oh water. the great equalizer. No matter how advanced we humans think we are up on land, there are still thousands of killing machines that cruise the waves in a world we know nothing about. We are defenseless in their realm.
Anyway, here's a jackass trying to scuba dive in a fishbowl. ENJOY!
So after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I have joined the week six sketch fray. I realize the quality of this one is somewhat less than usual, but I was trying to also explore some composition principles from Andrew Loomis's "Creative Illustration". You guys should check it out. It's a great book and you can find it fully digitized on the internet. Just google Andrew Loomis and it'll be one of the first three links.
Bak Mei or Pai Mei "white eyebrows" as you americans call him, was or is the greatest kung fu master to ever live when considering the Five elders. Basically I was already doing a potrait of Bak Mei so i slapped a banana on this unfinished portrait and called it a sketch.
People have always wondered the origins of things, like kung fu, bananas... or perhaps the first strawberry banana smoothie? Well those things are all in fact connected, and it was a fateful day for both the banana and the strawberry fighting duo on their duel above the icy blending pit. They both thought they would be the victor, but instead it was us and the delicious result of their epic battle.
Ok, ok...so sushi skills don't count as kung fu. My defense is that bananas aren't sushi and monkeys can't legally buy knives either, so just consider this an experiment in willing suspension of disbelief.
