Gum Gum Person with flying disc

I redid the legs multiple times. I always make them too long. I need to bone up (ho ho) on GGP anatomy more.

This was relatively quick, but I intend to draw more Gum Gum People over the next while.

Gum Gum Person as David Byrne in “Road to Nowhere”

This was requested as an emoji in Discord. A Gum Gum Person “dancing” like David Byrne in the video for “Road to Nowhere”:

Reference from the video:

And why not check out the video while you’re at it? It’s a good song.

Drawing a Day, Day 26: Your favorite snack

I chose chocolate, which is kind of generic, but mostly I wanted to draw a gum gum person with chocolate smeared all over its face.


A pixel art Gum Gum Person

I asked myself, “I wonder if there’s some web-based pixel art maker out there?” So I entered the following as a search in DuckDuckGo:

pixel art maker

And it turns out there is a site with that exact name, and it does exactly what you would expect. I like it when things turn out this way.

Here is my quickly-made pixel art Gum Gum Person. Note that I did this with a mouse using my right hand. I am not right-handed.

I say it’s almost but not quite the stuff of nightmares.

Inktober 2016 in February 2020

I finally decided to start drawing again because drawing is relaxing and I need to relax more. I chose to return to what got me (temporarily) rolling again–Inktober!

You might note that it is now February. This is correct. But I didn’t take part in the first three Inktobers, so I’ve decided to start with the first set of prompts from 2016. I won’t necessarily post one per day, but I’ll try, because the quick turnaround is part of the fun.

The one thing I am doing differently this time is featuring Gum Gum People in not just some, but ALL of the prompts. 31 days of Gum Gum People. Hee hee, as they would say.

Here’s the first prompt from Inktober 2016, FAST.


My first terrible sketch in Sketchbook: Gum Gum Person

This quick sketch (that’s my excuse, yeah) was made using Autodesk’s Sketchbook software on the Mac mini, using a Wacom Intuos tablet.

It’s a gum gum person and the color is off, the lines are weird and the face/head are not in proportion (I know my gum gum people), but you gotta start somewhere.

For comparison, here’s a pair of gum gum people I drew on actual paper way back:

Gum Gum racing
It just seemed obvious that Gum Gum people would race on magic bananas.

For my next trick I will try drawing something decent. Or maybe another gum gum person.
