WARNING!: I joined the Cartoon Craziness Challenge! Enter at Your Own Risk!


OK, it’s week 3 of the Cartoon Craziness Challenge. I’ve watched from a far, intrigued but terrified of exposing my nearly non-existent drawing abilities. I tried to put something together for weeks 1 and 2, but my attempts ended up in the recycle bin. But with this weeks theme of superheroes–and a few pushes and prods from a few people (You know who you are!), I am jumping in this week. Against my better judgment.Β  πŸ˜‰

I suspect that I’m trying too hard. At the same time, I suspect I need to spend some regular time practicing specific features so that I don’t feel like I have to try to hard. If I could learn to draw a few basic eyes and mouths, maybe I would not shudder when I look at my efforts.

The superhero I drew is based very loosely on Wonder Woman, not because I’m particularly fond of Wonder Woman exactly, but because that was just the pattern I decided to try to model from. Although you will see limited resemblance to the model, here is what I started with.

When I drew my superhero, her mouth is way too large for her face, but it was already my fourth attempt, so I decided to hide it on the scanner. But then, my husband found it and saved the file, and here we are. So, without further ado, I introduce to you LATTE WOMAN!



She needs only coffee to help her accomplish amazing things! (Notice her logo on her forehead–or don’t!Β  haha!) Maybe I’ll try extra coffee if when I join in next time. The good news is I didn’t get as frustrated this week, so maybe this will actually get to be fun.Β Β  πŸ™‚

Thanks to Mental Mama and Indecisive Eejit for hosting this challenge.

  1. My drawing abilities are way worse than yours if it makes you feel any better about your attempts. πŸ˜‰ And Latte woman made me smile, only you would have thought of a coffee drinking superhero!

    • Thanks, Emmely! I guess I’m rather well-known for my coffee fixation.
      πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the encouraging words. I really wasn’t sure I would
      post it, but it’s supposed to just be fun, and I certainly can use some
      fun from time to time. πŸ™‚
