OC in Filmation style. Richie Jones.
a simple request, but not so simple to pull off. I'm working on numerous Filmation tributes and many of them which look simple at the start don't turn out right because of keeping the proportions in order from start to finish. Even in paint, it took many tries to get a face looking like something that old studio cooked up.
FILMATION_Reggie Mantle_John Erwin tribute
Jane Webb, Dallas McKennon, Howard Morris, Lou Scheimer, all gone, but John Erwin lives on. More famous for providing the voice of He-Man, Reggie Mantle is the character I grew up hearing from John Erwin (and Morris the Cat from the 9-Lives commercials) The many seasons of the Archies on TV made Reggie a pretty familiar face. Here her is with his cornered coward expression, but his usual pan is mean laughter at playing pranks on the rest of the long-suffering gang.

Pinocchio in Outer Space_The Blue Fairy
Looking almost insectoid as opposed to the glowing bathing beauty in Disney's version, this rendition of the Blue Fairy is quite a bit sterner than Disney's too. After Pinocchio goes bad as a human boy, she turns him back into a living puppet. Mavis Mims spoke for this Blue Fairy who seems to live somewhere in the heavens, but close enough to Earth to be buzzed continuously by rockets, satellites and passing spaceships.

Weird music and broken glass tinkles accompany this fairy as she moves around in a slithery comet-like form. Still, I saw Pinocchio in Outer Space long before I got to see Disney's masterpiece and against all expectations, I kinda like this 1965 Belgian animated outing too.

Pretty faint...I had a hard time adjusting this pencil drawing for proper contrast.
RANKIN BASS_Francesca and IT_Kong's Kin
Lots of Kong-themed deviations this year. I'm in a groove this Halloween, but at least I'm drawing.

Baron Frankenstein didn't invite "IT" to the Mad Monster Party with all the others and Felix. He mightn't have come at all, but an impulsive Francesca maybe didn't count on getting captured by the lovesick ape after she sends an invitation of her own. IT does manage to get Yetch out of the picture with a timely flick of his finger. After that, Francesca is in a plight that only the Baron can concoct.

This deviation needs texture---hopefully I won't ruin it by adding IT's fur and more shadows.
Hi and sorry for those who have subscribed and expected more submissions.  I DO have photos and stories, but artwork is half a year behind. Problems where I rent a room have escalated to the point where I dread walking in the front door. It might turn out good if certain parties are evicted, but the scenario has played out before and nothing improved.

While I don't have an ulcer (yet) I'm not relaxed enough or comfortable enough where I live to draw.

I may (stress MAY) be able to rent a room from a real artist and get back on track. If that happens, expect another lull during which I will be uprooting from here and moving in elsewhere. No promises.

Zuider Zee
United States
I'm a 20th century survivor with bibliomania--compulsive urge to amass books. But I'm dealing with it. The mania has become too expensive to continue for much longer.

I'm trying to get something published, but I'm working with outdated equipment and I really hate salesmen.

Do you take requests?

Productivity and Privacy--with a Pricetag.      I have discovered a way to get work done--but it involves finding a nowhere town with a comfortable, quiet motel at a decent price.  Harder to do than you might think.  I got a batch of scale models finished and worked on, but I forgot to bring along pencils on my latest getaway, otherwise, I would have drawn more.  A few hundred dollars later and I cleaned some lingering projects off my workbench.  So, it isn't cheap.  Libraries are NOT what they were when I was a kid when SILENCE was the cardinal rule.  I will never have the turnout I had when I still lived in my folks old house and enjoyed hours upon hours of uninterrupted time to doodle and experiment.  Nowadays, the work comes with a loss.

One problem after another from internet connection woes, a broken-down ride, no space to work, noisy neighbors and SUMMER! I have come to hate the month of June and submit almost no work out of protest. And I think we can agree, this has been a particularly rotten June out of many in recent history. I'm glad it's over, personally.

Announcement--I'm forced to move from my fairly luxurious residence into a much more modest arrangement where space is extremely limited and web connection may be dodgy.  I intend to keep drawing, but getting images posted will be tough and submissions may fall to once a month if that.
