“I’m a steampunk pixie, that’s who I am, I fry my frogs in a brass frying pan…”
-“Steampunk Pixie,” Frenchy and the Punk

Someone asked me if I’d ever done a mechanical or steampunk dragon. I have. But tonight I didn’t know what to draw, so I did this:

In a perfect world it would be a mechanical dragon wearing a top hat with goggles on it, but I didn’t have the time or the mental wherewithal to make that happen.

At one point today I started thinking that these line drawings were too simplistic. After really thinking about it, I decided that my first thought was wrong- they are very deliberate, and in fact in a majority of cases I don’t do any erasing- just plot lines and try to control my hands so that everything lines up.

The fact that it’s “easier” when I’m uninspired or tired doesn’t make it any less worthwhile, and I probably just need to be nicer to myself.

a firebreathing dragon's head. the dragon is saying "Growr!"

I’m not a fan of the most recent WordPress update- it keeps pulling the image information and trying to make it into captions. It’s quite annoying.

The Chronicles of Stick Dragon, Part II.

I did wonder a bit whether or not this dragon lived in a stick figure world with other stick figures or if it was unique in its stickfigureness.

The Chronicles of Stick Dragon, Part I.

I thought it might be interesting to keep playing around with the stick figure dragon from yesterday.

Any sort of coin hoard would have gobbled up the single-lined elegance of the stick figure, so like any good villain, the dragon keeps their (I haven’t decided on gendering yet) wealth in a bag with a dollar sign on it.

Sticks and Stones.

It was a pretty hectic day of Family Emergencies, but everyone is okay. The Fiancee said I was “her rock” due to my unflappability in a crisis, so it seems reasonable that I would draw a stick figure:

In hindsight, I probably should have put some stick horns/fins on this dragon, but I was a little more concerned with the question of does a stick figure dragon have a circular head or not.

And as an aside: does numbering and nomenclature matter? “The Resurrection” has been going on since April- how long does it keep going? And even when it stops, do we go back to “Dragon-A-Day? I’m very much undecided.

Dragon-A-Day, the Resurrection, Day 31: Curfew.

05222019 - Curfew.

I don’t know why the visual shorthand for all-out running involves the arms stuck straight out, but it sells it. Anyhow, I need some sleep.
