Rarely nowdays I get keen or inspired to sketch on my work breaks or on the train. Over the last few months, I found that train ride presents awesome opportunity to catch another hour of sleep in the morning and to inform myself about latest disasters, economic gloom and celebrity twat tweets from a free newspaper distributed to all on the evening ride. And I usually spend my lunch breaks drinking cheap cranberry juice and desperately scratching lottery tickets in a vain hope to get myself out of a financial hole I somehow got myself in. So far to no avail, but the sleeping hour does work.
Anyhow, today was different. I went over to the CG Hub as I often do, to get my daily feed of sweet art, and I saw an invitation to the drawing jam.
Now, I am aware of existance of drawing jams at various boards for over a decade now, but I never felt like taking a part in one of them. Not because I think they are beneath me but simply because I am lazy and can not commit to taking part in anything that has a deadline, as I always fail to meet it and end up in despair and depression.
But this time I read the title and I laughed and remembered the days when i used to draw this stuff to amuse myself.
I think that the topic was suggested by my distant friend ( I hope I can call him that) and the guy who inspired me to start drawing when I was a kid- Goran Delic.
Topic was "Noah's ark rejects", and it is related to all the possible species to whom Noah rejected place on his ark at the time of the flood.
When I read it, some door in my head opened and I picked a ballpoint pen and started doodling.
Results are rough and not fit for the jam, but I sure had more fun than in a loong time.
Anyhow, below are the sketches, the longest took about 15 minutes, not that it matters.
Tinted and shaded just a bit in PS.
And that is it for today,
Cheers to all,
