Stalled by the Motorcycle


, , , , , ,

I’m one page away from finishing the inking part of the graphic novel. One mere page. Merely one page. But my weakness is technology, and I have to draw a motorcycle. I’ve given up on realistic. I will settle for something that looks like it doesn’t belong to Fred Flintstone. So the page will have to wait until tomorrow, when I am fresh enough to tackle the wonders of two wheel machinery. In the meantime, here’s a comic I drew in class as part of an exercise — we all had to draw a motorcycle, in perspective, without looking at any reference. A reference to “drawing toasters” was made at some point during the class, referring to the process of drawing a box around whatever you wanted to draw in perspective, no matter what shape it was. Thus, the uh, minivan. Notice how I cleverly hid having to draw any of the machinery by putting a dinosaur with plump thighs on it! Also, setting it in the far distant past means it doesn’t have to be up to modern standards. In fact, I adapted it for dinosaur morphology!  Alas, the one I have to draw for the current project is both exposed and modern. Can’t fudge it this time!
