Due to a not so popular demand im putting these up anyway! and since i already said a lot in my blog post, i'll repeat it all here:
So lately i've been spending my spare time (which i have a lot of) on drawing members of the GiantBomb Staff, that would include Ryan, Vinny, Jeff and Brad. Drawing is something that im good at, but simply not that good at, you get me?
For the drawings i simply look at a screenshot or whatever and transfer what i see to paper the best i can, sadly, most screen shots and paused videos are low enough of quality that it's very troublesome to draw eyes...thats right, eyes...So instead!! i simply draw Ben Coello style eyes, simply because drawing blurry eyes is very diffcult, think of it as an homage to Ben's style (he's got a good style) Now these aint pro grade, you're not going to see this on a limted edition T-shirt any time soon! but for what its worth, they're cute little drawings taking no less than 15 minutes to make.
Another note to make...im not using drawing pencils here, much to my demise too, because these are thick assed HB office pencils and in turn, drawing with them is F'n awful, and to make it even worse im not even bothering to find my drawing pencils, i'm that damn lazy.
So here is my Odd little drawings of the crew, these drawings are not exact matches, which is what makes them original. Speaking of original, i would like to say to the better artists here, please dont go away for a bit and then come back with a better drawing, thats not exactly fair, and dont take shits on my work either! i take it badly. If you're gunna say something bad about it, don't say anything, cheers!
Enlarging the picture is a good idea ;) but be warned, the detail shows the messy nature of my Office Pencils. Yeah these dont have any colour, nor have been photoshopped, these a raw cuts dawg, bad lighting and all, and they'll stay that way for the time being.
As to why i did these? well, it was largely because i was bored but also, i wanted to contribute to the community here in some way, something i haven't managed to succeed in doing so far. The idea was to create human/toon hybrids outta these guys.
The quickest to draw, this one had no problems other than the hand and the expression...oh hey wait, those the hardest parts, so i guess it was very difficult...but it turned out great!
Jeff in particular was the hardest to draw, hes got a difficult mouth feel...uhh...wait...mouth draw! also to note, the mic is way too long, this one was filled with problems, it turned out ok in the end.
Similar to jeff, the hardest part with Brad was the face, and of course, those burns! with the most cartoon-ish face of the drawings, i say i got away with it lightly, it looks like brad enough to make the final cut.
This was a lot of fun to draw, and features probably the best profile shot of Ryan i've ever done (then again i've only done that one so, there you go) However, once again Jeffs difficult mouth draw got the better of me, so i slapped a face bandana on there, adding somewhat comical value.
By far the easiest of them all, Rich K. Gallup turned out great, the expression, taken from the wizards vs cyborgs video, seemed daunting, but once again, borrowing Ben's Style, and many other styles for that matter, made it easier. Though now here, he looks hella pissed instead...
