I feel bad about this. My first topic on this message board and here I am posting my doodles. *sigh* Now why can't I just fall in line and post a topic or question thread, eh? Well, I made it. I might as well go along...
Hello. I draw. I draw a lot. Especially during downtimes at work. A few months ago, I started drawing Sam and Max in the mix of my other doodles, sketches, and notes in my little notebook. They basically took over two notebooks in a matter of time.
Long story short, I've been trying to study them to master drawing them. ("Mastering" as in able to draw them by head at any time.) Since I am suppose to be drawing everyday anyways as exercise, I'm forcing myself to draw at least one page of Sam and/or Max (extra to the drawing exercises I'm currently doing).
So what does this whole topic have to do with anything and why the long winded introduction (if it is an introduction). Well, I thought maybe you all might like to see what I draw up. For the monster of an introduction, I always do that. I never mean to type a lot. Sorry. ^^;
(I skipped a lot of my earlier drawings because they might give you cancer or something.)
An image dump of some of my good notebook stuff.
One of my early drawings safe for viewing. Still doesn't look right.
I forgot to draw one day and quickly made this up as I was trying to go to bed.
You are probably tired to seeing all the junk. I don't blame you. Here's drawings that I put effort into. Or tried...
Various Sam poses.
Messing with perspective and Sam's expressions.
The "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" day. I felt bad after finishing this.
"Let me at 'em, Sam!"
I'm getting the impression Sam doesn't like to be drawn...
Hmm... I actually don't have anything to say here...
Promenade Sam and Max
My first time playing with the rats.
Max, Max, and Max...
I made a semi-big mistake in this one. I didn't catch it until I actually looked at pictures of revolvers... Plus Sam is suppose to be right-handed...
I can't take full credit for the expression Sam has on the top right. I was referencing the model sheets that came with the cartoon DVD...
"Feels like I'm flying!"
Safe in Sam's coat.
When my mind wanders, thankfully it doesn't wander too far...
Sam: "But I must have it!" Max: "NO SAM!"
The first time drawing bite-sized Sam and Max and I end up making one of them cry. ^^; Let's all shed a tear for Brooklyn's Astroland...
Okay, okay, okay... I haven't been drawing... But...There must be other things I've been doing on my spare time...
Believe me, I had another page of this nonsense. All I can say about that never-to-be-seen-out-of-my-sketchbook page is there are certain expressions that doesn't suit Sam at all... :/
I wanted to draw scene than what I usually do and came up with this. And for such drawings, I like to make a quick layout plan (in this case, on a notecard since I didn't have time to actually draw when I got this idea) before digging right in.
Are they eavesdropping on each other or listening to the rats in the wall?
Since I have weird hours at work now (they will change next month), I might not be able to update everyday. I promise that I will, at the very least, update every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Consider the weekdays as bonus days. Sorry all!
