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
