Meet the Pope-achu!

An art slave draws for your amusement! Bwahaha!

  


If you're anything like me you love drawing, you love people who can draw, but totally suck at it yourself!  Minutes turn into hours as your squiggles bring nothing but heartache and sorrow.

Well, that's why I coerced character designer Kevin Edger into helping us out. As an "Animu" fan himself , he briefly spoke on some aspects of design and then did a quick rendering for us. The subject, inspired by a recent viewing of Angels and Demons, is none other than his holiness, the Pope-achu!

  


Pro tip: When recording for long periods, set up a tri-pod! But hey, its a learning process.

@John_Martone: Please do! The future of humanity depends on it!

Awww...Pope-achu is so adorable! I want to take him home and cuddle him.

What was that funky song in the background?

@Sigue: It subconsciously is, anyway.  All I knew at the time is that Popes shore do need beatin' sticks
