Larry and Spike Real Mature by Cortanna117
Larry and Spike Real Mature
A doodle of Larry and Spike, exploring faces. I realize that I forgot Spike's wings. Oh well.

Larry Faces
Some faces for Larry. ANd because I put Spike's full name in an edit, I may as well put Larry's full name here too. It's Lawrence John Buckett. A rather unfortunate name, really.

Some faces for Spike.
EDIT: I have been informed that Spike is also the name of a dragon on My Little Pony. This Spike is not that Spike. I've had this Spike since before the new run of the pony show, therefore I'm not changing it because this is MY Spike and not meant to infringe on THAT Spike. Besides, Spike is just his nickname (my Spike). He hates his real one ( actual full name: Bartholomew Edward Charlston III. And I swear to God if THAT's the same too...)

Larry and Spike
I've had these two characters since high school. Larry's a relatively normal kid, kind of the geeky kind, pretty smart. Spike is is best friend, who also just so happens to be a dragon. Spike is kind of jock-ish, and desperately wants to do sports (but he can't, because it isn't fair to the other team to play against a dragon, but that doesn't stop him trying out). They're in high school, and now they have to survive it. I had been drawing little comics about them, then I lost/forgot about them. I recently rediscovered them, and now I've brought them back. I will begin drawing character sheets and comics of them now that I have them again :) I never uploaded them here because it's a pain to upload non-digital stuff when one doesn't own a halfway decent camera.

These characters are mine, and if they resemble people or other characters, it's purely coincidental. Also, I didn't realize that the background color almost blends in with DA, but oh well.

Copyright 2014. Don't use these characters without asking, if you please.
I wrote up an art challenge for myself, based upon others that I had seen surfing the web. I've been having major artists' block the past few months, especially since I haven't been taking an art class this semester. I will begin the challenge in March, just for the sake of having an easier time keeping track. And I will be using whatever media I happen to have, be it pens, pencils, ink, paint, or digital. I do plan on utilizing the latter two, being that I REALLY need the practice. Or I'll procrastinate on them, which now I think about it is far more likely.

Cortanna117's Profile Picture
Crystal Piper (Aven)
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I am an art major in the local community college, from which I will hopefully transfer to a university. There I will get a teaching credential and teach Art in a high school setting. I sing and act when I can (though I really can't dance). I sculpt, write, draw, and take photographs. I usually use traditional media (particularly pencils) when I draw, though I need to practice with other media, particularly digital and paints.
