Too Much Time On My Hands by Steven Novak


Available to buy on…

Back when I was interested in super detailed pencil renderings I pulled this drawing out of my butt. It’s insane. My eyes hurt by the time I was done with it. My friends looked at me weird and my parents said they no longer wanted me as their son. I was shunned by society as a whole once they realized the amount of time I must have spent hunched over my drawing table working on a drawing of a frog.

In fact, there’s SO much detail in this that if it doesn’t make you pee your underpants I’ll pee mine.

Either way someone is walking out of here bow-legged, stinky, and embarrassed.

    It looks like a black and white photograph……….VERY impressive :)

  • The most impressive thing about it is that I had such a boring life around the time I made this that I had time to actually make it. Or wait…maybe that’s the opposite of impressive. ;)

    Well I’ve got to say Steven you didn’t hold back on the detail, warts and all. When we were kids we thought handling frogs worked like a diaretic, only we used a different word. Your self-inflicted torture produced an amazing piece.

  • Nope, I didn’t hold back. In fact, I think I added more detail than there was in my reference. Why I would want to do that, I don’t know. Glutton for punishment maybe? ;)

    This isn’t just some frog Steven…. Look at him.. he is smart and observant… slow and careful with his movements … his eyes see all and he takes the time to see the beauty that surrounds him….. ….. hmmmmmmmmm sounds like the artist who created him :)
    You certainly are no frog my friend but I think your work and talent is increduble !!!!! (((((HUG))))))

  • Smart? Observant? Slow and careful? Seeing beauty? Hmmm…you got the slow part right, but that’s about it. ;) Seriously though, thanks Naylor.
