After some discussion, Gene and I decided on Space Girls for next week's topic. Something we've both wanted to do a while it seems. Check back to see what we come up with next Wednesday.

Librarians by Gene Gonzales

My little contribution to this week's theme. I went with a Gil Elvgren vibe here. If you are going to steal, steal from the best. :)

Librarians by Joe Pekar

I warned Gene that I was going to be stretching this week's theme a bit. So here are my 'Librarians' :).

My thought process started out on track...y'know girl with glasses and books around her. Then I figured what's better than one girl reading? Two girls of course! Then I kept thinking on it...what's better than two girls? (3 girls is too much more work, so don't go there :).) Two girls... taking a bath!...while reading! And somehow my brain thought that was an appropriate image for 'Librarian'.


and yes, the one girl is reading Moby Dick... just because I've got the maturity level of a thirteen year old. :)

DC's Death by Joe Pekar

Did this one with a mix of grayscale markers and watercolors. Was going to originally just do it in black and white, but I just can't resist messing around with color. (thankfully she didn't end up as a red head ;))

check back next Wednesday to see what we come up with.

Starfire - Teen Titans by Joe Pekar

ok, I couldn't resist drawing Starfire...shocking, I know! (I'm not sure if I've ever done a color one of her before...i think I've done a couple black and white drawings though...). I loved the Titans in the 80's, but haven't kept up over the years, so that's why I went old school :)

9"x12" copic markers (and watercolor background colors)

Ravager - Teen Titan by Gene Gonzales

I was going to do a classic, 1960s Teen Titan, but someone mentioned Ravager. I have never drawn that character before so here she is. :)

Next Week's Subject: Teen Titans

We decided to go with the Teen Titans as our subject for next suggested by Carlos Lising. We figured it would be a good break to have the variety of characters to choose from and not necessarily draw the same one...though what are the chances I won't draw Starfire? hmm...

Feel free to suggest some Titan characters for us (though that doesn't mean we'll actually go with them, but it doesn't hurt to try ;))

Red Riding Hood by Joe Pekar

This may not be the right outfit to wear when visiting your dear old grandma in the woods...unless your plan is to give her a heart attack...

Red Riding Hood by Gene Gonzales

Here is my take on Red. A little different that you would normally see from me.

Next Week's Subject: Red Riding Hood

We are taking a break from super-heroes next week with Red Riding Hood. I bet you can figure out what to expect from Joe and my take on this character. :)

Hope to see you Wednesday!
