Jolly Roger

A little drawing fun, inspired by Madame Chiang's comment on a previous post.

I drew this mostly from memory, so understandably there's a lack of accurate detail. Also, my drawing hand is rusty.

I've always found skeletons to be good fun to draw. Posed in any number of zany positions, my bony ghouls usually come out kooky and not menacing.

An old incident from childhood: my sister and I used to draw on the walls of our old house. We draw a lot. One time, I drew a skeleton and I made my sister cry when I told her it would come alive later that night. Yes, I am such a meanie.

The other reason you're seeing this now is that, at long last, I got my old Plustek scanner working with Linux. The wonderful folks of the SANE project have finally come up with a working back-end for it.

News like that, I could dance, too.

(Oh, and I got my model skeleton's leg changed at the toy shop.)

  1. OK...now I really don't understand why you bought the skeleton...your excuse was so that your drawings would be anatomically correct...but you say this latest sketch was from memory!!!!!!

    It just proves that 'the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys'!!

  2. But...but...but...see! it's not accurate! And that's why I need my model :-))

    And since the price of the skeleton was P400, I think that puts me squarely in the category of...oh, I won't say it.
