Gosh, I missed drawing random stuff - some of it is oldish and some of it is very recent, I didn't have time for Cop Story doodles for a few weeks.
The chap with the dog is an old-ish character I never drew before. His name is Graham Wilson, he is/was/is a cop and the dog is called Wanker. They really deserve a proper introduction but I need to find the time to draw it.
Someday I will draw Gerry and Lucky without warm colours or a rainy background but that day is not today.
Little Eddie being adorable and destructive for my class assignment.
Something random for Sardonyxweapon - my Quinton and her Fitz getting on each other’s nerves while having an eyebrow competition! I don’t know who wins this but my money is on Quinton - he has a psychological advantage of unnerving people with his wheelchair (if you think Quinton doesn’t use his situation to manipulate people you really don’t know him). Also I finally drew Quinton’s electric wheelchair - he doesn’t get it till later in the story and I felt really bad about him being stuck in a manual one (which is essentially useless for him) in most pictures.
Actually, speaking of my class, if there's anything it taught me it's that there is art I understand better now and there's art I still don't understand. Max is probably more open-minded than I am and definitely more open-minded than Russell.
And then it’s Kevin with his dad (Harris). Kevin still lives with him, they get on pretty well but I’m not so sure which one is the organ grinder here because while Kevin clearly depends on his father, Harris is soft, protective and a bit of a pushover while Kevin can be very opinionated when he wants to. In the very first draft of Cop Story (before it was even called Cop Story) both Kevin’s parents were dead and he lived with his brother’s family. After a lot of re-writing he ended up with a father instead of an older brother but he never seems to get a full family.
After his injury Chauncey quit partying but it’s complicated - his colleagues kept inviting him unless they could find a good excuse not to and he kept coming unless he could find a good excuse not to but he really just sat in a corner drinking quietly and forcing a smile any time someone spoke to him. Hours of fun.
Recently I realised I didn't upload many pictures of Teague's classmates so you know next to nothing about them! I'm trying to fix it so here's Alastair MacNamara - a teacher's pet and Teague's arch-nemesis. Al made the school look good once and before he could understand what exactly happened the teachers started giving him extra attention. Al doesn't have enough social skills to grasp that it makes other kids hate him. So he walked into this situation and doesn't even know it. Oh, and he claims his walker is magenta not pink - that just shows you how much he knows. :P
And I have no clue where the mother of August Christopher gets all these police themed-clothes in sizes people over the age of 10 can fit in.
