Day 171 - Erniiieeee!
Bert: Ernie? Ernie, come here… did I just make a complete fool of myself?
Ernie: [patting Bert’s shoulder] Absolutely, Bert.
Bert: Take me home. I feel terrible. The Muppet Show, Season 1, Episode 2
Been a while since I’ve drawn some Muppet characters, so I went for another duo from Sesame Street. Ernie and Bert (or is it Bert and Ernie?) have such a timeless comedic sense that I still chuckle when I watch them. I think most people can see themselves as having Ernie or Bert moments; when we’re naive and fun-loving, or when we’re boring and thoughtful.
There are more things I like about this picture than I dislike. Bert’s hair is too big, and whatever shading I tried to do in Ernie’s mouth did not work, but everything else looks fantastic. Bert (hair aside) may be my best Muppet drawing to date.
