I did it, I did it, I got my Week 9 Cartoon Craziness Challenge drawing done. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to draw, as in, there were a lot of things I gave long consideration to and then realised they were too hard to draw, said feck dat and gave up. After a few more days of chewing on the end of a pencil and listening to my brain cells debating, I got out my sketch book, grabbed a pen and sat down to let my hands take over. I drew Willy Wonka. It’s ok to say WTF, cos I did, several times!
He’s not my favourite fictional character but for some reason it was decided that he would be the character that I drew for this challenge. In my head I always imagined him to be more kindly and a little less creepy that the versions portrayed by Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp, but I am ashamed to say I have never read the book, well not that I can remember anyway, so they could have been totally accurate.
The other fictional character I did try to draw was the one and only May Dupp, but she turned out to be all mouth, which to be fair it pretty accurate, but makes for a pretty rubbish drawing. There was no way I was ever going to be able to top the amazing work already done by Bitstrips, so I let that one go.
I’ve been giving serious consideration as to what to do about this challenge and asked Mama what she thought too. Everyone seems to be so busy right now, myself included and I wouldn’t want anyone to feel pressured into having to doodle, but if there are only going to be entries from myself and Mama then there is no point in running it as a challenge. I’ll have a sleep on it and see what I think. Sometimes these things just run their course, that’s what Mama said and perhaps she is right, it has been fun.
Till next time :)
