Muskie Soaky



I don't know how, but somehow the one on the left crawled up the page a centimeter, ya...



John has been drawing his Topcat bowling pin toy constantly, so here's my stab at my Muskie soaky. Stab, stab...stab.

Oh yeah! Steve Worth put up my little Feedback thing on the ASIFA Hollywood site here!

Hey Kali.. looks good. One thing you can do to avoid your side view from creeping up is to get your ruler out and really draw some straight lines on a piece of tracing paper or something. Draw a line straight across from every major point (head, eyes, nose, chin, neck, waist, etc..) Its kind of tedious but it really helps! Keep up the training!

I CAN SEE YOU ON THE RIGHT KALIIIIIII.......

HAHAHA

NICE, C'YA!

Nico said...

KALI-

hah, i wondered why John was drawing a Topcat toy, rather than the character, on our pizza mats.

It didn't occur to me that drawing toys is dimension practice! w00t!

I like your Muskie!

Ya, I totally just winged it so, it moved haha.

Paul: oops! There I am! The secret revealed!

Nico: isn't drawing on Pizza mats fun? YES.

I think the Soaky just levitated on you. It was nothing you did wrong. :/

David Germain said...

Wow! Back in the good old days you could buy a Soaky figurine of a relatively obscure character like Muskie. Nowadays, you can't even find Looney Tunes on TV.

What a stupid world.

Hey, Kali. Nice job!
Hey, you have some really cool toys too!

And John draws Top Cat toys on paper placemats with pizza and onions! Good times!

Hi, Kali!!!
Good to comment your blog again.
I can see that u do not stop creating things.
Keep on truking, sweetheart. Blesses!!

Taber said...

This seems like a really clever excercise... maybe I'll go dig up some old toys. Thanks for the idea! (even though I know John got there first)

Hi, Kali! I don't know if I've commented on your blog before, but I really enjoy reading it. You're a great young cartoonist!

I've been thinking about getting some old cartoon toys and soakys off of ebay, to make my still life assignments more interesting. There's only so many times you can draw a glass bowl and battered styrofoam cone before it starts to get boring. :/

Where do you get your stuff? I've already checked all of my local antique shops, they've got nuffin.'

PIZZA

Kali Fontecchio said...

Nico: "PIZZA" - haha, very funny. I GET IT, I'm Italian and you're taunting me!

Sarah: "Where do you get your stuff?"

Hi Sarah! Thanks for the kind words. I goto flea markets to get my crap. Every Sunday, no really.

Parker: "Keep on truking, sweetheart."

I'll try!

Jorge Garrido said...

That's a REALLY accurate drawling! Oh, and flea markets RULE.

Nico, careful, Kali has mafia connections. One time I told her I wouldn't comment on her blog and she sent eight of ther paisanos to give me a beat down!

Luckily I was able to use the terrain of the land to my advantage and live to see another day, but I still had my eyealls gouged out with a gelato scoop.

Octo said...

Katie Rose said...

Colter said...

Nico: "PIZZA" - haha, very funny. I GET IT, I'm Italian and you're taunting me!


Wooo GO ITALIANS!

I'm Italian also, actually Sicilian. My family came from the turd that the boot is kicking. Not surprised.

Your blog's counter is one digit longer today. Didn't know if you noticed.

Nico said...

BUT KALI-

I'm italian too. We're both italian, hardcore. We talked about this in the car, remember?? You flipped around and said "You are??"
