View Full Version : Ask me to sketch something.

And I will sketch it* and post it as an attachment here.

I'm no artist, but I used to draw. I've never been good at whipping out a quick sketch though, and I want to challenge myself. So let's have it!

*No porn! And while I am asking for a challenge, It'd be nice if things were fairly simple... not like "An apple" simple, but, y'know.

What's the cats backstory?

Rack 'n Ruin
2015-07-10, 09:36 AM
Previously owned by a little old lady, who the cat killed by excessive lap sitting leading to DVT and fatal stroke. A couple of months of being a stray followed, largely on the wrong side of the tracks down by the docks. Cat now looking for a new home and world domination through cuteness. I'm getting a tortoiseshell vibe, but gender is up to Sades.

Auntie Slag
2015-07-10, 09:40 AM
Tortoiseshell would be nice to contrast against First Aid's whiteness. Does it unexpectedly perk up only when First Aid comes along?

Rack 'n Ruin
2015-07-10, 09:42 AM
I'd say it puts on a show, but is inwardly ambivalent. First Aid is taken in, though.

Auntie Slag
2015-07-10, 09:55 AM
This may require a companion sketch: A darkly lit scene around a table involving Galvatron and other top-flight Decepticons hatching a villainous plot to steal First Aid's cat.

Shockwave is somewhat disgusted, but no-one can tell because he only has an eye for a face. Anyway he's entirely consumed about faded 80's TV movie star Connie Selecca and has been painstakingly corresponding under the pseudonym Scott Wave with multiple DVD publishers re: getting all of her material on disc. He considers First Aid's affection for a cat mere pithy compared to his real love for a professional actress.

In the scene he displays this by looking away disinterestedly.

But which version of Countdown? I suspect Slag is a purest who would demand Carol (perhaps shamelessly using the trust she's built up with vulnerable old people to shill them shit) and the rotting corpse of Richard.

I'd go for Rachel and... I don't know, whoever the male host is this week.

Yeah, but think what you're asking... If she were to put him out of work, how could she possibly livio with herself?

Rack 'n Ruin
2015-07-10, 01:52 PM
S'alright. Livio can scrape a living drawing Death's Head eating focaccia, or Buzzsaw fretting over Soundwave's absence, or Rachel Riley on Countdown.

Come to think of it, are we sure that's not what he has been drawing lately?

All right. Two down... um, a WHOLE BUNCH to go!

There's no way I'm dong all of them. But I'll do a few, because they made me lulz.


Sades, will you draw me a black cat hiding under a table with big sad eyes? That will basically be my cat that will.

See attachment 1. Was gonna do a cartoon style, ****ed it up, changed mind, had fun drawing a randomly googled cat. I drew in the basic rudimentary shape of a table, but erased it because it looked stupid and I didn't want to make it as detailed as I'd done the cat...

(tbh I don't think this cat looks much like your cat. It barely looks like the cat I'd based it off of. But it's still a cat! :p )

Shockwave shaving in the mirror, with a little razor attachment that fits over his arm cannon, as preparation for a little bit of war in the afternoon.

See attachment 2. Hound did that one.

It kinda looks to me like he's staring at the razor, wondering how the **** he's going to figure this one out...

What with having to look up reference material, these aren't going as quickly as I hoped... but I managed to get one "finished" during naptime, woot.

See attachment. Dark corner was a result of dark room, not thumbs. Was the only way I could get the flash to go off.

I probably could have added Soundwave's face in a thought bubble, now that I think of it... dammit.

Auntie Slag
2015-07-12, 11:07 AM
Ha ha, that's ace. I didn't figure on Soundwave having curtains with rose details, but it's certainly nice that he does. To all the world he's the (almost) archetypal Decepticon villian. Inside he's just a guy who enjoys soft furnishings and caring for his pet.

Skyquake87
2015-07-12, 08:38 PM
Of course Soundwave has curtains, its so he can peer through them and spy on the neighbours. I bet he has a well tended lawn and picket fence too. Lives next door to noisy family he can't stand "it was so peaceful until they moved in, they're really dragging the character of the neighbourhood down. And they shop at Lidl. I mean, ugh, can you imagine..."

Sades
2015-07-12, 09:54 PM
Honestly I was going to draw in some flowery printed wallpaper too. But (as I'm sure is pretty obvious) after I finished drawing Buzzsaw I kinda just wanted it done so I could get going on the chores/dinner. :lol:

I dunno if I'll have any drawings done today, got other things to do... I bought a pack of googly eyes at the dollar store earlier and Hound's got a lot of shit. I might need to go back for another.

Sades
2015-07-15, 06:41 AM
Yeah, the joke kinda fell flat. It made me a little sad inside, but also didn't stop me from chuckling quietly to myself when he finally opened his underwear/sock drawer.

"Aw... really?!" *grumble noises as he picks googly eyes off of every pair of undies and socks* :lol:

I don't have any drawings! Not finished ones.... so I'm just gonna post this little tiny sketch I've got sitting in my sketchbook. I might finish it, I might not. Hopefully I will. But it's one of the ones I'm leaning towards taking my time on.

(the "sketch" isn't very big. It's probably about as big as the top joint of a medium-sized thumb. I don't have a ruler handy I'm not going hunting for one so that's about as good an explanation as you're getting. :p )
