"I Swear! I Put Right Into R2's Data Bank. Didn't I?"

Never been much of a Dr. Who guy, which means I put a twist on the subject. Do the Dalek's look like trumped up R2 units? 

Apologies to the good Doctor's fans. : )

Swamp Thing

sorry for the crummy Ipod photo. I actually started this one during one of the Drink and Draws and finished it on a mountain in West Virginia (on vacation). All pencil with a non-photo blue rough in my hardbound 11"x17" sketchbook.

Me as Tin Tin

I drew Tin Tin as a self-portrait because when I had short hair I kinda looked like him. Definitely had the little whip of hair. So I added glasses and my new beard, but now it just looks kinda creepy. heh!

I remember discovering the Tin Tin books back in Middle School. I think the first book I saw was even in french. I couldn't read it, but the story telling captured me! I searched them out at the library and the adventure and action and childlike wonder still gets me today.

And, of course, because I can't get away from my love of the look, a half-tone version:

FInal Touch I promise I'm done now.

Swamp Thing (Not Quite Done) (But Now It is.)

Added some water and a little more detail around the shadows and such. Done for now.

...but I needed to post SOMEthing.....Must confess: I never really got into swamp thing. Prolly just never really got into at the right time. But as a kid, I dug the movie. And we had one of those weird playdoh-like action figures where you could rip his arm off and stick it back. (Except when it got too full of carpet junk and animal hair!)

Swamp Thing FInished

Added some texture and more highlights. I think he's done now.
