Red Head



Well, over on THE DRAWINGBOARD this month's Girls drawing jam is redheads. Go check it out, there has been some really nice work done so far. I noticed that every drawing was of a really nice, pretty, sane looking girl. Now, I'm not one for stereotypes, but every redheaded girl I have met has been NUTS. I mean crazy. This is just my experience. I'm sure there are some very nice, normal redheaded girls out there, so don't send any hatemail my way. I believe that you exist, I just haven't met you.

Here's what the pencils looked like for this...

Emma said...

Haha, awesome. The red being the only non-blue in the entire picture really pops it.

So is that thing her conscience?

Cheers

Gerald said...

Nice illo John. I thought the pencil work was already fantastic, but when you layed down the ink and colors...Whoa!

You should definitely get a sketchbook together and sell it at APE-con. I'd buy one.

Fantastic John. Red heads can be dangerous, but with firm handling and lots of exercise, they can make a loving family pet.

Wow, thanks for all of the kind comments everyone.

Adam - I'll post more women when I can. After I finish my latest painting I'll see what I can come up with for April's jam.

Thanks Emma. You gonna be at the sketchcrawl?

Thanks Martin.

Yeah Ven, man I found some of the art I posted when I first joined the drawingboard... eek. But, it's good to see progress. Still got a long way to go though.

Ber - thanks buddy,

Gerald - Sketchcrawl? As you'll see in my latest post, sketchbook ain't gonna happen. That was some good english right there.

Thanks ALina.

Who are you anonymous? I assume I know you since I know who it is you reference. interesting.

lizzel lizzel, mojo, andrew thanks.

Kris, I still owe you a phone call. I don't know, I think they're like monkeys and banned as pets in the U.S. Something about unpredictability combined with Rabies being a bad thing.

Thanks for stopping by Jav, dig your work as well.

Robin, how are things?

lorraine, mauricio, lee, one sick thanks a lot.
