Brandon: Something more serious minded, ’cause I made the mistake of reading a news story about George Zimmerman getting arrested again instead of just glancing at the headline. Beware that trap!
Sheala: “the Mouscaneers, gather their fleet on the Great Plains see and set off for adventure.”
Sheala says: Fluffy white cats enjoy the ear scratches of the villainous, for ear scratches are neutral and well delivered.
Brandon: Ninja mice, ’nuff said. Watch out Fluffy!
Brandon: Dr. Frankenmouse and his assistant Migor.
Sheala: Buddy, Cindy, Granny, Spot and Mr Jones and their evil twins.
(I was wondering what it takes to turn the ordinary, into the villainous. Seems to be more pointy bits, frowny angles and beady eyes!)
“Calling all agents, calling all C.U.T.E agents, we have a case against D.O.G.”
Sheala says: Can I make cute villainous? No, no I can not. But I can pit cute against villain and so this sketch. Which I have no doubt will return in my art life again. Soon. Hopefully, I’ll figure out what those acronyms stand for by then.
PS- that’s a pygmy marmoset, a pygmy Japanese flying squirrel, a dwarf rabbit, a jerboa and a pygmy hedgehog.
Brandon mumbles: Ok, this had no pirates, ninjas, aliens or villains in it, which is the theme of the theme. But I was inspired by the artwork of Erik D. Martin, so there you go. I suppose you could say the mice in the sketch are villains, but mice can’t be villains, so whatchgonnado?
Who does the Kevin in the title refer to? A minion, of course!
We’re gonna take a short break today, ’cause it’s Saturday morning, it’s cold out, there’s a free Showtime preview on cable and pancakes.
In the meantime, enjoy this awesomely redoneAnt-Man trailer, by director Patrick Willems! The changes kick in around 1:16!
Gary, the bunny like cousin to the elephant man is rescued by Betty the viking pirate space soldier from the nefarious key monster.
Yeah, just go with it.
A Dark Horse on the throne..
Brandon: More simple lines and forms, with a touch of hatching to give volume. I like the idea of pirate turtle wandering the earth. I’m using a Pigma Brush Pen for the thick lines, it’s unwieldy beast to control!
Sheala says: “waiting and watching are the hardest part.’
I like ink, pens usually and I like playing with stroke quality and texture. I think i would have watercolored this if it was going past the sketch stage, but instead I played with creating a darker background with line.
Tonight we got to visit with the fabulous Agent Carter again!
She’s still getting over the loss of Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, who is now chilling at the bottom of the arctic. Also she helped save to world and now the boys in the office want her to… file the paperwork. BORIIIIING!
And we get to peek in at Howard Stark aka dad of Iron Man, though it’s 1946 and he’s not born yet. Stark behavior runs in the family and Howie is in front of congress defending himself against treasonous acts of selling weapons.

Sheala: “Joe thought, I’ll get my revenge on the spiders! This mecha is just the thing!”
(I’m enjoying the ambiguity of this drawing since spiders and flies are both villainous)
Brandon: boy ninjas vs girl ninjas. Why? Because. Also, getting back to my love of simple forms and think lines.
Brandon: I have a…thing…for the Moon program. No worries, I’m in therapy for it! But drawings of the ships and stuff from that era just pop out sometimes. I call this “Houston we have a problem” hee hee.
Sheala says: The Mars pirates, unfurled their solar sails to charge and set off to discover their Earthly cousins, the so-called Oct-O-Pi.
