Mike Brian Dennis Carl Al Batista Randy and Leppy the Leopard

Mixing up Beach Boys and Leonardo's grotesques... will lead me somewhere

Also continuing to study said boys as part of my warming up. Dennises less good than Brians, but still got something of him in them.

Then I found an old drawing of Batista. And finished it with new lines.

But wrestlers made my life too easy with all their extraneous lumps. They already looked otherworldly. That's cheating.

It's always hard planning leopards.

Sketch sketch sketch. Beach Boys Beach Boys Beach Boys.

Drawing teenage Beach Boys, realising David Marks looks a bit like Prince Charles.

Dennis has a shape that can sometimes be just an archetype. Dennis is fun to play with. I suspect I am not the first person to have had this thought.

Then I started sketching really fast from frozen frames on the TV screen. The picture was very low res and slightly squished from being old and reproduced many times. I am so deperate to keep my hand in with drawing since I got a job, that I've actually gone a bit mad overcompensating with hardcore nightly drawing sessions.

Extra hard to get the likenesses with the squashed fat distorted telly images. But fun.

Don't worry, Baby.

Dennis jumps, Brian on swing... just a quick one...
