Just to start things up, I'll begin an excercise I've done for a few years now. It's called "Make a REBOP". I know what you're thinking... what in God's name is a rebop, right?
A rebop is a creature made up of various animal parts. I ask people to pick various parts & I draw them lickety-split & see their reactions. I make rebops to hone my creative drawing skill. It's great training for me, plus I give them to people if they would like the creatures they helped create. Anyone can participate.
Here's how to do it: Each person gives me 8-10 animal parts. These parts can me heads, necks, torsos, arms, legs, feet, tails, & various other appendages (wings, horns, spikes, etc.) Everything is acceptable except the eyes, because I make them all the same (except if you want bug-like eyes). I see the list, draw the picture on paper, scan it into the computer & post it on this thread. I'll give it a Seussian-like name as an added bonus.
There's only one rule: no disgusting/suggestive parts.
To start this off, I'll post a few of my favorites from the past few weeks:
The Winged Norfcrockor (Lion's tail, gryphon's wings, serpent's tongue, panther's body, wolf head, dragon claws, ram horns, cow spots) The Glorpodox (Rhino tusk, gorilla torso, fox ears, 2 lion tails, snail tail, quills, moose antlers, tentacle arms)
The Glox Sproitesser (Impala horns, elephant feet, cricket legs, bug mouth, bee stinger, aardvark head, hippo ears, dragonfly wings)The Winged-Crawed Buzzlox (Griffin ears, bird wings, serpent body, elephant trunk, fish fin, crawdad legs, crab claws)It might take a day or two to get the reply, so be patient. I'll get to it ASAP. Enjoy!
