This Is What I Drew Sunday – August 30

Here are the top 3 “liked” pieces from yesterday’s all-day session of “What Shall I Draw Today?”

#1 - Ellie and Carl as kids from Up: suggested by LJ Mandap

#2 - Yoda versus Darth Vader and Darth Maul: suggested by Christine Dennis Merritt

#3 - Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot: suggested by LJ Mandap

And here is the whole Sunday set:

I think I’m ready for Long Beach Comic Con.

It’s not lost on me that this could be a sneaky way for folks to get free commission sketches (digitally through Facebook or Instagram). Given what’s readily accessible on the internet and sites like Deviant Art, “free” art is all over the place. I like to think of these as “suggested by” pieces rather than commissions, since I get to choose amongst the suggestions on what I spend time.

As usual the single and dual character pieces are drawn at collector card sizes of 2.5" x 3.5". The much larger pieces are at 5" x 7", a size chosen because I have clear binder sleeves with that size pockets (old style, jumbo photo size?). I doubt I’ll go bigger for a WSIDT piece. And before you all start getting a lot of crazy ideas with a gangs of characters and heaps props and extravagant backgrounds, I’ll say upfront, here and now, that you may suggest them, but I will not do it*.

For any one interested in purchasing one or more of these pieces of original art, you’ll have to catch up with me at one of my few comic convention appearances, like the upcoming Long Beach Comic Con.

Thank you once again to everyone who offered drawing suggestions and to those who voted with their Facebook and Instagram “likes.”

*Some things are deserving of breaking that rule, of course.
