(Or (''I Guess I) Miss You'' 2.0). Since I haven’t made any progress on new drawings (although I plan on finishing Sandy today), I decided to fish out some old crap. I totally forgot about this one. This was actually the preliminary sketch of (I Guess I) Miss You but it didn’t turn out so I scrapped it. I think the other one gets the idea across much better.

I hate Spongebob with a passion but I'm really loving your art and some other people's art of the musical. The actors are so much sweeter and hotter, lol.
Well I mean the original's nostalgic but yeah it isn't the greatest thing since peanut butter. It's laughable compared to the musical (and I don't mean laughable because it's a children's comedy show but you know, the musical has more philosophy and merit. Same with the Ghost musical which I think puts the film to shame. It's more of a drama and much more sad).
Oh I love Ghost the musical! I never cared for the movie either. The musical deals better with Molly's stages of grief. It has some lighthearted moments but it isn't as much of a comedy and Old Mae Brown isn't a joke, she's more believable.
And Caissie Levy who I saw live in the L.A. production of Wicked is so fantastic. She's even better live.
I also love the set designs, they're out of this world. I can see why it was nominated for Best Musical. Of course it lost to Once which is also fantastic, but that was a pretty good season.
Same with Tuck Everlasting. The musical's way better than the film. They capture the book's themes better.
Also about Tuck, the musical has Winnie a 10, 11 year old and Jessie waiting for her to be 17 before they get married. They upped her age in the Disney movie for some reason (the remake) and a lot of the lines are cringey. It can't hold a candle to the musical. That version feels like a Hallmark Xmas movie in comparison.
Ah this is cool we love all the same musicals!
I've been wondering when you'd be posting again, although I know you've been busy but seriously this really made my day!
Patrick’s/Danny's face looks so REAL!
Right? I initially felt bad for scrapping it because I spent so long on his face alone. I’m not that great getting a likeness of real people, it’s always hit or miss, but Danny just turned out perfect the first time I attempted him. I actually like his face better in this one than the other one, even though he doesn’t look that sad. I was going to change his expression from blank to sad but I didn’t want to ruin it so I just left it. I would never be able to draw that face again, not even if I traced it. On the other hand, I couldn’t get SpongeBob’s profile right, so it’s one of the main reasons this one went in the reject pile (also, their hands just look really weird). I must’ve redrawn SpongeBob’s face a gazillion times. I like it better in the other one. And I usually always draw Ethan on his profile, I don’t know why, I never get him right on frontal views (his face is actually kinda hard for me), but sometimes it turns out and sometimes it doesn’t. I have my days like that.
Hoodies and pineapples?
