Rod's Duck Farm Presents: How to Draw Duck Lips


Now you can share in the ecstacy of drawing ducks the Rod's Duck Farm way. The trick to drawing caricatures is "capturing the essence of what makes the object unique (and exaggerating that essence)."
Next time you are bored out of your skull, get some paper and draw things. Add duck lips and you will have duckological art. Get really crazy and add webbed feet .... you could be like that John James Audubon guy. I'm seeing portfolios, "Ducks of the World" ..... Apple Duck, Banana Duck, Football Duck, Empire State Building Duck.
Quack, Quack!

Hi Quackers!

Just found this strolling around the blogosphere from http://infinitelycrazy.blogspot.com

thought it somehow seems to be a perfect fit with the lips thing.....:

February 2nd - Duck-Billed Platypus Day:

Not only do they look incredibly odd, they're also the world's only venomous mammal. What could be better? So, stick a duck-bill on your face, attach some poisonous spines to your ankles, and go nuts. Of course, if you did the first two, number three is probably already covered.


enjoy Ducky!
have a duckilicious day!!

Maybe it was Morris the cat?
Some of those ducks sound religious, like they are involved in sects.
I guess that platypus may be half duck, half cat. But now I'm not sure whether to keep celebrating groundhog day when the platypus has claimed February 2nd.
Do you surf in the water? Surf's up? IM calling?
Quack, Quack!

red-dirt-girl said...

Yes....I believe we need to give homage to most excellent Ducky billed Platy - cats.....tell groundhog to move over - he's had his 15 minutes of fame!

Yes...surfing....mmm....from a post over at RDPoetry......just about trying to learn to surf the big waves that life throws at you.....lately I've been surfing Hawaiian style.....you know - tubing????!!! And kitties don't like water - hence the wetsuit.....but we ARE friends to ducks......cartoons have given us a bad rep.....and so sometimes (such as these times) cats have to hang on to their boards with claws and do some cat paddling so as not to drown.......have I out metaphored myself yet?????

Keep it hangin' ....LOL

I thought duck lips were from bad plastic surgery.

"if people spent more time drawing ducks they would spend less time drawing Beer, and Guns, and lines in the sand. I think I may go draw down the moon.

Dave said...

Steve - I don't really see a problem with drawing beer but that doesn't make your comment any less profound. In nearly every case, I'd say we are better off drawing duck lips than guns or lines in the sand. I duck whenever I see anyone drawing guns or lines in the sand!

Rod - In case you didn't know, the Ducks are leading their division and trail Nashville by only two points for the lead in the Western Conference standings. They may make a good run for the Cup this year!

Cheers!

Rod's Duck Farm said...

Wow, Jessica Simpson with Duck Lips! (Maybe she has Duh Clips?)No wonder the Ducks are ahead, making a run for the cup.
There are those who suspicion that Ursula lives in or near Downieville. How much closer to a duck can you get than? (Duck version of vaudeville?)
With ducks, you can draw without getting drafted, and if you're not quick on the draw .... it doesn't matter. That Steve is pretty observant.
Thanks for thinking Ducks.
Quack, Quack!!
