You know high quality and especially puffy chested and well spine bumped Ropen rendering aside, what may have me the most entertained this week, is to learn that none of us have any idea how to translate what a volcano looks like, onto paper! Like I’m pretty sure that’s just a giant grease pen sticking out of the ground on this one!
Man I wish i could make out that button.. closest I can come is “Garvey Grape” which I’m just hoping was someone’s imaginary horses name… I mean if you’re gonna imagine a horse friend why not make him drool-y and bat winged right? Also those front legs are fantastically limp!
Judge’s Commentary – This is easy, anti-grav or upside down drips of blood, drool, whatever the fluid-ish substance is… will almost always get you in the top three!
Finally some good old fashioned lined paper again! Now can the allure of a hairy chest make up for the John Merrick-eque shoulder growth? well if 1970s America can count as a completed experiment… hell yes! Also that’s a really good “no way I’m holding a scythe to murder you” expression on this guys face!
Even though I’m assuming this is meant as a depiction of Cockatrice on weasel crime… a small part of me reads the expression in that beasts eyes as entirely different and makes me wanna to steal one of my all time favorite lines from Conan… He’s Conan the Cimmerian(in this case Cockatrice)…. He won’t cry. So I cry for him…
Ok so am I the only one seeing the adorable lil muppet old lady face in this beasts chest hair… I mean maybe its my tendency to stare away from mountain teef, or i guess in this case we’ll just say Maine teef… regardless what i assume is a loincloth is pretty great and by far the best part if you ask me is the dueling anklets!
Ha! I swear there’s something familiar about that victim! I remember when i was a lil kid drawing and I would always painfully try and match the size of the sucker to the taper of the tentacle… and had I only known its just 1000 times more fun to blast a bunch of circles in the general vicinity of where they could be… plus, mismatched suckers are badass! Great green teeth too!
So cause his tongue looks a lil like a pretty valentines heart… does that mean he’s like an angler fish of lost love?… no… cause he’s out to sea on an iceberg and I’ve seen Cabin Boy so I know sailors are salty foul mouthed dogs not carrying for the likes of love nor stuffed monkeys… so I’m just gonna say the heart tongue is one of those unique coincidences… and how great are the multitude of lil nubbly rotten teef we’re getting this beast!
Ha! you know I was just looking at a few of my beast drawings from when I was lil and those feathers are exactly how i used to draw dinosaur scales… And it’s a funny realization that things I am most uncomfortable with in real life (like hill teeth) are some of my favorite things to see in drawings!
Judge’s Commentary – You know it’s a simple as this, he/she sorta looks like it’s curtseying which if it is the case is adorable or if not it looks like it really has to pee and that’s enough for me!
Well first and foremost as a huge proponent of chalkboard paint, bravo to you for having a scribble wall, and secondly having my own scribble wall, i am familiar with the nothing is really ever erased property of the medium… so does that just say “tits” through the middle of his shoulder? And I feel like he’s dressed for a beer, but is that instead a steaming cup of java?
Man good floating perspective… and also might i add, introspective? Though watch enough multiverse specials and you’ll realize that you’re wallowing in your turtly woes for naught because you are in fact a real turtle as well as a very successful tap dancer and probably in many universes a delicious Amburger (for amphibian)
You know I’m not sure what I like best, the string of outdoor party lights, the perm, or the fact that he’s already poured your glass of wine before asking if you want one!
Judge’s Commentary – Second place goes to #9. I would totally go get drunk with that saucy horse man. That half-in-the-bag-come-hither gaze has me imagining what kind of bad pick up lines centaurs would use. Also, I’m a sucker for the romantic glass bulb string lights.
Oh man what a good old hollywood actress style tendon neck! And speaking of hollywood this one has lots of that “the smell of my own lip worries me” face made famous by that Twilight, girl…. And don’t think that I haven’t noticed that there are officially too many characteristics present here to deny that this is Sneurism any longer, which i also think is pretty great
Seriously guys… whats with all the shooting? isn’t it pretty obvious I have a hurty finger and I’m looking for some medical assistance here? I’m also greatly entertained that this one feels a lil less spaceman and a lil more “kentucky special” squirrel turtle hybrid, and that somehow, my dead grandmas awkwardly modern couch made this pic!
So there were a couple weeks where i sorta bounced back and fourth whether i thought this artist was really drawing our own Sneurat as beast in a counter to her Seanist movement… with this one there can be no doubt…. cause she really loves kittens… jeeze… where did you think i was going with that?
Judge’s Commentary – Something about the big brown eyes, and maternal pose with the kitties gets to me. (Yes, I realize those cats might get thrown.) Reminds me of Gorillas in the Mist, or at least Congo. Soulful, but with stink-lines.
Having had a number of friends over the years have snaky pets, I can confirm that this is one of those dick things snakes do… they just cant be bothered to finish swallowing something before going into the rest of the days activities… I mean you would think there would be some rule like no hooping for a half hour… but i suppose they are cold blooded, so maybe that half hour would have to be a week?… hey maybe i get snakes after all!
