Post Battle Pool Party


Forced to Fight, Forbidden from Fun.

Epic Battle

Gladiators were instructed to let Caesar's nephew win. It often took hours.

A lil late mixed in with Gladiator

Boy Im behind....Thought I would toss in the turtle and hare. I will have to mix in the cartoon villain in with the next one :(

Everyones is all fancy...Sorry mines sketchy again.

Girly Gladiator

Since I didn't manage to do one last week, here's mine early this week! Yay!

New Topic: Gladiator

Thanks for all the great posts last week, everyone! Remember, you aren't late until midnight on Monday!

This week's topic is: GLADIATOR!

So, feedback goes here: What was your favorite post this week?

Mojo Jojo


Of all the dozen or more possibile villains I chose Mojo Jojo from the Powerpuff Girls cartoon. Though I've never watched the show, I've always loved his design. Green monkeys with turbans crack me up.

Clarification for Voting on "Best of the Week"

Today I've discussed the idea of a "Best of the Week" vote with a few of you, and this is what the outcome of those conversations seems to be:

1 - The vote will not be official. If you don't want to say which was your favorite or you don't want to feel like you're competing or you really don't have a favorite, please just keep posting drawings like you're already doing. If you never vote for your favorite - no harm done.
2 - No winner will be announced. If you get more votes than anyone else in a week, you can print your own T-shirts or whatever, but Toon Club itself will host no parties or parades on your behalf. No one really wins... it's just a second opportunity in a week to tell someone, "Hey - good job."
3 - If you want to pick a favorite drawing for a topic, post your comment under the new topic for the coming week. Then everyone who wants to see a vote will know where to find it, and everyone who doesn't care can avoid it.

Scary Beyond All Reason

I couldn't resist, after seeing her as a cat. She can't be left out. Maybe not the scariest villain, but certainly one of the most entertaining.

Previously on 24


edit: My friend Mark pointed out that the line is "Launch the Missile!" not fire the missile. I also tried to make it look a little more like Jack.

Such a Shame She Didn't Have More Screen Time


Okay, so maybe I drew this a bit quick, but you can't convincingly argue that Yzma's cat form isn't one of the greatest cartoon villains of all time.

Lumpjaw by name, villain by fame


When out of his lair came the third bear, with murder in his eyes.
Who knows who this tough guy is?

Add A Little Spice

I think we should add a little "favorites" blog to ToonClub, and at the declaration of a new topic everyone can leave a comment in which they vote for their favorite for the previous topic. I think it would be fun, and add another reason to check in with ToonClub. It doesn't have to be a competition so much as just a fun way to conclude each week. All the posts are usually great, but it's just a way to recognize the one that stands out for you personally. Thoughts?

Cereal Villains!


Well, I dunno how "villainous" they are, but there are definitely parents frowning upon spooky sugared cereals.

I'm sure you're all familiar with Count Chocula, Franken Berry & Boo Berry, but do you remember Yummy Mummy & Fruit Brute!?!

Maleficent's the Coolest!


The Sea Witch

Ursula heralded in a new era of Disney villians... Gotta give her some props!

KUMA - Afro Samurai

I didn't make him up...

New Topic: Cartoon Villains

New week... new topic: draw your FAVORITE CARTOON VILLAIN. This topic would have probably worked better in October, but we're doing it now instead. Enjoy!

Slow and Steady... But Still Late

I'm loving the posts lately.... Here's my entry for last week, which I'll move to the proper place in a day or so.

UPDATE: Yeah, that background was thrown together too quickly. This one's a lot more basic, but hopefully an improvement. Thanks for the feedback, chaps.

What the hey...

Hey guys! Where have you all been? Sheesh.

Jocks and Nerds


As I went about sketching rabbits and turtles, I was suddenly struck with inspiration about the symbolism in the fable.
The more I thought about it, the more I became convinced that this is what Aesop meant.

Tortoise vs. the Hare: With a Vengeance






After seeing it posted in black and white I thought Shane and Joe (cough) were right... it needed some color, so I splashed some on. I used an air cannon, can you tell? Have a great weekend guys!

Tortoise vs Hare


Tortoise and Hare

Seems like the Tortoise and the Hare have come to some sort of truce and now are marathon buddies.

Boulder Induced Sleep



This may very well be the reason the Hare took such a long nap during the race.

Tortoise vs. HAIR


The war wages on. Each morning a new battle begins. Some evenings bring victory, others.....
How long will it continue? When will it end? No one knows. No one asks. No one cares.....

The Race Is On!


Don't you wonder what's fueling that thing? I thought I'd add a background.

Tortoise vs Hare

New Topic: TORTOISE vs. HARE

The topic for the next week: "Tortoise vs. Hare."
And that's all I have to say about it.

Love

Yikes fallin behind. Heres a simple cupid

Toon Club: Love




What could be better than sitting down with an alien for a big scoop of something sweet? This is love. (Don't tell my wife or kids.)

My boys!

If you haven't seen it yet, here they are!

Check out Episode 2 in particular.

Toon Club Collaboration

Take advantage of a serendipitous thought process, Nathan and I have decided to post our first collaboration here.

Cupid

It seemed my girlish duty to do something soft and cute and pretty for this topic.

Love and Gluttony

Hey Moms! Why not give your little orcas a treat they'll really LOVE!?
PENGUIN POPS!
(now with new "emperor" flavor)

Love Is Blind


One Crazy Summer?....Remember?....Anyone?....I'll just shut up now.

Sailors Love Mermaids



As I understand it, the myth of mermaids began when sailors mistook manatees draped in seaweed for beautiful women with flowing hair. Sailors are cool, and manatees are totally hot.

Forbidden Love

New Topic: LOVE

In honor of next week's Valentine's Day, this week's Toon Club topic is "LOVE."

Walrus and Carpenter


Forgive the dodge and burn, and the lack of research... My one goal was... POST SOMETHING!
