Dr Horrible's Stolen Ostinato

When I started this blog, I vowed it would be professional and sober and not a place for dorky fanart and stupid gags, but dangit, I just really like how this turned out:


This started out as a doodle when I realized the ostinato guitar behind that first song in Act II sounded a lot like the bit in 'The Island' by the Decemberists. That's Colin Meloy, see? Oh, my sides split with laughter! Well because it was that part I imagined it lit like that and the bare pencil sketch just looked bare. So, four hours later ...

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, if you haven't seen it, is available on iTunes ($4, bargains galore!) and is some Whedon kind of awesome.

I've had the Dr. Horrible songs in my head for about a week now. I WANT MORE!

three hours later...
the island just came on the radio station I'm listening to. You're right.

Doug said...

I really love all of your stuff. You're quite amazing, I hope you keep the good stuff coming!

Tealin said...

Sonja: It's going well, and it looks better small. :)

Meghan: Glad to know I'm not the only one! By the way, no one told me you were going to be in Hellboy II ... I feel so left out.

Doug: Thanks for the encouragement!

Oh come now, what's the fun in having a blog if you can't put random stuff up ocasionally. I think people would be mightily impressed if you put a fifth of your quick cafe sketches and gestures up here from time to time; proffesionals do it all the time....

Cool drawing here too, btw.

Hmmm.. I went and watched the hellboy 2 trailer. And i suspect you mean that I look a bit like the princess demon or whatever she is. THen I looked up the actress who plays that character, and realized we only resemble each other when she is wearing her demon makeup.
Awesome.

you know what i realized, no one and i mean no one draws hands like Sarah!
lend me your brains so that i may eat them and gain your hand drawing strengths!

Tealin said...

Perhaps not, but here is a short list of people who draw them better:

Milt Kahl
Frank Thomas
Bruce Smith
Mike Surrey
Mike Mignola
James Baxter
Kenny Park
Sandro Cleuzo
Jin Kim

That's just off the top of my head. Study them!

Sloth said...

perhaps, but its easier cause i can talk to you, getting a hold of Milt might be tricky :P

Tealin said...

And I say to you: Study their drawings. That's all I did. Never got to talk to most of them until well after I'd learned hands.

Also, draw your own. A lot.

Wow, Sarah... I'm honoured to be up on that list but are you sure it wasn't a typo?

You're artwork looks phenomenal as usual.

Hope you're doing great.

Tealin said...

It is not a typo and you know it, Mr Park.

Good to see you back on the webs!
