This week’s Illustration Friday theme was: STRETCH. My first idea was to draw Mister Fantastic, Reed Richards. That could have turned out nicely if I’d dedicated more time to it, but instead, I decided to be hypercritical and scrap the drawing. Instead, I decided to start over and draw Bender, from Futurama.
Once I realized that he was shaped like a cocktail shaker, everything just sort of fell into place. Except for the visor. That part is still a bit challenging, but I’m sure I’ll stumble across the trick to it sooner or later.
Next week’s theme is: EXPLORE. I’m sure to draw the USS Enterprise.
