Not Imaginary.

Unicorns are not imaginary.  They just made up that rumor after people found out that they tasted like bacon.

This is why I should not procrastinate and do my sketch blog picture while sleep deprived and over-tired....

Challenge: Imaginary

First of all, thanks to those who have drawn and stuck around. A BIG thank you to Lisa Price for helping with posting the Retro challenge while I was too busy being overwhelmed by Class 2. But hey, this is a new semester with a new schedule and new drawing challenges! Yay!

Draw the dream! Our new theme is...

Retro AM

Ha! I thought we were to apply the theme to Spike! Oh well! It was fun to sketch this up anyway!
I took a lot of inspiration from the early Mickey Mouse cartoons and retro Disney memorabilia, as well as some of that 70's retro style for the font. I figured I'd make it like an old postcard or collector's image for AM if it were around back then. Kinda like finding an old Disneyland postcard now and getting that nostalgia feeling that comes with that cool retro style.

Retro-"This is Bob Barker, reminding you to help control the pet population..."

There aren't many things more retro to me than The Price is Right.  It was always a dream of mine to go on the show and meet Bob, and maybe play some Plinko.  Unfortunately that dream will never be....

At first, I wasn't sure what to do but then I remembered: I just made this Terra sprite not too long ago out of perler beads. I need more of those so I can make the whole set.

Happy 25th Anniversary, Link!

Can't go wrong with classic Zelda! Always wanted the old Gleeoks to reappear in a full 3D game too. Maybe in Skyward Sword... fingers crossed.

Monday, February 14, 2011


Theme for this next challenge is:

Do you have a favorite classic game? Are you still a fan of the Walkman? This time around, we're celebrating any and all things retro so getting sketching and have fun!

Drawings are due in 2 weeks on February 27th! And as always, everyone is welcome to do past challenges as well.

Note: Katie's been pretty busy with her new job so I offered to jump in and help her out. If you guys have any theme ideas you'd love to seen in a future poll, let one of us know.


It's not easy.

Green and Gold

I have been a bad sketcher. But I saw this challenge (about an hour and a half before it was due) and couldn't let the opportunity pass. I've frankly been waiting for an excuse to draw everyone's favorite green Starfleet cadet. I've sworn off pencils for a while. I erase and redo lines too much.

In hindsight, I shoulda done the Hulk. Photoshop coloring practice here.

I'm bad with abstract ideas so nothing creative or elaborate this week.

One of my resolutions for this year is to not let work take control of my life.  I work at a Dairy Queen (hence the annoying mouth mascot) full time-soon to be part time, to pay for school.  It can often be physically and emotionally draining what with the delights of customer service and the high turnover rates, and it often leaves me with no energy to do the actual schoolwork that I’m working to be able to do in the first place.  This year my goal is to worry less about work and focus more of my time and energy on animation mentor and just generally not getting completely burnt out.

I also really dislike that mouth mascot…. :)

This is brilliant, Hope all you guys are having fun!

Challenge: Resolution

Welcome back Sketch Squad and Happy New Year!

To start off, we're going to have some minor changes here at Spike's Sketch Squad to help boost the time for folks to draw. Some are cosmetic around the site. But the big one...Challenges will now be bi-weekly and also artists are encouraged to revisit past challenges if they so desire.

We'd also like to encourage everyone to comment, comment, comment! Treat this blog as a part of your "Post 5" and let's work together to build a stronger, constructive community.

Now that the deadlines have extended for challenges, let's talk about the quality of our submissions. Please work hard to submit a drawing you are proud to post and get feedback on. I understand quick sketches, but let's boost to rendered drawings or colored pieces. Let's push ourselves to draw at the level we want to be at, not just to have something to turn-in.

This term's challenge will begin with the theme of...


Drawing your resolution can be a part of making it happen. Visualize, then realize! This challenge is due Sunday, January 16th.
