I mentioned some time ago that I had an idea for a single-panel cartoon
. I don't normally think about cartoons in the context of "creating" them, but I made a valiant attempt anyway.
Today, I share the fruit of my labor. I drew these on lined notebook paper and then scanned them. I think you'll find that it doesn't matter. Believe it or not, you're getting to see the good versions.
This one was intended to look like a doctor's office.
The "Doctor" PC is supposed to be scratching his head. He's also supposed to be the one talking, but I decided not to split hairs. He looks like he's about to shout "Great Scott!" and soil himself. He also looks a bit like he's wearing a smurf hat.
The "Nurse" PC is the one holding the boot. I briefly considered adding a visual clue to point out the Doctor / Nurse thing, but then I remembered I was drawing solid lines and having trouble with it.
Ah, and that poor human... I don't know what's worse. He's got a skeletal foot, a missing face, and a protruding shoulder. He's nude except for one boot, as anatomically correct as a "Ken" doll, and is apparently playing "pull my finger" with himself.
Let's move on.
This is my attempt at a baseball player. That's not a stick with a spider web up top, that's a baseball hat.
According to my "pixel" art on his face, the screen resolution must be a whopping 32 by 28. He's got two power buttons, which I like to compare to a double-chin.
Oh, and don't forget the baseball that's shattering his screen. You could tell it's a baseball, right?
You know, if any of you artsy-types are so inclined, I'd love to see what these things look like when drawn well.
