Birthday Poster

So I used to make a lot of realy fun and super elaborate drawings for friends on their birthdays growing up. But over the years I have kind of fallen out of practice.

This is the most recent one I did for a co-worker a little while back. He is a fan of many things :slight_smile:

Brownie-points if you can catch all the references!

That would be a super-cool thing to receive for a birthday! Sadly, this is not my genre at all, so I only recognize Dr. Who. I’ll let someone else chime in with the other references! I will say, though, that I like all the positioning. My daughter (14) got stuck in a rut of drawing everything face on, arms dangling. She has been branching out lately and trying to do arms crossed or seated; I’ll have to show her this and have her look at how you used shading and even the characters’ clothing to accomplish it.

Yay, Gambit! When I was little and watching the cartoon, I always thought there was unrequited love between him and Rogue (pretty sure I didn’t know the word “unrequited” though).

This is great! Not catching any references apart from the ones that have already been mentioned, though…

I’ll chime in, too, that I also only catch the Who reference, but this is just awesome!

Very nice composition for your friend! Is he into Minecraft and Monty Python as well?

You got them all! (Or at least your son did!)

You know I’m sure he does, but I’ll have to ask!

The only reason I ask is because the green brick wall reminds me of Minecraft…and the stick leaning on the police box reminds me of the killer rabbit in Monty Python…I only knew of two of the references…I have been a Dr. Who fan since it began in the 60’s and I do like X-men…

Nice! Yeah the brick wall is more for aesthetic and the stick is from avatar the last air bender. But those are very clever ideas!
