Daily Creativity: Rory Grock Spock

Yesterday I got a crayola marker kit with 100 different colored markers. Now these are cheap markers but they have so many colors!!! So what do I test them out on? Not my adult coloring book that I bought them for, nope, by drawing a picture of Rory as if he were at a con wearing an I Grock Spock shirt.  Because there are so many colors I could use a lot to create depth where I just don’t have enough marker colors to do with my really expensive markers.

Of course I also used the wrong paper, but it was fun. I have this note book with unbleached paper that is super textured and I end up using it a lot even though it’s not right for a lot of projects. I just like the book. I’m pretty happy with how this came out though, he’s so cute.

I love drawing Rory as comic book characters, and each time I am surprised at how well it works out. This time I was working again with forced perspective, with the front on view of the guns. This is something I find very intimidating but I think I get better at it with each attempt. Watercolors on paper.

Daily Creativity: Steampunk Dragon Rory

A Steampunk Dragon you ask? I wanted to use my brown micron markers tonight, so I decided to draw something Steampunk. Rory is always a good subject so I thought, if Rory could build himself one thing in the steampunk world, what would it be? Steam wings of course. Originally I was going to only use ink, but when I finished outlining I wanted to paint it, but the paper I choose isn’t good for watercolors. So instead I used the right end of my colored pencils spectrum.

Daily Creativity: RWBY Tribute

RWBY tribute team NTJR (Nutty, Tek, Jason, Rory)Daily Creativity: RWBY Tribute

I love the show RWBY, if you don’t know how much, listen to this podcast episode where along with the Talk Nerdy 2 Me Podcast we discuss it in depth. Tonight Tek and I watched the Volume 3 finale, actually we watched the last three episodes of volume 3. It was so full of feels I must admit I was crying during the finale. Jason has been urging Tek and I to complete the series so we could talk about it. We barely touched on it, but we did discuss our counterparts in the show. Meet team NTJR (someone make up the team word for me please?) We all agree that with Velvet’s box weapon that power is defiantly my power.  Tek is the cyborg general, and Jason is a variation of Flint (we had to replace his trumpet with a cast iron skillet. Rory of course is a Grimm.

I had some difficulty with this piece. At first I was going to draw us all in a battle pose, but that was very tricky. One, fitting everything on one page and still keeping it a daily creativity. What I was planning would have ended up being a many day if not longer project. Another issue was turning Velvet into me. The character is not just slim, almost all of the characters are tiny, but she is one of the few who lacks curves. I am full of curves, I’m all curves. I’m fat, and round, and curvy, and not Velvet’s shape. So figuring that out with her battle costume was tricky. Her Beacon uniform would have been easier. I had it mostly down when I got the notion to do the four split screen image idea that the RWBY logo has.  Once I decided to go with that, everything got easier.

All told though I spent more hours on this than most Daily Creativity projects. Still, I’m happy with it, and it’s very personal to me. Sure, it’s fan art for an Anime, but it’s also a great story, and something I share with the friends in this piece.

Tonight’s drawing is inspired by two pairs of my favorite friends. I love Calvin & Hobbes and their friendship, and it reminds me a little of Rory & Tek’s. I’ve done something like this before, check out this daily creativity of them crossing a river. I like making the Imaginary character (Hobbes) here Tek, and making Rory the real boy (Calvin), flipping the script so to speak. I also love this kind of hug, it just makes me happy.
