This was the drawing where I hit my stride. Here's an example of where I try to take a typically boring request subject - in this case, dolphin - and try to jazz it up a bit. In this case by warping the background.
A softball catcher request. Yes, that batter is getting sliced in half.
More jazzing up of the boring and typical. This family suggested soccer then suggested shamu. I decided to combine the two. I also love how this particular Shamu turned out.
Batman is not and never should be boring. Unfortunately I have done a lot of boring batman drawings and seen boring ones done by others. Here's my attempt at re-enacting one of my favorite scenes from Dark Knight - the skyhook.
I wish I photographed this girl. She had an amazing hat. I really love how this one turned out too and would love to have a side by side comparison for it. Also, she requested to be with her Chihuahua for the picture.
I think this is my first real successful attempt at jazzing up a 'boring' subject. Making a muscle man and beach babe into...well...this. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have fun making this drawing.
This nice couple asked me to draw them face-only. I wish more people would do that. Gives me an excellent opportunity...
Old scratch ends a devilish day.
