Through some bizarre twist of fate, my friend/summer roommate Mike and I ended up with the same co-op job – drawing cartoony kids and animals for Junior Jetsetters. Because this is kind of outside our own, normal styles we decided we’d do a weekly challenge, for kicks and portfolio pieces. This was the first challenge and, although he doesn’t know it, it’s all Jesse’s fault. Really.
It’s weird for me to draw something so unabashedly sexy; that’s usually not my thing. But every once in a while, it’s nice to make friends with the tropes I usually battle against and just do something fun.
Oh, and the eyes? Well, if I didn’t bite the trope that feeds me and try to subvert at least a LITTLE, well, I wouldn’t be me.
Check out Mike’s shot here. It’s a bit NSFW. Week 2 challenge? The 1920’s! GO!
