Happy Birthday, Will Friedle!

It’s Will’s 35th birthday today! I’ve decided that in addition to going to work & memorizing lines & fighting my traffic ticket in court today, I would celebrate his birthday by drawing some main characters he had voiced & listening to “He’s So Fine” by The Chiffons on repeat. Then I’m going to watch my favorite episode of Boy Meets World, which is What A Drag where he dresses up as a damn hot lady. I might even buy some birthday fruit basket cake from Schubert’s and eat it too. Yum.

I really enjoyed drawing these characters but it took me 17 hours and that’s a lot of time to be doodling. I may not be a real sketch artist but it was fun to try. I really hated coloring it though. Looks like it was done by a 12-yr-old. This was my first time coloring anything this large and in colored pencils. I was going to leave it in black & white but my cousin, who’s an aspiring anime artist, told me things always look better in color. Damn him for saying that. Damn him a lot because I totally ruined some parts that could have been avoided. Oh well, life isn’t perfect and neither is my coloring inside the lines. Anyway, happy birthday Will!! If you ever read this, I just want to say hi, how are you?

I’m really enjoying my Freehand Drawing class. I’m amazed at what I’m learning as a first time sketching student. My teacher is in a wheelchair and he is so passionate about drawing. He’s got so many stories to tell & he’s such a comedian. He’s taught me a lot about drawing, things I never knew. A lot of tips & tricks that I’ve never heard of before. For example, a regular person is usually seven heads long while a fashion model is about 9 heads long. My cousin disagrees and says that superheroes are 9 heads long while fashion models are 7.5 heads long. Either way, it’s more than 7 heads. I guess when I decide to venture into drawing lots of fashion models and superheroes, I’ll climb that mountain then and make a solid decision.

Here’s a sample of some of the things I’ve been doodling. It’s not the best but gimme a break, I’ve never done this before! I think I’ll give my artwork dramatic names like real artists do, just for fun.

And lastly, my favorite:

Just a note on Childhood, I drew that one during my Boy Meets World marathon. That should explain why Ron Stoppable & Terry McGinnis are there. ;0)
