Vampirella Sketch Card 01

San Diego is over and I'm pretty sure Breygent has doled out all their exclusive Vampirella cards, so i should be in the free and clear to share the rest of them now.

Planning to drop these one-a-day as I can as I usually do, so look forward to a few weeks of red bathing suited cheesecake.

18 July -- Dr. Sketchy's with Percy Kat

Last night was another in the limited summer run of Dr. Sketchy's events in Toronto.  It was another sweltering night in Toronto.  I'm starting to think rain is a lie or nature is responding to Rob Ford being elected as mayor and shutting down in horror.

Percy Kat was the model and it felt very much like a 70s genre revue; he first emerged from behind the red curtain looking like a supporting character from Barbarella:

 As the night progressed and the heat wore away and my focus I went back to this drawing and rendered it up a bit.

1-minute gestures were the start -- as usual.

Followed by 5-minute poses. . . .

 After the break Percy came out smothered in gold glitter and make-up and a hat that would have looked at home on Whoopi Goldberg's head from her role in the Star Trek series.

The challenge was the best incorporation of James Bond and this was the best I could do.

Sorry. . . .

The last costume change and Percy wore a wig that put this image in my head:

And so my brain was fried for the last of the night even though I made a few more feeble attempts at drawing.

 Despite the oppressive, soul-devouring heat, it was a great night out sketching with like-minded deviants.

11 July 2011 Dr. Sketchy's with Obskyura

 I made it to my first Dr. Sketchy's in about a year and I don't think I could have picked a better session to return to.  Obskyura was a delight to draw and a pleasure to observe. This was her second Sketchy appearance, butI missed her first go round, sadly

Started off with gestures:
 Then a few 5-minute sketches:
Followed by the first challenge; incorporate either Admiral Akbar and his famous "It's a trap!" line or something Star Wars related.  This is all I could come up with. . . .
 Obskyura returned  as a befanged lady in red:
 The second challenge was incorporating your least favourite vampire.  The drawing was an awful Pattinson caricature that won just because I make a joke about vampires lacking a heartbeat ensuring their penises will never rise from the grave.

Last batch was a lovely barbarian queen costume with an outrageous wig.

I limited myself to just pencils and a marker, leaving my overstocked art kit at home.

More next week.

Red Skulls No More

Crisis on (Not So) Infinite Red Skulls?

Actually, with all the gaping, lipless mouths this could be a rough for some sort of zombie poster.

RED ZOMBIE!  The zombie pathogen in this story not only raises the dead, but turns them cadmium red medium as well.
