I was trying to figure out who dude reminded me of when it hit me: Kobe.
Dude looks exactly like Kobe with a Sri Lankan wig on, no? There’s that kinda lean, long slightly-Native facial structure, combined with the faintly condescending smirk that’s Kobe’s go-to facial expression.
At first, of course, I was just attracted to that sick-ass mane of hair. But once you get into the nitty-gritty, all I could see is the son of Jelly Bean Bryant…
J. Reynolds (polka dot week)
Polka-dotted white female, this time. I wuzn’t actually gonna try to draw her – cuz in reality she wuz crazy hot (and thus the stakes for abysmal representational failure being raising to a dizzying height) – but since she fit the polka-dot criteria, I went for it.
Turned out okay, too. These joints is pretty much a fifty-fifty proposition. Either they’re accurate and good or way off the mark and shitty. But hey – even Kobe has a bad game now and then. Maybe it’s more accurate to say LeBron in this day-and-age (in that dude has them less than Kobius. Which makes me wonder, appropos of nothing, is there an artistic equivalent? Like, “even Da Vinci painted the Boner Lisa…?”). Yeesh. That’s like a triple-double digression…
