    Archy! Nomnomnom.

    No, not Gosalyn. Wrong country. Sage is standing there, holding Poncle piggyback, and Poncle is bonelessly asleep. Janken is standing by them, a kinda chilled-out blank expression on his face, a large leaf on his head.

    I like to see Cantus doing his part to beautify Fraggle Rock with his music, lol. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, guys. Glad you like.

    When I was drawing the pic of Sage, Poncle, and Janken at the lower left I was thinking of the bus stop scene in My Neighbor Totoro...

    It's a lovely movie, and though (or maybe because) it draws on Japanese religion and folklore I think it has a lot of Fraggly spirit. And Mei, the younger sister, is Poncle in human form.

    Wow. It's been a long time since I've drawn anything. A long time. More on that later, when I feel ready to talk about it. *sigh*

    Anyway! Recently an artist on DeviantArt I like, ggolddduck, opened up to commissions. I likes her art, and her rates are reasonable, so I asked her if she'd draw Muppets. The answer was an enthusiastic yes. I gave her a very general idea, an affectionate picture with Scooter & Janken, and some background on the characters. I told her I wanted to see 'em in her style rather than painstakingly on model. This is the picture she drew me:

    (Please note: this is an upload to my DA sta.sh, and will likely be taken down once she uploads the pic to her gallery, where people can post comments for her. So, if you should see a broken image above, just scroll down and you'll find my repost.)

    Anyhow, I just love this picture! It's so sweet and, well, snuggly. D'awwww.

    It's cool to see Janken drawn in another style, and the picture is really sweet. Thanks for posting!

    A Hidey-Hole of Our Very Own - The link takes you to the artist's DA page, where you can leave her feedback should the spirit move you.

    A thing I drawed. Mostly random, pass-the-time doodles, but there is some fanfic and character design stuff too.

    I have actually done some real, non-doodle art lately, but it's for an Oz publication, so I haven't shown it here. When it's published I'll upload it to my DA gallery.

    Awww, poor Janken, he looks so sad. Hope Scooter can help him out.

    Thanks for sharing these sketches.

    Yeah, Jan's got a problem back at the Rock. It's a Fraggle thing; a Silly Creature wouldn't understand. So he believes...

    I doodled this yesterday. Can you tell what game I've been playing?

    [​IMG]
    Yes, I am aware of how wrong this is. That's why I drew it.

    Poor Boober! I imagine he's headed for his hidey-hole ASAP.

    Oh, God! Not you too! (Five Nights is seriously popular on tumblr)

    Don't worry Boober! I'm sure it's just a bad dream!

    I imagine he's headed for unconsciousness.
    I don't Tumbl, but after I got the game I saw the interesting stuff on DeviantArt. Someone even wrote a song about it. I'm just waiting for a fan comic (that lasts more than 4 pages).
    And remember, if you die you can just start another game! And die again! Oh jeez, that rabbit keeps eating my face. And the chicken gets the leftovers!

    I'm so glad I'm playing on my iPod. A small screen in your hand just isn't that scary. If it was on a computer monitor, taking up most of my field of vision, I'd have to put on Depends before playing.

    I did a meme because I like drawing expressions because drawing expressions is fun. Plus, I need to draw more.

    I was about a third of the way through before I remembered what the collar of his jacket looks like.

    Duuuuuudle Duuuuuump - When I'm bored I draw. This is several sessions of boredom. You can probably tell where one ended and the next one picked up.

    I may do a full-on cartoon of Gonzo and Chica. They make a cute couple, don't they?
