In case I don’t post anything else before the end of the weekend… Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I’m thankful to have all of you following and encouraging my nonsense for a couple of years now, and I wanted to take a moment just to say thank you!
So, I already established that I’ve been watching Disney’s Frozen a LOT this Christmas with my nieces and nephew, which inspired me to draw Olaf recently. While watching a recent new episode of the CBS show, 2 Broke Girls, I suddenly had a warped thought… Oleg… Olaf… and then THIS happened!
A mash-up of Frozen + 2 Broke Girls that I can’t believe I couldn’t already find having been done by anyone else online. Kat Dennings’ Max Black becomes Anna, while Beth Behrs’ Caroline Channing becomes Elsa… and, strangely Oleg becomes Olaf AND I suspect both of them do enjoy the warm hugs. 🙂
I like the way this turned out, and I hope it is as funny to everyone else as it was when I thunk it up in my brain. Please let me know what you think and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
Continuing the Christmas theme… Santa dropped by early for an extreme closeup portrait but couldn’t decide whether he wanted traditional or digital illustration work… so I did both! First, the completely hand-drawn version (pencil sketch w/ color marker finish) on a 7×10-inch comic backing board:
I followed that up, using the above baseline, to create a completely digital rendering in vector format:
Typical for my illustration work, I like the cleaner lines and sharper colors in the digital version. I must say, though, that aside from lacking a good match for skin-tone in the hand drawn version… both of these look remarkably similar for a change. Basically it’s a testament to my liking the hand-drawn one enough that I didn’t feel like I needed to make major tweaks or corrections in the digital re-render.
