My Imaginary Friend


I wanted to try to design my imaginary friend as though he were a resident at Foster's. That's me in the Lakers attire... which I wore every day for about four years in a row. And, or course, my buffalo/chipmunk friend.

Awesome take on Foster's, Shane. I love it, and I love the young Shane design. Tee hee.

I think my favorite things about this are the huge nose and errant hairs on Chipallo. Fantabulous work!

I love "you"...which means "the drawing of you". I don't think I would feel so awkward right now if your friend weren't looking at me like that.

It's all great. didn't I see you wearing those shorts a couple weeks ago?

Don't stand too close, Shane. I once saw a German stand too close to a buffalo... Oh, you saw that too. I'm not sure that the chipmunk in him makes him more tame, or more angry. I know he can smell better, which is probably why he's making that expression... with your 4 year lakers shirt thing you had goin' on.

Sweet expression on the Buffalo. He looks like so much fun... mostly because of the hat he's wearing.

The contradiction between his hat and his expression is priceless Shane. Looks like you had fun making him up. Or did you have referance this time? Nicely done Master Shane.

I LOVE it!!! This looks like a really fun topic. Definetly one of my favorite things to draw.

Peter said...

Yeah, Shane, way to go making us all look bad before we've even begun to think about what we're going to draw this week. Looks straight out of the show, impressive!

Nice job, you really got the Foster's style down here! The hairs and the beanie are great and I see you usde the "goatee tool" again on this one! I'm gonna have to get that plug-in. The expressions are great and I love the flat colors!

This is great in a snuffleupugus (sp?) sort of way.

Joe Fowler said...

There are two types of "friends" at Foster's: Cuddly, and Scary.

This is both.

I'm happily scared.

Very cool idea!

Wow. My first visit here and I get to see a great STLewis post. I love the character a lot!

Seth Hippen said...

Very nice. My favorite part is the chipalo's arms and hands. I can see some nice rubber tube animation on them in my imagination.

GhettoFab said...

Awesome. I like how the Chipmunk Buffalo looks so upset about the leash :)

Cuffe said...

No idea what Fosters is, or the Lakers for that matter, but I love the drawing
