A friend of mine asked me to sketch this for him as a Valentine's gift to his girlfriend. Thanks to my friend Caitlin for photo help.

Thought this would make for a fun etch. Image based off of the greatest tabloid story ever told, "Bat Child Found in Cave!" from an early '90s edition of Weekly World News. I was a huge fan.

Another profile picture that doesn't actually feature a person. Here we have my friend J, drinking and wearing a tiger mascot costume, owned by me (I own a lot of mascot costumes, purchased for use on my comedy site, Robot-Frank.com.)

Often when doing these I'll do a very rough version beforehand of basically just the important features, whether that be the shape of the body or the facial layout. Doing this helps me to get an idea of how to size everything on the real attempt. Sometimes those early rough sketches end up with facial details I can't replicate when I'm trying really hard, which causes me to consider just making the rough sketch the final etches. That's what I did here; not because I felt I nailed anything in particular, I just wanted to do a quick etch in that haphazard style and this is what I ended up with.
