Don't Look at Mii!

I said never look at Mii!

This didn't actually happen, but I was half expecting it to, as the hair at the top of my noggin has been thinning since high school. Under direct light I become George Costanza

And now for something something completely different. Here's a sketch of a kinda gross image I might have used for another 3DS comic, joking about the warnings it gives on screwing up your eyes. But I dropped it when I saw that Penny Arcade already did that.

Zombie Johnny Appleseed and Zombie Oysters

A suppose there's a moral to this, if you happen to be an oyster.

More Disney zombies, next being Johnny Appleseed, who dies simply of old age in the somewhat obscure Melody Time package film. I thought that Lucifer from Cinderella was the next one to go, but a relative was nice enough to inform me that he's alive in well in the straight to video sequels.

Before Melody Time, Disney made The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and I was considering zombifying Ichabod. But at the end, after the Headless Horseman supposedly "got 'em," it said there was a rumor that he ran off to another town and is married with kids. In the end, I decided that if the movie itself says that's it's questionable if someone died, then I'll just leave it be.

Next in line are the curious oysters from The Walrus and the Carpenter segment in Alice in Wonderland. I didn't do any particular gimmick with them as far as referencing them to their death, because technically there would be no remains to zombify if they were consumed by a Walrus.

Unless there were some reanimated Walrus feces. But the mental image I got from typing that last sentence is bad enough.

Reason Model Sheet

Why's he so skinny? This guy needs to eat a cheeseburger!

Well, this took longer than I thought it would, due partly to me misjudging how long it would take to think up and draw a bunch of poses, mostly due to actually having various things to do these past few weeks such as an interview, drug test, and having relatives over. Oh, and I also got a 3DS and Zelda 3D, which I'm trying very hard not to play even as I type this.

But back to the actual drawing. It may seem unnecessary to make a model sheet of a character that will probably only be drawn by me, but I actually like model sheets just for the sake of looking a them. Even if I don't plan to draw the character on any given model sheet, I just like looking at the various poses and expressions. To me, they're art in and of themselves. Plus, this may look good in a portfolio.

Power ties ftw.

It's been a while since I've done a post, and I'm still not done with my current project, so I figured I'd post another old pocket sketchbook drawing. This is a sort of interpretation of Tim from the game Braid, which is one of my favorites. In the game, Tim is seeking "the princess," which based on the purposely vague plot could be his girlfriend, sister, mother or the atomic bomb. Anyway at the end (SPOILER!), what seems to be her escaping her kidnapper ends up actually being her running away from Tim to be rescued. So however you look at the story, it seems that Tim isn't the perfect guy.

So anyway, the way I see it, Tim has been using his time manipulation powers for infinity trying to get this girl he can't have, and the confusing plot is because of Tim himself no longer remembering the specific reasons of why he needs this "princess" and what he did wrong in the first place to make her leave him. So I drew him as rather disheveled and a little mental. Oh, and he's looking at his watch cuz of, you know, the whole time travel thing.
