Time-wasting

I have wormed my way back onto the Xfm website. Again.

This time they're asking for drawings of Boycie from Only Fools and Horses, and who am I to turn down such a request?

So this afternoon I wasted a bit of time sketching one out, and I emailed it in.

Don't judge me - everyone else was down the pub. What? It was a Friday afternoon.

Anyway, you can see my pic in its natural setting HERE, but for anyone who can't be bothered to click the link, here it is with accompanying caption.


I'm quite pleased with it, even if my pen did begin to run out towards the end, and one of his eyes looks a bit wonky.

Hey, that's really good. If you hadn't have said who it was - and didn't have him yelling: Marlene!, I'd still have known.

Brilliant!

Heh heh, ta! We've got a big Only Fools and Horses fan in the office, so I tested it on him before I submitted it (before I added the "MARLEEEEEENE!"), just in case it was crap!

Tara said...

I don't know the show you speak of, but those other drawings people submitted don't compare to yours. Nice lines and mustache and everything! Great detail, is what I think I'm getting at. :D

You're not missing much, Tara. It's a British comedy that somehow has become highly reverred over here. It's funny in places, but in my opinion not amazing.

(Braces himself for torrent of abuse from Only Fools and Horses fans...)

Thanks for your appreciation of my artistic skills though!

Dude that's awesome! He only has two forms, the angry MARLENE! (pictured) or the smug cigar smoking HEHEHEHE! pose.

Tim said...

Ha ha - ta! The 'MARLENE!' was a bit of a last minute addition, hence the fact it's squeezed off the side of the page!

Kudos for the new banner, it's cool!

What is this fools and horses malarkey all about? Is it as unfunny as To the Manner Born?

Tim said...

Oh, T-Bird, you caught me during my work in progress!

Do you like it? I'm torn, but perhaps that's because I was so used to the old one...

Only Fools and Horses? Surely you know about it? Del Boy? Rodney? Trotter's Independent Traders?

No?

Lucky you!!!

No idea who this is, but good draw-ring. The other one makes him look a bit like Hitler.

Tim said...

Thanks Dinah! Although, in hindsight, I think he actually does look a bit like Hitler!!
