Couldn't really think of anything to draw so I thought I would tyr making up a face. Then the hair came out of a conversation where I said to my roommate that he should get a circular Mohawk if he goes bald. I want to do another drawing with an old man with a more realistic circular mohawk. I was looking at video's of Fat Princess and I really want to try playing it. Since I can't really I will do the next best thing and hopefully draw some pieces in the style

A friend of mine wanted a drawing of an octopus wearing headphones for her radio show. I'm not sure why but I had the hardest time with the headphones. The way they fit on the head alluded me. I still don't think I got them perfectly. I also had a hard time coloring this fellow. I ended up with adding the arrows and textures to build up the rather weak color and composition. I learned a little more about gradients in the process. I choose classes tomorrow. Oh no, I'm not ready

Oh goodness I spent longer on this than I should have Anyways I tried pushing the details again. Sadly I wasn't that happy with the result. It lacks a strong color scheme or composition in my opinion. Next time if I try detailed textures I will look at real subjects to get the right look to the texture.

I use a old external ps/2 keyboard for shortcuts and what not when I'm drawing. Without the keyboard drawing is much slower. To use the keyboard I use an ps/2 to usb adapter. My old adapter broke last week and the new replacement just didn't work so it isn't till now that I have had a usable external keyboard. That's why I fell behind on my drawings last week. Anyways I'm back with a creepy dog with grilz. I had fun with playing with brush dynamics to make the fur on this guy.
