.



Shark Week!

Shark Week is here!

…And I lack cable. There are videos on Discovery’s site, but they’re only clips. I watched a bunch of them anyways while I doodled this shark. Not really sure why it looks happy.
