Nerdy Guy

I originally wanted to punch a computer for this Nerdy Guy to have his arm around - but I didn't do it.  So I just photographed him on my laptop keyboard so he'd feel at home.  Give him whatever prop you like - a lunchbox maybe?

Don't you love his belly?  It is a circle on top of the large oval - the secret is to "outline" the shirt but stop outlining the circle when you reach the oval - and have his "pocket" overlap them both.  His head is a circle trimmed.  The rest is all my usual stuff.

Maria,

Glad you are enjoying the blog.

Since you are new and struggling, I'd suggest that you go back through the blog - just a few entries each day - and you will quickly learn which punches I use over and over.

If you want to make people just look at the past people - click on "punch folk" on the right side of the blog and you will see just people I have done - read those and you will learn how to make them.

If you want animals - click on "punch animals" and those posts will show up.

You can do it!

OK he is great. The only thing missing is his pocket protector with all his pens in it. Like a true nerd his pants are too short and his hair is too long on top since he hasn't had it cut in forever. His gut is big since he is always at his computer just munching on chips since he doesn't want to get up to fix a meal (oops that's me we're talking about). You are so ever the princess of punches.
