Commission - Sketchbook - Sketches from Jury Duty
So I have two sketchbook commissions, one is themed, one is not really all that themed. The one where I can go crazy and do whichever is the one I took with me to Jury Duty last week and it belongs to danielcoon. Here are some sketches I did while waiting to (not) be picked.


Another take on the California State Seal featuring poppies and a quail because I seriously think the original is lacking. I love my state so much...

"Waschbaer" is the German word for "raccoon" and I was told it is because they vaguely look like little bears and they were once thought to wash whatever they were eating in water first (due to the thought they didn't have saliva or something like that). Germans have funny names for animals..."washing bear" (raccoon), "stink animal" (skunk), "beak animal" (platypus)...

I don't even know what spawned this. Maybe I secretly want to be the dimwitted mount of an apple hunting raccoon. (DON'T EVEN SAY IT I know that was kind of dirty..shut up judge!)

Oh god, the raccoon screaming for Niko to stop looks like me when I went horseback riding last weekend. >_> My life flashed before my eyes. Sadly it was mostly filled with tv reruns. Your sketches are totally FAB.

Its okay...at least you don't relate stories to others that actually happened to other people on TV shows as if they were part of your own personal history.

Niko: Hey guys lemme tell you about the time I jumped the shark
People: That was Fonzie.
Niko: oooooh yeeeeeeah :(

Yeah, they really do need to update that seal o.0 I know you were keeping the scale the same as theirs, but I have to admit the huge woman and tiny bear are a little o.0 at first ^ ^;;

Grümpf washbaer! XD

At least he's not hunting cherries XD
That's adorable! And WAHAHHAHA "PLAY?!!" (best part of that film, and it was a good film overall too!) Luv the frantic digging too XD

The Racoon stuff has a very "Wallace Trip" feeling, llike it's from a book of nonsense poetry. It's adorable stuff. The othe4r things is your "Cartoon style" is becoming very very solid.

Wallace Trip is a favorite.

Wow!!! ... Awesome!!! the Californian Seal is wonderful! =)
is there any paritcular meaning behind the image?

... and those sketches are so funny!

My favourite is the first one: "charge" ;D
and the last one ("play") reminds to me my sweet doggy DIVA ... when she wants to take a walk or eat something; :P XD

i know they do it, but i dont think its because they lack saliva is what I guess I'm saying. Coons are WEEEEIRD.

We do it because it feels good.

I would love to be able to be artistic. I would have not been so bored out of my mind at jury duty when I went if I had the ability to draw well. :0)
