Friday NIGHT post
I know I'm surprised as you are that I'm not out drinking rum and commiserating with fellows about how bad Stranger Tides probably is but circumstances prevented sufficient enthusiasm from being generated hence I stayed in, stripped wallpaper out of my stinky steamer trunk and did some drawings. I must say I totally chickened out on the bottle imps. I really wanted to do watercolour paintings of them but I'm a traditional media wussy. I think it's a good rule to never start out with a new (ish) medium with a really specific idea of how you want it to turn out or you'll just end up fighting and fighting and fighting and probably storming away and doing it digitally anyways. Also I should probably try and fix the second imp so that his tail is sticking out through a hole in the cork otherwise why's he still in there when he's so grumpy!
Adding another stab at Dow. Another swing and a miss. He keeps coming out like a Stabbington Brother and then I overwork him to make him not a Stabbington brother. One day, Black Dow, I will draw you properly.
