Adventure Time!

I have become mildly obsessed with the show Adventure Time. So I decided to give myself the Adventure Time treatment!

The bushy unmanageable hair is so accurate…

I really love reading and have an actually unreasonable amount of books right now (my workplace gets sent tons of advance reader copies and employees are allowed to take them), so I thought it was only appropriate to draw myself on a pile of books. The books I drew are actually some of my favorite books, except for two made-up books (Hamlet is my favorite Shakespeare play, but to my knowledge, there is no such book as “Hamlet the Pig”) and, of course, a shout out to Adventure Time (first book). I also included my favorite animal, the jellyfish, on my shirt, holding a little balloon (how sweet!). I colored it with watercolor pencils, because…that’s basically all I have right now.

Here’s the line art (because why not):

Painting: Fitzroy, the King of Goldfish

Heavy is the head that wears the fancy crown.

So after a long break from painting, I jumped back in. Kind of. I oh-so-smartly left almost all of my watercolors behind while moving back (except for white and van dyke brown– good thinking, me!) so I had to crack into some watercolor pencils I’ve had lying around for a while. 

coloredpencilsTa-da!

You see how the top part has some words on it? Those would be the instructions. Which, in my excitement and haste, I neglected to read. So of course I dipped one of the pencils into the water and then wondered why it wasn’t working. Yeah, I know. Anyway, I still prefer watercolor paints to these pencils, but they’re a nice substitute for now. 

As for the fish up there, I think I might put in a background, but I think otherwise he’s done.
