Kendo

Day 113 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

I am sorry to say that none of yesterday’s subjects spiked my interest.
Partly because some i have already done and some are a spin-off of what i’ve done.
So i had to dig into my archive to pull out this Kendo practitioner.

Practicing Kendo is a way to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana such an artist disciplines him- or herself through the application of the principles of the pencil or brush.

Skepta

Day 109 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

Skipped another first comment to go to the 3rd one.
@callum_mw dropped Skepta onto my plate.
For those who don’t know him he is an English rapper, grime artist, MC, songwriter.
I tried to keep his portrait as grimy and raw as possible.

Konami Metal Gear Snake

Day 108 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

I skipped the first comment “Ze Germans” for the second one by @harryfigga “Konami MetalGear Snake”.

I am a huge Metal Gear fan, i played it when it first released in 1987 on the Philips MSX2 machine under the name “Metal Gear” and got hooked.
Soon after that the 2nd one came on the MSX2 before the series moved to the Playstation 1 as the third one named “Metal Gear Solid”.
That particular game got played to death and me and my brothers-in-law made a competition who could play the entire game in the minimum time which was around 40 minutes.

“Metal Gear 2: Sons of Liberty” sucked major balls because it replayed “Solid” but with a different character. Pretty disappointing move from Konami.

Nowadays i don’t have enough time to game anymore but “Metal Gear 3: Snake Eater” and “Metal Gear 4: Guns of the Patriots” are lying around in case i get the urge to game again.

Also the art done by Yoji Shinkawa for the Metal Gear series is mindblowing. He draws with a brushpen something i really need to get the hang of it (this is one done using only a Sharpie fine point).

So thank you @harryfigga for this excellent subject.

Wile E. Coyote

Day 107 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

@ratna81 chose Wile E. Coyote wearing a jetpack on a skateboard.
I opted for the Acme rocket ;)

The ideas this coyote has are always nothing but short of amazing. And with the trusty supply of Acme Co. goods he can build the craziest contraptions only to find out they will always fail him.
It is his lifework to catch that pesky Roadrunner.

Say what you will, he is the most dedicated,fully committed and persevering individual of the planet.

Deadmau5 w/ crown

Day 106 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

@kingmau5_ is down with Deadmau5 with a crown.
Had to google the fella to know what the deal was, apparently he is a progressive-house music producer.
I do like the artwork he has for his albums.

Super Nintendo

Day 104 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

@artisbullshit chose the Super Nintendo.
It is also known as the Super NES, SNES or Super Nintendo. In Japan it was known as the Super Famicom.

When this system was released you could find me at a friend’s place going all out on Streetfighter 2 and Mortal Kombat 2.
The games on this system are hands down the best because it was something you’ve never seen before and the controls were pretty smooth too.

Next to the Playstation1 and Sega Dreamcast one of my most favourite gaming consoles.
