The Chux Wagon
Sometimes always drawing.
  • "Can I pick a dress for you to draw Charlie in?" my wife said. 

    "Sure!" I said. 

    "Here’s the MOST COMPLICATED DRESS," my wife said.

    "See you in a week!" I said. 

    (Actually she gave a list of outfits from modcloth and this was just one of them but I had to draw it. And then I had to draw a setting. And then that meant wallpaper and smoky lighting and a vintage chaise.)

  • My nice new Samsung Note 10.1 got knocked off the couch last month and the screen doesn’t turn on any more - which is a real bummer because I was able to sketch on it from anywhere I wanted. I haven’t looked into the repair costs yet, but it’s more than I can afford for now. 

    Finally sick of not being able to draw away from my desk, I caved and unburied the sketchbook. It wasn’t as bad as I had feared, and I was even able to get in some more Charlie practice as I work on solidifying her new design.

  • Starting to feel more confident drawing lately, though it’s taking a lot of warm-up to work through.

    @modcloth has been kind of a fantastic place for inspiration. Here are a couple drawings of Charlie in their dresses.

    (The awesome thing about drawing is I don’t have to worry about sizing or stock.)

  • Sketching was just coming about abysmal tonight and then this came out. Makin’ progress. 

    Modcloth is proving kind of awesome for getting inspiration for drawing. http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/peach-to-meet-you-dress

  • Kept fighting and something not-horrible finally started coming out.

  • So LET’S JUST SAY that I’m considering a project, and that project might be using characters and story from Brightest, but I really want to draw them as cute toons instead. 

    I really want to pick some designs and animals that will fit their original personalities instead of just random choices. Anyone remember enough about Brightest to give some recommendations? A fox for Alex and a bunny for Charlie seem like fitting to their personalities. 

    A shrew for Maggie? A…something for Coop? A dog for Charlie’s ex?

  • Summer Pinup Charlie

    And the final bit of fan-servicery for this series. Charlie!

    Like I’ve said, I’ve already got an initial run of these printed (I think it’s 20 each? 15? Something), along with a few other prints actually. Charlie hair experiments and…the group shot for Season 2? 

    Just checked the box again and they seem to have survived the fire unscathed - any sort of smoke smell is long gone by now too, as it turns out. Maybe I’ll try to get around to selling them at some point. But I’m a terrible businessman.

  • Charlie Painting Toenails Request!

    Decided to try a quick sketch - the goal was definitely to be loose and fast with it, and that’s what actually happened, thankfully. Basing this off a request (but minus the bra and panties. Though those are in here, I suppose, just underneath!), because I’m not good enough to think up random ideas on the spot right now. 

    Can’t promise I’ll do any of the requests, but I appreciate the ideas! As you can see, they can sometimes work out.
