30 DDC - Day 18: A couple

I’m really pleased with this :) Normally when I try to draw Andy, it doesn’t look right but he turned out great in this.

Hip Cat - A doodle from the other day. I reckon this would look cool as a sticker!

30 DDC: Day 16 - Something that represents your favourite song.
Find the challenge here.
So my current favourite song is Peanut Butter by RuPaul. Me and Andy have really gotten into Rupaul’s Drag Race recently and he is my fricking hero! 
I decided to use this as a chance to try some really outrageous colours, mostly because the music video is all bright colours and words flashing up (while a bunch of men in boxers twerk). 
The image is pretty basic and such but I think it’s nice to have a few images in this challenge that are just simple to do and fun to play around with.
I will say, I do have other favourite songs xD I had thought of using There’s A Light by The Smiths as the inspiration for this day, but as a current thing, Rupaul is definitely someone I’m listening to a lot!

Little Blue Tit Says ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ - Well I’m ready for it :P I won’t be seeing my mum on mother’s day but her birthday in 4 weeks so… yeah. I feel like I need to get her something awesome as I haven’t visited home for a while. Also really happy with this blue tit!!!

Triceratops - I made this little cutie for Broccoli's Saturday Scribbles :) It made me thing that I'd like to do more dinosaur characters. Maybe do a cute little dinosaur bbq/picnic scene? We'll see.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 11 - Your favourite food.
Find the challenge here.
I will admit, I don’t draw food very often if you can’t tell xD I do hope to do some work entirely on food in the future to try and give it a go. But yes, my favourite food is burritos! I like them home made, I like them from Taco Bell, I absolutely adore the ones at Pancho’s in Manchester! They’re a food that is hard to get wrong and have many different ways of being amazing! 
(I feel like I really crapped out on this one with the image being so basic, but I’ve got those Friday feels and have other stuff to do, like I said, aiming to practice food soonish so I stop doing sloppy stuff like this!)

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 9 - Your favourite cartoon/anime character
Find the challenge here.
It’s BMO!
I have a lot of favourite characters who I love for different reason. In the end I chose BMO because there are so many things I love about this character!
For anyone who doesn’t know, BMO is the little robot from Adventure Time, and one of the things I think that is absolutely brilliant about BMO is that he/she is androgynous. She has no gender and the show often has the characters addressing him as both, as well as BMO often switching between things that are considered traits of both gender. Not to mention she’s a hoot! I always love the BMO Chop!
He also goes through a lot of shit with Finn and Jake. Seriously. They pop the bubble that BMO falls in love with and who asked if they wanted to get married; and then Jakes just laughs because he think’s BMOs pretending… also the egg. BMO is “pregnant” and carries one around and then when it gets knocked and breaks she’s having a freaking break down! 
I’ll shush now >.< or this could go on for a while!
