Thank goodness for that…Thank you to everyone who sent a hamster in! I hope it amused people. These winter months can get so gloomy…sometimes you just have to try and have a bit of fun.
I was going to draw one last one, but I haven’t been too well. So…yeah. I feel a little disappointed with myself actually. I will at least draw things that are NOT hamsters from now on though.
Here are all the hamsters I made this month!
Here are all the lovely guest hamsters by Robert Barnett, Robbie Douglas, Peter Harrington, Inkan and Mike Dietz!
Finally, a last reminder about Doug TenNapel’s second Sketchbook Archives Kickstarter – You can only get a book if you pitch in for one – it’s a limited print-run sort of thing, so please don’t miss out on that. Continue reading
Well…day fifteen almost didn’t happen…
But enough of that…here we go. Not a painting or a drawing today – something a little different! I really needed a rest yesterday…unfortunately that rest involved Minecraft: the ultimate in obsessive compulsive disorder sand-box gaming.
At first, I thought nothing of it. Oh I’ll just potter about a bit…make a herd of wild horses, a teapot house…explore a little. It’s like pixel art in 3D. I don’t like the Creepers or zombies, so I turn them off.
Before I knew it, I got to building a giant Earthworm Jim riding a charging hamster.
I’ve been trying to catch up on work over the weekend…then today was a little hectic, so I didn’t get a hamster done.
Luckily two awesome friends sent hamsters in! Thank you Inkan and Peter.
This is Peter Harrington’s Hamster!
In other news, some really cool add-ons, tiers and stretch goals have been added to Doug TenNapel’s Sketchbook Archives book two Kickstarter! Continue reading
Mike Dietz sent in another gorgeous illustration of a hamster today – Thank you Mike!
Here’s my hamster today – Earthworm Jim and Snott on a rearing hamster.
I’m still working on Number 12…I’ve been a little too busy to get around to drawing a hamster today…I will post one up later.
Mike Dietz’s Hamster!
A lovely hamster looking alert.
Mike Dietz is currently busy making Armikrog. with Ed Schofield and more awesome people.
Robert Barnett’s Hamster!
A cuddly hamster eating a sunflower seed. My hamster does that.
Robbie Douglas’s Hamster!
Robbie turned the world upside-down, and drew Earthworm Jim carrying a hamster!
Didn’t feel too great yesterday…missed a day. Oh well. Bring on today.
Earthworm Jim getting attacked by a giant sea monster, his trusty hamster to the rescue.
A silly little doodle.
In other news, Doug TenNapel’s Five Iron Frenzy cover has been revealed. You can view it on their blog.
Also don’t forget to check out his second Sketch book Kickstarter if you haven’t heard of it yet. Tell your friends too…it’s not going to be a regular book-shop kind of book, that’s the only way to get a copy.
Hamster number 10!
Earthworm Jim hanging on to a hamster…probably yelling “Whoa Nelly!”. I’ve drawn similar pictures in the past I guess.
I used to run back to the hamster in Earthworm Jim 1 just to ride on it again back in the day. Wish there had been more hamster stuff in Down the Tubes.
I went back to my Traditional watercolours and a little acrylic paint for this one.
A couple of things that popped up today.
Hamstober day nine – Earthworm Jim leaning on a hamster. Pastel pencil on blue card.
I might have a breather over the weekend on this…I have some work to catch up on anyhow. More next week.
Here’s an extra I did on one of those scraper foil craft boards – a hamster coming to a sudden stop – seems fitting.
Hamstober day Eight – A traditional medium one today. I got the pastel pencils out and did this on some red card last night.
Oh dear…it’s not been a good day for drawing…let alone squeezing something out for Hamstober. One of those days where it rains and you have to do a bazillion other things that are not this, then panic because it’s already gotten too late. I’m frazzled.
I found a quickie I made a couple of days ago, instead.
