sketch for drawergeeks: create your own Sith. REJECT. Taking from Ivan Reitman and Mr. Staypuft... who would be the perfect good, wholesome, always safe being that never wavers from the side of Good and Righteous? To take a character like that and turn it upside down is such a hoot. (Plus it's just so much fun to say Darth Pooh.) He could try to turn Christopher Robin to the dark side... getting Christopher Robin's hand caught in a honey pot for all eternity. The introduction of Darth Piglet, who looks quite a bit like a miniature Darth Maul. Oh, and don't forget that all evil character versions need the goatee for easy identification... it's in the rules.

since i tanked the mummy when I did the color on it... I am working on the new assignment for drawergeeks to see if I can redeem myself... create your own SITH... from Star Wars. So, who is the leader of the "Evil Empire"? George Steinbrenner. Well, I betch'a he's in ca-hoots with the Sith. Probably paid extra to have the deathstar shaped like a baseball. So rather than just take parts of things and create some evil space ninja... I thought it would be good to take someone and see what it would be like to turn them to the dark side. (well, with the Yankees it isn't really turning as much as exposing). It will be interesting to see what comes about in the next couple of weeks.

Color completed. I am happy. Always things that I have learned to apply next time. That is what makes it so much fun, when it works. I guess even when it doesn't work, I have learned never to try that again.
PS. It has been a year since I have started all of this exploration. Drawergeeks, getting back into drawing, all that. Interesting that the 100th post is the 1 year anniversary of my first Drawergeeks submission. Lee Ann, Bryan, Greg, Lacey, Meech, Dale, Nicole, Jake, Carol, Everybody... thanks so much for the encouragement and the kick in the pants to "get on with it".

Clown Scratchboard: Hokey smokes it's finally done... what a job. I am happy it turned out as I hoped. But I don't know how the champions of the pen in the last century did this and made a profit. Sheesh. My eyes my eyes. I need colors to see.
