Illustration Friday: Portrait

No, I wasn't terribly inspired by this topic, but I decided that I needed to treat it like a job and just get it done regardless of my lack of creative juices. Frickin' juices.

So, here's the first attempt:



clickable.

In my defense, it was a lot better in my head. Also, remember, I said I wasn't feeling very creative.

Then I started shape doodling and came up with this:



clickable.

The way I see it, if a teenager were able to set his head on fire and walk around like that all day, he would. I would have, and I'm not even named Bernie.

And the final one is from a couple years back. Iggy Pop:



not clickable.

In hindsight, it was stupid to stop his neck and hair above the level of his chin and that has been bothering me more each time I look at it. Oh well. If I ever really want to fix it at some point, I can.

I hope the next topic matches my interests a bit more. Then again, I didn't think "tea" would have worked worth a damn either.

Have a great weekend all.

Bernie reminds me of Cartman at the age of 30 - drunk off his ASS!

We'll see if this posts! Blogger hasn't liked me the last few days!

I have to say...I like all three of your portraits...even the first goofy one. I can see him talking in a cartoon telling his little brother, the popsicle stick...to go suck himself. And that second kid?...a little hot headed, eh?

Anyway...regardless of whether or not you are inspired with the topics...I feel your illos always come out fantastic!
