Tuesday telegrammed  

Silly Girl announced  

@Tuesday rang in to say
Love the new drawings, the George one especially. Looks like you resolved the issue of having to capture his gaze correctly to make it look like him by drawing him not looking at the viewer, because that looks great!

a-hard-days-night-paul-11To prove that I can capture Georgeness in a direct stare. (RP)

Wow! How long did that take you? That's a fantastic drawing! You used one colour and still managed to make such an intense stare, great job

Thanks! a-hard-days-night-george-3 It didn't take very long at all. I was determined to prove that I could capture George's wonderfully direct stare. (I owe a great deal to the photo I used.) 

And as many, many photos of the Beatles (not to mention AHDN ) have taught me, monochrome is magic. 🙂

Give me the best photo in the world and I couldn't draw half as well. It's great and the more you do the more you'll keep getting better. Looking forward to future art 🙂

Sorry for the wait everybody... real life has gotten in the way of Beatley pursuits, but I've gotten some of real life out of the way now, so... 

This is the full version of my new-and-improved Paulvatar 2.0:

I know right? ahdn_paul_01 

It's getting better all the time. 

The picture I drew it from:

A good deal of imagination was necessary as some of the lines are... invisible...

Have you ever tried drawing The Beatles in the Yellow Submarine style of Heinz Edelmann?

Very nice drawings.  The Penny Lane one was quite touching, a fond tip of the hat. 

The George portrait was very Georgey, and the one with the guitar is noteworthy.  The John portrait brings out his "Marlon Brando" side (I believe he once said he feels torn between being a tough guy, like Marlon Brando, or being a more sensitive intellectual, like Wally Cox; I think this tension sort of lessened as the later years unfolded and he settled more into his sensitive side).

I'd like to second the person who suggested you tackle Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds !

New ones! 

Both drawings done from photos, these from inside the Revolver remaster booklet. 

George side profile. In the photo he's playing guitar (hence the strap on his shoulder), but I ran out of room on my paper. *sigh*

Yayyy... finally, a Ringo! (I really do neglect him shamefully. I'm so sorry Ringo.) Side profile (RP). Don't you dare say anything about his nose.

T'is my thread so I can double-post if I please a-hard-days-night-paul-11 

As you can see by the date marks, they were done a few days ago, but I didn't get them scanned in till today. 

 I've had my eye on this particular photo for some time.. too adorable... (RP)

 This is supposed to be more-recent Paul. My imagining him singing Another Girl live. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Is just me or are your Paul drawings a bit more "come alive"?  I didn't catch if you're a Paul fan or not.  Don't get me wrong, the others are good too; yet there's an extra je ne sais quoi about the Paul ones...

The main thing I get from your drawings is so much love for the Beatles, keeping that flame alive -- it's great!

@Pineapple Records Awww, thanks! I'm not as much a Paul fan as a Harrifan... but as I said upthread, George is hard to draw. Paul is easier-- he has the nicest features, I guess.

You're a closet Paulette. I'll be waiting for you to come out of that closet.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I used to be a Paulette and closet Fiendish Thingy. Now I've come out of the Fiendish Thingy closet, but of course Paul and I are still friends. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Yeah, I can see how George would be harder to draw -- he's sort of like a rough-hewn or unfinished statue; Paul is more like a Chinese doll or something 🙂

Hah! 

Well, maybe a little bit. But I have to say, he's awfully handsome for a rough-hewn statue... *goes into drooling fangirl mode*

I meant "rough-hewn statue" in a good way... a-hard-days-night-george-9

Don't you think that George looks just a little like Leonard Nimoy (Spock)?

ahdn_paul_06 Perhaps........ 

New drawing under spoiler. 

I don't suppose there's much mystery as to which photo I used for reference, eh? But try not to compare them... please. a-hard-days-night-george-9 (RP)
