Today I thought I’d try to draw a few characters from a really cute cartoon called “The Fantastic Adventures of Unico”
I feel like this story speaks volumes, not only does it teach that we have the ability to spread happiness wherever we may be NO MATTER HOW GLUM the circumstances may be- It also teaches us that people with behavior that we find unsuitable or unpleasant are sometimes the people who need a friend the most because they are the ones who get in trouble because of being mislead by their whims!
Beezle was just downright abusive to unico… he had no idea how to be friends, he is a devil after all. But when it came right down to it, he made up an excuse to break his usual rules of conduct and he pulled through for unico when he was in danger!
Katy was an abandoned kitty with grand dreams of becoming a witch, she just wasn’t living in the “real world”. Katy seemed very selfish when they first met and one thing lead to another and then Katy was in danger despite unico’s good advice. She didn’t seem to have loyalty to anyone, not even herself. She redeems herself after a near fatal incident at a castle where unico and beezle make an appearance.
Lisa is playing with my stuffed sea serpent puppet when all of a sudden she notices that everybody is watching her! My daughter even does a cute voice for her while she is in “tongue stuck out funny face” awe.
Maybe she heard us talking about Bub the cat and was trying to steal his signature look and fame? Naaah.
Here is my Inktober drawing for today, it is the puppet stuffed animal that lisa was chewing on! Don’t worry he isn’t hurt/ripped/punctured. Anyhow I always thought this little guy was goofy looking and very cute at the same time. It was a gift from my mom 😀
Tonight I thought that I would try something different with my art. I drew the picture like usual.Then instead of doing my usual line shading for the background I cut out my drawing and then glued star shaped paper to a blank sheet and spray painted it black! After the spray paint dried I peeled off the stars and then taped on my drawing over the black, I really like how it turned out 😀
Just a side note: Please forgive the sillyness of my behind schedule posting, I post my art during the night and by the time I finish drawing and typing it is usually well past 12 midnight which makes it the next day even though I intended on posting this for the current day. I know it doesn’t really matter but I bet someone out there has noticed that I constantly appear to be a day behind.
Here is the upper portion of a unicorn drawing that I made. The body turned out too strange for me to continue working on it… guess thats a down side of using a pen for art.
Oh well, life goes on!
