I got inspired by lxjw to post something here because I haven't in a while... So here's some inked sketches of our boys.




Saw a picture I had in my Monkees photos folder on my computer, and wanted to draw this. It's always sad to see Peter out of some photographs during the time he quit the group. So I wanted to draw him in here...even though he's still sort of left out lol.





This was an old image I drew back in May and forgot to post it here.

Cool. BTW, my theory for my big epic Justus Era fic that I was trying to start as a round robin and just will end up writing it myself since no one added to it anyway...

Wait...

Oh right, my theory for Peter being gone is that he left to "find himself". And stuff happened. And I hope I do eventually write this. The "missing episodes" from 1969-1997 end up paralleling (is that a word?) the Real Monkees in some aspects.

Oh and smashing artwork. Lol. Peter and Micky don't look *quiet* right to me, but pretty damn good. I think Micky's a little too Aaron Lohr. Lol.

Haha I was flipping through images of Arron as Micky while I was drawing this too..So maybe it's the reason?...XD;(he's mighty fine...but needed to be skinnier and less muscly for playing that part. Still had the face though). But that fic idea seems groovy. <3 I could see him going on a journey to "find himself". :3

This is amazing. :D I LOVE IT!!!! Especially the second one. Mike's all like, "Why do I have to be on the bottom? *sigh*"

Thank you! :D Haha yeah he's the one that supports everyone. XD

I adore these!

Thanks! Glad you liked 'em. :D

Too cute! The second one really captures the Monkees romp spirit. Poor Mike, though. He'll have backaches for days!

Haha it does. :3 And yeah, poor Mike. XD

Oh man, reading that just totally made my day! I'm definitely glad, cuz these pictures are great. The first one, I just love their faces. Particularly Davy's <333

...And for some reason, I adore the way you draw noses. XD

But the second picture is my favourite. Mike's face is fantastic. Davy's too. I love how Mike is like "goddamn you guys are heavy," but Davy's got two people on top of him and he's just like "wheeee!"

Maybe he's too high to feel the pain he has been working out. I adore his face here too.

tl;dr, this is great, draw more please!

I like Mike in particular in that first one.

I really love these! I love the first one how Mike has his arm around Davy's shoulders. That is soooo canon. (cannon? I can never remember how many 'n's go in that word.)
Anyway, great job! Lots of fun!
Hugs,
Myristica
