*flail*flail*flail*flail*flail*too much to get DONE*maybe a couple of hours' kip wouldn't hurt*

Two hours' sleep last night, and I'm bloody knackered; thought just taking a pic would be quick-and-easy, and mean I was tucked up in bed with the cat sprawling on me by now. Apparently not. :P

So, Day 1 of NAARMAMO, and I had no idea what to do. I was, to paraphrase Edmund Blackadder, more stuck than Sticky the Stick Insect when he got stuck on a sticky bun, and hoping I could somehow make a better show of it than last year's rather less-than-impressive total of four drawings...

...and I still need a bloody scanner. :P

However. After an hour spent scribbling aimlessly on the pad...upon rereading today's post in [ profile] naarmamo , I saw once more someone's rather lovely painting of a camel I had earlier admired: and lo, I instantly declared it CAMEL TIEM.

So, here we go. Freehand, with a screenshot from The Four Feathers used for reference, photographed to the best of mine and a wheezy, vampirically battery-draining camera's ability...soldierboyo on camel. (I know I have repeatedly bitched about the inclusion of red coats in The Four Feathers, but if they can operate entirely on Rule Of Pretty, then so can I.)

The 4 drawings I did manage to finish. :P Not terribly brilliant, but hey.

All worksafe.

Apologies for the slightly unfocused photography. I was reduced to blu-tacking a few of the pics to an outside window, leaning my elbows on a plastic bin to keep them steady, and snapping them on my mobile phone to get any sort of decent lighting for the photographs. I wish I was making this up... :P

Bloody hell, I need a scanner.

I also refuse to apologise for multiple Murrays, when the whole point of Naarmamo is (I suppose) meant to produce a variety of subjects. It's my damned LJ... ;)

On with the motley...

If there isn't a specific swearword for getting halfway through lining in a draft sketch in permanent pen, being rather pleased with it, then realising that for some reason you have depicted a right-handed character firing a service revolver left-handed, and being unable to simply flip the image in Photoshop because of stuff like hair partings, buttons, belt-pouches, etc. all being on their correct side[s]...

...then there BLOODY WELL SHOULD BE, to my mind.


[On the plus side, the paper I used for this one - which was intended as one frame in a strip - turned out to be woefully unsuitable for photographing and colouring in Photoshop, as the (actual, physical, rubber) eraser not only works at about 50% efficiency, but also tends to scrape and fluff it up something terrible, both of which lead to a serious degree of jagged and murky patches in the electronic file which are Not Easily Got Rid a good excuse to start all over again on smoother paper for the strip, and possibly use this as a (kind of AU ;) ) header image for the LJ. It's too good to waste (by my standards, anyhoo).]

Appropriate icon is appropriate.

A silly quickie sketch for Holmesslash. Completely worksafe, but daft.

C'mon, I needed the distraction... )

A tentative initial foray into fanart...
