Draw With Me December, Day 11: Walk It Off
Well, now. Pretty sure this isn’t what’s meant by the phrase ‘walk it off’, seeing as she seems to be shedding clothes. Should we tell her?
Again, the unique interpretations of a theme. Someone might need to point Ceinwen to UrbanDictionary…and her Day 11 entry to a change room.
Dwmd #11 - Walk It Off
My zombie isn’t so great… but I really struggle drawing people - undead or non… but this was my idea for today, so I went with it.
Raevynn pushes her artistic skills with her Day 11 drawing. Keep going and you’ll keep getting better!
I meant you, Raevynn…the zombie’s not going anywhere fast with one leg.
December 11th- Walk it Off
“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the f*** on.” - Tupac
Today’s drawing is about just “walking it off”. Literally. Leave the past behind and move forward. It’s something I, and I’m sure most people, need to work on.
Just letting go. For some reason, we always hold on to the past. And we let the past define who we are.
Also, I am not too sure why I am in my undies/bathing suit, but I guess the near-nakedness represents a state of vulnerability.
For this drawing, I followed a tutorial on how to draw basic figure shapes. It’s really easy to remember the human body, in its simplest form, is just shapes! And you draw those shapes, and slowly start to draw in what resembles a realistic human body. I hope to follow these tutorials more to get a better sense of what it’s like to draw a more realistic human body form.
Jaymie’s Day 11 entry goes a completely different route. I love it when people come up with unique interpretations of the theme!
Draw With Me December #11 - Walk it Off
Not much to add to this one. Just a normal guy, trying to get to work on time.
#11: Walk it Off
I know toons are supposed to have various heavy things dropped on them, but I imagine it wouldn’t feel great.
At least Dave went for the grievous-but-comical injury in his Day 11 entry. I’d feel bad if everyone missed that idea.
Day 345 - Walk It Off
So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end Semisonic, Closing Time
This theme was tough for me to come up with a drawing for. I’ve done both grievous but comical injuries and walk-off home runs (within a week of each other, even!), so I opted to draw walking off a few too many beverages at the local pubbe. I haven’t been that drunk ever, nor do I plan on it, but for the sake of art, I’ll embellish.
You know, one upshot of not having a valid driver’s license is the removal of the ability to drive under the influence of anything. I have to hit my reset button for respect levels when I found out someone has done that, especially in a modern metropolis where there are ample cabs and overnight skeleton service on the transit system.
Of course, I probably would have used my credit card in this scenario to grab a cab. But let’s suspend disbelief and say I was too sloshed to realize that.
For a quick drawing, it came out quite nicely. I suppose I could’ve chosen a different colour for the night sky, but I didn’t want it to be black again. Might tweak that later.
Dwmd #10 - dream job
So here’s the thing… I’ve never been able to really decide on a dream job… I have quite a few of them, as you can see.
Raevynn pulled double-duty today to catch up - here’s her Day 10 entry. Having a few dream jobs is a good thing in my books (I’ve got 3 or 4, personally). it’s when you try to do all of them that things get hairy.
Draw With Me December #10 Guest Artist!
The multi-talented Ms. Vanessa joined me this evening for DWMD, and put together a Disney-stylized idea of a dream job, though I should point out this was made more for fun than as her actual ideal career.
She might be appearing every once and a while, so keep an eye out for her guest posts.
Girz’s friend Vanessa shows up with a guest post (so it’s a double-guest post for my followers) on the Day 10 subject. Don’t knock it - for some people, this is a dream job.
Draw With Me December #10 - The Dream Job
Tooth: Sorry, but not all of us get to work one day a year. Am I right, Sandy?
- The Tooth Fairy and Sandman from Rise of the Guardians
If anyone’s got a ‘dream job’, it’s definitely the Sandman. I found Rise of the Guardians to be a surprisingly pleasing movie. I really enjoyed how they portrayed the characters, most especially Santa. The people dreaming of the unicorn and the dinosaur are my bestest boofle jaymierosen and myself, respectively.
Drew with unsharpened pencil because I was at a friend’s house, but with the awesome bonus of her submitting a drawing for DWMD too (that’s being posted next :D).
Also can I add that this picture is immediately going into my top fave, if I ever make a top fave. I think it came out great!
Girz spooked me a little bit with her Day 10 entry - those faces look very accurate. And I laughed at the dream-animal of each.
DWMD day 10: Dream Job
For me, it’s as a late-night radio host, one who gets live call-ins AND gets to play music. I apparently had a small scale problem, so I attempted to fix it by adding myself standing on a milk crate. =)
Ceinwen’s Day 10 entry lands her in the recording studio. You’re listening to CRMB - The CRUMB 97.7 FM.
