Dreamin' Bout Those Dreamy Eyes

Yeah, More Bone fanart! I can't seem to get enough of these guys.
I couldn't decide whether I liked it better with the rainbow color overtop, or without... so you get both!

Moby Dick: Bro hug

I just really needed to draw a happy pic today. My gal Karly is coming over on Tuesday, and this is what I'm going to do to her when she gets here. >:D She's my best friend from childhood and conviently shorter than me... Makes it easier to give her these types of hugs.
This is Ishmael and Queequeg from Moby Dick, by the way! In case you can't recognize them in color!! On a technical note, I really botched up 'Queg's tattoos, and I don't think I gave the man enough bulk, either. I'm still getting a grasp of their designs... but, man, are they just so fun to draw! :D

Moby Dick: new hat

So, I got a chance later today to actually sit down... and so I read some Moby Dick (I'd like to get the book finished before I have to return to my schoolin'). I got the the part where Queequeg saves Toshtego, and then I was stupid and scanned ahead. I didn't read any plot, but I fell on this sentence that said Queequeg lost his hat during a boat-lowering for a group of whales.

Then I had to draw this.

Ishmael, Queequeg doesn't trust you judgement!

Moby Dick - Doodles

So, I'm working on reading Moby Dick by Herman Melville right now... I'm about half way through. It's hard to put down! I absolutely love Ishmael and Queequeg. They have such a strong and awesome friendship! And they, when together, are mostly always hilarious. Sarcastic humor at it's best!! I can't pick a favorite part... It's all good.

"If there yet lurked any ice of indifference towards me in the Pagan's breast, this pleasant, genial smoke we had, soon thawed it out, and left us cronies. He seemed to take to me quite as naturally and unbiddenly as I to him; and when our smoke was over, he pressed his forehead against mine, clasped me round the waist, and said that henceforth we were married; meaning, in his country's phrase, that we were bosom friends; he would gladly die for me, if need should be. In a countryman, this sudden flame of friendship would have seemed far too premature, a thing to be much distrusted; but in this simple savage those old rules would not apply." --Moby Dick, Chapter 10 : "A Bosom Friend"

"Let me make a clean breast of it here, and frankly admit that I kept but sorry guard. With the problem of the universe revolving in me, how could I--being left completely to myself at such a thought-engendering altitude--how could I but lightly hold my obligations to observe all whale-ships' standing orders, 'Keep your weather eye open, and sing out every time.'" --Moby Dick, Chapter 35 : "The Mast Head"
