Switchblade Sasquatch

Posted early...

I needed a last minute emergency post, and asked Hammers what to draw. He said "sasquatch" apparently because of the Tenacious D movie. I haven't seen it yet, but I came up with this:

The switchblade was my idea, but I still felt it needed some more zing, and Hammers suggested a gleam or a star.

My plumbing problem is fixed and my sewage carpets have been replaced by hardwood laminate. Also, apparently, I'm the only person in the universe who does not like hardwood floors. At any rate, my woes have come to an end (knock on hardwood), and we will be returning shortly to the robust posts of extreme dorkiness that you have come to expect from this blog.

When I typed up this post, I was a little under the gun and forgot a few things I wanted to mention--the sketching was done in (obviously) blue pencil, the thick outline was done with an orange Sharpie, and the thin outline was done with a black ultra-fine-tip Sharpie. After scanning the sketch, I adjusted the blues and oranges separately to achieve the hues and contrast that I wanted. The natural color of an orange Sharpie is considerably darker.
