{Tell it to the Marines}

There's always been something about nautical themed stuff I particularly enjoy.
Stripes, ships, anchors, water, etc, etc, etc... Maybe is the fact that I live in an island myself or maybe is just how awesome nautical things are {despite the fact that I'm TERRIFIED of open waters}. Anyway, last night {or really early this morning?} I saw this little doodle I made the other day of a sailor with waves behind him, grinning like an idiot. I had this urge to draw so I decided to give it a try. I've always been fan of old cartoons, as in1930s cartoons {Fleischer Studios, Walt Disney and all that} and how the shades of grey and silly animations worked so well. I was planing on making this a color drawing but decided to try and use grey scales. I kind of like the ending result and I think I'm going to play around with the grey palette for a little while.

Also, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! A little late for that but this is my first post of 2014 so yay! I don't hold on to useless resolutions I know for a fact I'm not going to make so let's leave it at that.
