holden doodles during class DON'T TELL THE TEACHER
like, when i'm not doing classwork or scratching poetry in the margins of old assignments*
this thread is kind of a *build up* or whatever for the hourly-comic buzz on Feb 1st; most of the doodles i'm posting right now are super old though
this is Julius, a character from a story i wrote; i drew this before i did the story though; so, 2010?; but it was colored last year; so
this is super old; to be found nestled in one of my earlier poetry books; colored last year
this is me as a... muppet? idunnoman
no one understands my dark and tortured soul
(somewhat related: it rained today; it was very light and pleasant)
this is a girl with a book
i call her Girl With A Book
Self Portrait, #4
theresa was giving me pointers on things ages ago and this is a result of some of those
i didn't draw this but i'm going through my photobucket and ♥♥♥♥, it's the dark lord voldemort with justin bieber's hair! i *had* to post it, guys! (note: i did make this though, putting the hair on voldy)
i dunno what this is exactly but HE HAS GREEN HAIR WTF
we were talking about the American Civil War in my AP US History class (boooore) and i was just, like, super inspired by their sideburns, honest
this is Space Kid, Defender of Space
again, just going through my photobucket and i found this old SotW entry and i had to pause for a moment and admire it
I made this a few months before the end of last year. Then I went through and finished it today, because that's how I make mixes a lot of the time. I kind of put it together, base it around a song or two, and then let it develop.
This one in particular is based on a central thematic, so that none of the songs are necessarily in the same style or anything.
The cover I just kind of threw together from little scribbles I had, and then I dotted the whole thing with +'s and -'s. So.
This started out as me trying to achieve a certain, frantic, ROCK AND ROLL, in your face kind of thing. But then I kind of stepped back and threw in some songs to slow it down at some points, and make it all a little more well-rounded.
I wanted the cover to be really ironic, so the font is comic-sans and the title is silly. I was originally going to use Roman numerals for the track listing, but then I thought "nah". I threw the art on after planning out everything else. It's just kind of random and yeah. The sun-thingy is a lot older than the rest of the doodles though.
Image-manip + digital art (from over the past year or so):
Eddplant chose not to have any artwork for his EP, Picture Unrelated, and encouraged fans to make up their own. This is the one I use. He actually featured it (among many others) on his tumblr, which was kind of cool.
I like the idea of having a book with both writing and drawings/doodles in it; but I can't seem to bring myself to do much other than short notes in my sketchbook. Maybe if I start writing a story (like for a comic), I'll be more inclined to do it.
