GEEKERELLA FINALE

Finally completed the last drawing in my Geekerella by Ashley Poston chapter illustration series.  This drawing depicts the scene where Darien and Elle are at a red carpet event, and Elle even brought Frank, with a matching vest. 🙂

I sketched it in pencil, inked it, and then scanned and edited it in Gimp.

 

Now that I’m done with this series, I’m looking forward to some other projects I have in mind.  Check back soon!

 

PEANUT BUTTER AMBUSH

The next drawing in my Geekerella (by Ashley Poston) chapter sketch series is a pretty interesting and somewhat scary one.

First of all, at the beginning of this scene, it is late at night, and Elle just finished posting a blog.  She thinks no one is awake in the house, so she quietly sneaks down the stairs and goes into the kitchen, where she hides her peanut butter jar.  I loved this part of the book so much, because Elle was having a nice, fun, quiet moment to herself, without anyone telling her what to do.  Well, unfortunately, her evil stepmother was downstairs in the kitchen, and RUINED the moment.  Her and Elle had an argument, ending in the evil stepmother literally slapping Elle!

 

As you can tell, I made the stepmother look like the stepmother in the original Disney Cinderella movie.

 

Until next time!

LIEUTENANT BUBBLEGUM

In chapter 16 of Geekerella by Ashley Poston, Darien is filming a dance scene with his co-star Jessica Stone.  By the end of the shoot, Jessica is sick of filming, walks off the set, and throws her hair extensions onto the dressing room table.  I think Jessica Stone is actually an interesting character, and the more her character develops, the more you find out about her ambitions, and she doesn’t seem as superficial as she does at the beginning of the book.

 

 

I drew Jessica Stone to look like Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time.  I’m honestly not sure what her outfit is supposed to look like, because I don’t remember the book mentioning what she was wearing in this scene, so I just gave her a Star Trek style outfit.  I wonder if she was supposed to be wearing that blue dress that Elle’s mother wore as a cosplay…

 

Anyway, here is a picture of Princess Bubblegum, in case you didn’t know what she looks like:

 

Her hair is a bit different in this pic, but I actually based the front of her hair in my drawing on Princess Bubblegum’s hair from an Adventure Time comic book we have.

 

Do you read or watch Adventure Time?  We have two or three of the comic books, and I’ve only watched a few minutes of the show, but I think I might start watching the show if I get some free time.
