Jack Miller Portrait
"Jack Miller Portrait"
I practiced my line work with this earlier tonight. This is of course Jack Miller, from my comic strip titled The Drawing Board. I'm working on improving my lines. One thing I did differently with this was that I didn't draw the lines below his eyes. I think it may have have made some of my characters look older than they were supposed to. I also left off the thick outline that I've been drawing cartoon characters with. I'm not sure which is better, a thick outline or a thin one. But anyway, I did this partly as practice, and partly just to have something to draw.
My sister made some decorations for my birthday using a machine that makes cutouts of silhouettes. One of the things she made was of The Punisher symbol. It already looked cool, but I photoshopped it, and I think this looks cool too. I like how the skull has a metallic look to it. My sister made the cutout of The Punisher skull with a foil-like paper, which has adhesive on the back. She put that on a black paper circle. The paper is more or less like you'd use for a scrapbook. It's one of my favorite decorations she made. Below is a picture of the decoration.
Happy Earth Day! It's great that the Earth became livable eons ago and that we came into existence on it. Different people have different ideas of how we came into existence on it, but I think the important thing is that we live on a beautiful planet that has pretty much everything a human being could want or need. Earth is awesome!
