Thumb wrestling champion
Here's somethin' I pulled together over the weekend. The theme at work was "Pirates vs. Zombies" and Marshall actually had the same thumb wrestling idea. Pirates would win hands down. I don't know why I drew the zombies in the socks and underwear - that's just how I imagined them. Don't ask.
Coloring is always the funnest part for me. I don't usually have an idea of color when I'm drawing. It kinda just happens when I sit down at the computer and start playing. And once I have a couple colors I like, I'll try to play remaining colors off each other. What balances what works well together - really just trying to keep it appealing and not clash unless it's intentional. But I don't have much color theory in my head so it's all sorta made up as I go.
Anyway, my buddy Kurt found this picture of Ernest Borgnine that reminded him of the pirate here. Creepy similarities. Creepy pic. Kreep-EE.
