May Manga Mania Day 29

Everyday_mini I'm still a day behind, bummer….  Today's drawing is a request/dare from my second oldest son.  When I first started drawing manga he asked if I could draw a chibi version of a Predator.  I told him that I was willing to try if he could find a good refence photo.  He started searching the net and I thought he'd end up bringing me a movie still or promo shot.  Instead, he came back with this little AVP Scar Predator toy with a huge bobbly, chibi style head.  Cool!  We searched for a few more closeups of weapons and armor today then it was off to the drawing board, literally<G>.  This is the result, definitely a little different…  MMM has become quite the family affair here, with the whole gang helping and encouraging me.  As Rachel said, "Who'd have thunk it!!"MayManga029    PS . Kiddo #2, I love you too dude!!

May Manga Mania Day 28

Everyday_mini It is a day late, but here is MMM#28. This is for my oldest son, a Teen Titan fan.  We spent a lot of time together on the 28th looking for just the right shot of the characters before deciding on the opening credit screen.  Between that search and the actual drawing of the group it took two days to finish!!  It was worth it to be able to draw his request.MayManga028 I love you, kiddo!!!!!

May Manga Mania Day 19

Everyday_mini Who knew drawing manga could be so cathartic? Drawing this little irate character let me vent some frustration at three very loud and very rude ladies from the opposing team last night. I understand that at the games parents want to support their children and get caught up in the excitement. However, when the cheering turns malicious and you are doing unsportsmanlike things such as taking flash photos repeatedly from behind home plate after dark in an effort to distract the batters, that is going a little too far. I felt a lot better after my little chibi got done yelling at them to grow up and behave!!!MayManga019
