Magic Hands!

Quick and dirty (<5 min sketch) of Dr. Strange for a fan art Friday thing on a Google+ community I'm in. I actually have another sketch as well that I did first, but I wasn't too happy with it. Not happy with this one either, but I get that I'm learning, and hopefully, improving.

So...Cumberbatch as Strange? Eh. I actually really dug Joaquin Phoenix as the master of the mystic arts, but senior Cumby is a rising star these days. I just hope Marvel chooses the right one for the role, but so far they've been pretty spot on with their casting (film-wise, anyway). Trust the, House of Ideas. Truuuuusssssssssst

Traffic parrot is watching you.
I get my inspiration from the strangest of places...this post-it parrot came about from watching someone's left blinker/tail-light winking at me in traffic this morning. Lately I've been looking at everyday objects a bit differently, especially at cars (when you've got a limited view and you're stuck in traffic, well...yeah). Sometimes I sketch the backs of cars, with their funky shaped (and very often, eye-shaped) taillights and rear ends. Amazing how human beings just like to put faces on things...ALL the things.

I can't imagine how we'd react if we actually saw aliens that were humanoid in appearance. Oh, wait. Spiders. (BURN EVERYTHING). Giant Squid. (sucker on this harpoon, beaky!)

On InterGalactic News at Star Rotation New Kid on the block, Earth, decimated when they attempted to destroy visiting $#$#$#$# (language unknown) dignitaries.

Yeah, my brain goes to weird places.
