Where I Want to Live

uGGGHHhhhhh... So this all started as a stupid doodly idea, and then it blossomed out of control...

When I was a kid we had this overgrown planter in front of our house that was full of big gnarly elephant ear philodendrons and I fondly referred to it as "The Jungle." I spent a lot of my childhood in "The Jungle" and just the other day my love of looking up through big sunlit leaves combined with my genuine desire to be small enough to live underneath them and i was inspired to try and draw this...

Rough Layout

Ink and Marker

Final Photoshopification
I stayed up all night finishing this one, only to wake up and realize I hate it. The composition is too cluttered, the colors nauseating, the lighting and perspective off, and the look of the house unappealing to me. Sort of a 70s geodesic dome style thing. ugh. This picture was just supposed to be pleasant and welcoming and pretty. Not this odd complicated thing that doesn't resonate with any emotion I can put my finger on.

So I started over.

This time I made a quick mock up out of clay so I could get the lighting and perspective better.

After a rough layout or two (not shown) I did a ball point pen render.

Then colored in photoshop. I'm still not that happy with this picture, but it's closer to what I had in mind. I would encourage you to look at it full size and scroll around... It's almost fun to explore... (?)

New Pencils!

So Julio found these oil based pencils that we have been looking for. We seriously have been looking for them for well over a month. Since I was so excited to have them I thought it would be fun to a bunch of drawings with them last night. Here are some of my highlights.
I like this guy cause he is farting and his arms are all wrong. They bend the wrong way, plus arms just can't do most of the things he is doing. I find it funny. Oh and he has a dick.

This guy is the devil.

This guy is a lizard, or salamander. But hes got funny teeth.

This girl was a fun one to draw, I like everything but her head. Shes got thick ass legs.

This girls boobs are all wrong but her face is what I enjoy.

So yea, there is one drawing missing since I put it one the Funny Wall back at the apartment. Its an angry giant stomping around with a disproportionately large penis that also happens to be a monster with arms.

Another track for Matt B.

I made another one.

Carved Stone/Old Columns.mp3
(right click to download)

Although rough, I think this one is a little more on the mark, but I'm interested in what you all think (well, especially Matt B.). And, of course, we can use bits and pieces if there are parts you like and don't like.

Dad's Birthday Comic

I made this for my dad's birthday present...I don't know how many of you have experienced this situation with your parents, but it happens to me all the time! 
(oh yeah, and hopefully some of you will recognize that walk cycle...which, by the way, doesn't take me hours!)
