The images were taken from a strategy book and as I recall, my rendition was about 5 to 6 times their original size. This took a lot of skill at that time, because I had to mentally enlarge every portion of their bodies, without the use of a grid as a guide; I refused to take the easy route. I drew them with a #2 pencil, and a black gel-ink fine point pen for the final outline. Believe or not, the shading was done with my fingers and a piece of construction paper. A little trick I learned from my 7th grade art teacher Ms. Goldstein. If you notice, I ran out of space on both of the drawings. This was one of the difficulties in enlarging things from their original size without using a grid to guide me, but I enjoyed the the challenge and appreciated the results. Elum was my favorite, not only drawing him, but the job I did with the shading. I was proud of the results back then, and still feel the same way now. Check out how I use to sign my name. Memories...

I hope to have more to come. Hopefully some of my original characters.
Peace and Love.
