Beardus Maximus fan art, day 33

7 Nov

While everyone is expecting a tablet PC from Apple called “Slate”, in reality Apple has been working in total secrecy on a sleigh, called “Sleigh”. Here is an artist’s impression of a leaked pre-release version of Apple Sleigh.

This drawing is made to support the sale of the collected trade comic book of PC Weenies, a webcomic by Krishna Sadasivam for Geeks and people who can tolerate them.

Krishna grows a beard in response to a challenge from his fellow comics creators, while he doesn’t like a beard. Read more about it, and how you can support the artist in this post on his blog. For each copy of the trade comic book “Rebootus Maximus” sold through the website Krishna won’t shave for a day. Let him look like a hobo and freak out his wife, who is on family visit for a few months in India.

That is all.

What one could do with an ellipse other than to use in geometry.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 28

This fan art is made to support the sale of the trade paper back comic book of the web comic PC Weenies. The comic book is called Rebootus Maximus.

The creator of Rebootus Maximus, Krishna Sadasivam, has a small experiment going on, where he will grow a beard for as many days as there are copies of the comic book sold through his website. He called this dare Beardus Maximus, and it is the challenge I’m supporting whole-heartedly by drawing a piece of fan art, either with Bob Weiner in it, or something that has to do with beards (or both).

BTW I used the ellipse construction technique I wrote about earlier today to construct Bob Weiner’s head shape.

That is all.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 27

The idea behind this piece of fan art was to find expressions of Bob in the comic book that illustrate the six recognized basic emotions in comics (and art), from which all other emotions spring.

So what it came down to was mostly an exercise in search, and then trying to reproduce the face of Bob Weiner as closely as in the comic art. I’m not too sure about the surprise and the disgust, though. It was the closest to the basic emotion as I could find them, browsing through Rebootus Maximus.

The colors were a bit of a puzzle too. Anger (red), sadness (blue) and fear (yellow) were easy, but what colors represent joy, surprise and disgust? Well, orange seemed to fit joy, and the other two colors (purple for surprise and brownish mauve for disgust) I found through Google search.

This fan art is made to help sell the trade paper back comic book Rebootus Maximus and to support the artist in his quest to grow a beard for as long as the comic book is sold through the website (see Beardus Maximus on PC Weenies).

That is all.

"I’m getting my fix of web comics on pcweenies.com"

"Now collected in a handy trade paper back comic book called Rebootus Maximus"

PC Weenies – The web comic no (closet) geek should do without

Nota Bene. This drawing is meant as social commentary on marketing to young children, and as a fan art piece to support the writer and creator of the PC Weenies web comic.

That is all.

Sloppy drawing

27 Oct

I started sketching and sketching with a pencil and this form popped up. It wasn’t planned. Just some sloppy drawing. Afterwards I’ve inked, scanned and cleaned it up a bit. Next I colored it in GIMP.

Sloppy drawing

Not very anatomically correct, but a lot of fun to do.

That is all.
