THE LEAD POETS SOCIETY OCT. 11, 2006
"DANCE MAGIC, DANCE!"
Well, I have one more day of inking left on Spider Clan. I'm almost there baby...fuck, I can taste it. Then, you'll start to see some more posts, I swear.
Tonights theme was given by Mike Stadler (I think that is his last name...I'm an ass, I know.) the Theme was "A villian from any movie pre dating 1990". Very broad, but more difficult than you think. We did throw some rules in. We couldn't draw from movies or themes that we would draw all the time. Tim could not draw Zombies and Slasher guys, because that's his thing, he draws them all the time, etc.
I chose The Goblin King from the Labryinth. I love that movie. The designs are great, David Bowie's package is a huge focus...I mean Jennifer Connely is hot, not the Bowie thing. Anyway, i thought I had a great idea. But the hard part was remember his design with out reference. Really though right? I know. All I could remember was a cape, big hair, and slightly gay. Oh, and the cool orb. So, i just winged it. I planed on drawing all the goblins, but we were running our mouths tonight, so when it got late, I thru in the black and called it a night.
Something that I've noticed from all my Lead Poets Society drawings, they are great thumbnails, or ideas for future finished pieces. So, after awhile, I might start taking these and doing some fully realized drawings out of them. Maybe put a book out with them side by side. Might be cool. who knows.
So, enjoy the Voodoo, You do, Who do, You do, the Power of the Babe!
