Ability to draw 'Ability' by dreor Ability to draw 'Ability' by dreor
Done as a homework exercise for a class. The assignment was to watch 30 minutes of television and to draw what we watched as we watched it. I watched an hour-long show instead (if you count commercials), Fringe on Hulu. Gotta love Hulu.

Pilot G-2 07 black ink pen, yellow and blue nupastels, 9x12 recycled sketchbook paper.

I'm not watermarking this one because I don't care about it enough to. If you're a douche and steal in some way, then you're a douche, aren't you?

Ah, well, thanks! But also, well, technically it wasn't fan art so there wouldn't actually ever be "more". It was an assignment. Heh. I'm not really the "fan art" type. I just haven't got the mojo for it, never have. Fringe is great though.

This is pretty cool it reminds me of sketches in Encyclopedia Brown books. Don't ask me where that came from? Yes I love encyclopedia brown what can I say. :D

Oh well here you go [link]
They were a series of mystery novels I loved when I was a kid. The pull was that he had solved the mystery, but gave you clues and you could try to solve it yourself. You would go to the back of the book to find the solution. There were inside and cover sketches and this looks very much like the books I use to read. :)

Did you get to pause it and draw, or did you have to do it real-time? I can't draw from memory, so I would epic fail on this unless I could pause.

I would pause it long enough to get the basic shapes down, then hit play, and fill in details and stuff until I saw another part I wanted to draw, pause again, rinse and repeat. Thank you for the comment(s)!

You're welcome!
That is just so cool....I love the way Olivia looks when she's standing in front of the light-bomb thing, and the two-dollar bill is perfect!
(after seeing that ep, i now have an irrational fear of two dollar bills :faint:)

You perfectly captured the, um, spirit of the episode. (aura? essence? I don't know...)
If only you drew the guy with his "orifices" sealed...;p

Woah! I really love the sketchy quality of this, and yet you didn't skimp on the details.

I can totally see that it's Fringe now.

Love the hand, alot.

Thanks, Lassie! I think I like the guy in the bottom left's legs best (I usually have trouble with people standing straight like that).

Haha, now that is an assignment I wish I had. XD
This looks really awesome, though! Even if you don't care about it that much. The two dollars bill is perfect. Great show :D
And yes, GOT to love Hulu. :)

It's a good exercise for teaching you to pay attention to two things equally, which is good as an artist since often we would otherwise find ourselves choosing to pay attention to the art and miss out on the event, or choosing to pay attention to the event and fall behind on the art...

Thanks for the comment and the +fav!
