Pocoyo, Eli, Pato – Drawing A Day

Drawn on 1/11/12 for this day.  Pocoyo is a kids cartoon which originated in Spain. Thus their names have a Spanish tint.  Pocoyo which I believe is derived from poco yo, which can be “little bit of me”, or “little me”, or  “me little”.  Eli, the elephant, Pato, which is a direct word translation for duck.

Link from Zelda drawn in a different style – Drawing A Day

Re-illustration of Link from Zelda. Wanted to try to do something different. Taking from the style of Sergio Martiaez, the illustrator of You are Special by Max Lucado.  All the colors seem to be thrown off by the scanner. It’s seems a little bit more red and less green than it is supposed to be.

Elijah Riding A Bike and His Banana Juice – Drawing A Day

Here is a picture of Elijah on his bike, now with his helmet. He’s pretty good now. He glides with no problem. He is now safe. I got too busy to finish the drawing. This is normally how I draw my first draft, and with this, I draw it again and color on top of it.

Elijah did something interesting that night. He wanted to make some sort of juice.  He went into the kitchen and grabbed a stainless steel bowl and filled it with water and brought it to the kitchen table.  Then he went and brought a banana, peeled it and put it into the water. He then went to get a ladle and started to stir the banana. I sat next to him fascinated.  I’m sure if mom was here, this might have stopped quickly, but I let him continue. He stirred the banana and then when and got two cups. He then poured the banana water into the cup. He gave me one and then asked me to drink it. I did. It had a faint taste of banana skin. I drank like 4 cups because he kept offering it. He drank 2. He wanted to put it in the fridge. So I told him to put it into a container with some assistance.  No spills. We then went to get ready for bed.
