Animal Kingdom – Avatar

I decided that drawing would be a good excuse to be off my feet for a while, so I drew the huge mech thingy from the movie Avatar that was right in front of me.  I proved to be free entertainment for quite a few children and even a couple of adults.  I was asked a couple times if I drew professionally and people were actually surprised when I said no!

Magic Kingdom

There were a number of shows and parades and other such things happening that involved a lot of waiting in between so I drew this during that time.  I figured since I only had a black pen to work with I’d just use that to represent the lights instead of trying to outline them.  It took a long time and is a bit wonky, but it was a fun experiment.  Also: always carry a book light with you, kids.  You never know when it might be way too dark to draw.

Disney Studios

Drawn from a photograph I took and apparently didn’t scan very well (wtf left side blur) but that’s all right.  The fun part about this was that I finished it while waiting for the evening program to begin at Animal Kingdom, and the little girl next to me was fascinated.  I particularly liked showing her the magic of the watercolor crayons.

Disney Springs

Drawn from a photograph I took at dusk at Disney Springs.  (One day I swear I will ride in that balloon, dang it!)  This was my first time using watercolor crayons and they are so amazing.

Mitchells Presbyterian Church

Drawn from my car early in the morning.

EPCOT World Showcase

The view from Tokyo Dining at the Japan pavilion.

Drawn from a photograph I took on the ride in the Mexico pavilion.

The Aviary

Drawn from my car at about 7am.

Diary Comic: Black Magic

True story.
