@Northern, Thanks! It took an embarrassing amount of time to complete, but I think it looks pretty decent for a first attempt.

Speaking of embarrassingly long amounts of time spent drawing, here's a face that took me five solid hours to complete:

Image

It was supposed to be Warren, but I'm not sure I got the length of the face correct. Oh well, iterative process and all that! I'll post more versions when I get around to drawing his face again.

Nice! I am all in favor of portraiture. Also I'm going to assume the title here is a pun, in which case I applaud you.

Thanks again. I found the portrait easier to draw than any of the perspective things I tried previously (no need for changing depth or anything as much)

And yes, that indeed was the intent of the title, I'm glad someone else here enjoys the varied and nuanced art of punmanship.

Get it? Punmanship?

I'll just escort myself out now.

Yussss. I also find that once you're comfortable with a character's face, it's a heck of a lot easier to attach said face to a lot of different poses.

So this is Bison, my sleazebag satyr with commitment issues from a tabletop RPG I play with friends. Might have to remake him into a more modern sleazebag in the 1930's.

C'mon hun, lets have a little fun. Just take another sip of that drink there.

Back to fungi (my person drawing talents have been temporarily exhausted).

Introducing the classic mushroom: Amanita muscaria

Image

So this is Amanita muscaria, the classic "Toadstool mushroom". The group itself is characterized by scales on the (usually red coloured) cap of the mushroom, gills that are narrowly attached or free, and a definitive veil on the stem. These mushrooms also tend to have a slightly swollen base and some scales on the base of the mushroom, which are likely remnants of the volva.

Awesome! And great handwriting!

...Also, aren't those the Mario mushrooms? XD

Haha, yeah they are the Mario Mushrooms. Super pretty things, but don't eat them. They don't make you grow larger (fun fact).

These are all grand. The mushrooms, however, are particularly fine.

Thanks everyone! Fungi forever.

Here's another one: Pleurotus ostreatus

Image

P. Ostreatus. One of the most recognisable mushrooms in the forest that is ACTUALLY EDIBLE. These mushrooms are characterized by an off-centre, almost absent stem, white gills that run down the stem, and a greyish-white spore print. They also tend to be found in shelf-like clusters.

So I've been planning on reading some Lovecraft horror of late, and that inspired me to draw some Cthulhu-inspired things. So here's a mindflayer, prepared to steal your thoughts and control your soul.

Oh I do like your fungus drawings, lots of interesting textures. The squid legs are really well rendered as well.

@CZ - Budding Mycologist for the win!

@BigBadWolfie - Thanks! It took a while to figure out, but they're super fun to draw now!

On a related note, here's some bling I drew up for that same tabletop RPG I've mentioned before.
