Not-So-Undisclosed Santa

So, my good friends and I decided to do a Secret Santa together. Except, it was only secret for about 30 minutes. We wanted to know who each other got too badly to keep it a secret. I got my friend, David (whose blog you can check out via a link on this page - David Talaski). David likes Pugs a lot, so I wanted to draw him and myself as if we were Pugs. David is wearing the hat, and I am screaming at him. This drawing fits our personalities quite well, if you know us. The David Pug is supposed to look shocked, but he also ended up looking kind of dumb because of his expression. That was not my intention, but I think it makes it even a bit more humorous. I can't wait to give this drawing to David today!

The Von Uzbek

Here's my creature that I designed for Quick Sketch during week three. This is just the profile pose I used to finalize my design. I'll post a more dynamic pose soon.

And here's the description I wrote for it. I wrote it in about five minutes before class, so it's not the greatest. And yes, it's supposed to be a slight caricature of myself:

Name: Von Uzbek

Overview: The Von Uzbek is an aggressive, fearless, and short-tempered creature that lurks in swampy environments. This species is extremely intelligent and stealthy, allowing it to ambush its prey quite easily. When threatened, the Von Uzbek rises to its full height of 6 to 8 feet, turns a dark shade of red, and lets out a piercing scream that brings sudden death to its victims.

Keywords: Vicious, Looming, Crazed


Height - Females: 5 ft when hunched over; 8 ft when fully extended
; Males: 3 ft when hunched over, 6 ft when fully extended
Weight - 200 - 400 lbs

Environment - Swampy Regions

Prey - Being a carnivore, the Von Uzbek will eat any species that it can overpower

Predators - Any species that is able to overpower the Von Uzbek
