Since wordplay and goofy juxtaposition seemed to work so well previously, I decided to ease into the week by having a some fun with a little overly-literal interpretation.
What if the disarming spell didn't work quite the way that we think it does?
"It's only a flesh wound..."
By this point, my brother had discovered that this project was underway and he started to offer a number of ideas of his own. He was most insistent about this one.
This is arguably one of the strangest things I've ever drawn, which in the context of this project is probably saying something.
Earlier in the week, a friend on Twitter suggested that I draw something to do with Thor.
This was a very broad request and it took a couple of days to come up with something. Even so, this was done rather on-the-fly. In free-associating, there seemed to be something of a connection with Rapunzel, particularly the one from Tangled, what with the flowing blond hair, the fondness for blunt instruments...
I'm still not entirely sure if it makes any sense, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out!
|"I wear a cunning hat now. Cunning hats are cool."|
Since the beginning, I've wanted to draw the Doctor going hat shopping and to have him wind up with Jayne's hat.
What I hadn't considered was how many hats and pieces of headgear I would have to leave out because they just wouldn't fit.
Post-its are small, you guys.
I miss including the Sorting Hat most of all.
In my mind, Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas both exist in the same world (the Selick-verse?) and it's such a shame that they're so rarely brought together.
I should think Coraline's skepticism of Sally is well-justified.
Also, it was fun to draw a bit of background scenery!
In honor of the Iron Man 3 premiere a few days earlier: The Iron (Man) Giant.
(Hooray for more scenery!)
Men in Black and The Princess Bride are two of my favorite movies. I will watch them pretty much whenever they're on. I just had to have the Men in Black meet the Man in Black.
"From now on, you will be referred to only as 'R'."
"No one would surrender to the 'Dread Pirate R'"
"Sure they would! Arr!"
(There was also temptation to include The Woman in Black, but that just seemed...silly?)
Working on Week 3, the fun of trying to outdo each previous entry, or at least make them different, definitely outweighed any "stress" (and really, how stressful could drawing goofy pictures be?). However, it also required much more time. As the ideas have become more elaborate, so have the drawings and more time is needed to to plan and think and draw. This has been a tricky aspect of the challenge since Week 1 and, by now, the 15 minute guideline is pretty much gone in favor of ensuring something (hopefully) decent is posted every day. Increasingly, though, there has been the risk that the drawings won't be done in time! There were a couple of close calls this week and it's definitely something to keep in mind as I approach Week 4.
The final stretch approaches. So many ideas still to do and so many more yet to discover! (Perhaps this project might even be extended?) As always, suggestions and feedback are welcome here or on Twitter (@TeamStripeySock)!
