It seems like Mr. Nice Guy has been getting a lot of time in the spotlight, Time to draw Lisa and Kyoko!
Sometimes it seems like Lisa thinks she is getting recognition or praise when I talk to her about a thing that she is doing… such as sitting on my drawing paper! Its hard to be upset with Lisa because she just seems so innocent and playful.
Then there is our sweet boy Kyoko…
He often reminds me that his dish is empty, that he really wants me to feed him. Some of the looks he gives are so pitiful that he sometimes almost gets a second meal from another family member because they think he hasn’t been fed. But thats not all there is to his character, just one of the things he enjoys. Another favorite past time is lots and lots of cuddles and nose smears!
Here is another of those drawings of Mr. Nice Guy and what I suppose he does while he is outside.
Nice Guy and Seven (Our neighbor’s cat!) are watching the stars at night together. Maybe they get to see shooting stars streak across the night sky?
I made this fluffy white dragon last summer and was inspired to name it after Ken Sugimori, he designed and drew all of the original 151 Pokémon himself!
I have always really liked how he drew pokemon and I still have many of the trading cards with his art. My favorite!
So now that you have been introduced, here are my drawings:
Sugimori, the dragon, is a mythical cloud dragon who is seen as a mist by humans. He “eats” moisture from the air through his fur and flies around humming to himself, never opening his mouth… because he doesn’t really have one.
He is clearly in a hurry, floating off to someplace.
Here he is resting on a mountain and valley, while at the same time he absorbs the mist from a nearby river. So sleepy. Of course to us humans, he would only appear to be morning fog.
NOW! For some pictures of Lisa with Sugimori 😀
Me: “What do you think of him Lisa?”
Lisa: *Screaming* “SUGIMORI!!!”
Lisa: “Well, I didn’t mean for you to set it on me…”
I wanted to make an attempt to draw a peacock, like the ones I saw this summer!
A funny thing happened when I got too focused on drawing this picture:
Now this may seem accurate if you hadn’t just spent a ton of time on google looking at peacock pictures…
But once I finished and took another look at my drawing I realized that I drew its head too big, whoops! It was so cute that I must have looked too close and forgot to resize it to the paper as I drew. If that makes any sense at all.
Here is a real picture of a peacock I took for reference:
Anyways, I shrunk its head on my computer:
Thats better! Isn’t technology wonderful?
I wanted to draw a seahorse, but just about halfway through drawing this picture I realized that it looks a lot more like a sea dragon… Whoops!
Either way I’m happy with how it turned out, despite the lack of environment to swim around in.
I decided to draw Uni with a kitty who looks somewhat like my girl cat, Lisa.
Much like Lisa, this kitty wants to go everywhere with her friend!
They are unstoppable when they are together!
Except when one of them gets sick… Then they are stopped temporarily!
When kitty gets better its all headbonks and purrs from there!
It was hard to choose which animal to draw next besides cats, of course. So I chose the puppy of the sea: A seal!
He says “What are you doing in the water, funny human? Did you bring me some fish?”
Every time I see a squirrel wandering around sniffing the ground and pausing I wonder if this is what they are thinking?
I know I would forget where I bury things, but I’m guessing survival and hunger are stronger motivators for remembering things. I just love their little fingers and bushy tails!
