So, I thought, "What would be the most embarrassing thing I could do to myself with my blog?" Then I thought, "Well, no, I'm not going to do that, so how about the second most?"
"Aha," I said, "Post my old attempts at drawing a comic book."
Unfortunately for you, and fortunately for me, I don't have it with me. It may, in fact, have been thrown out at some point. So instead, as a consolation prize, here are three pictures drawn about fifteen years ago, during my earlier flirtation with art. At the time, I thought these were pretty good. Right now I think they're... well, aside from being copies of comic book covers for the most part, they're not all that awful. (The girl is not a copy, and she is the worst.)
I'm happy that my current regular level is pretty much as good as my old peak performance (or so I think). That's encouraging. You can also see how deeply engrained my bad habits are.
Sorry about the image quality. These are very poor scans of faint pencil drawings on discoloured old paper. I played with the levels to try and get good contrast, but it didn't make them look very pretty.
