Page Title: No Neck at All!



{Video opens on the lined whiteboard. Strong Bad's boxing glove, holding an uncapped marker, pops in.}

STRONG BAD: On today's skills of an Artist, we're gonna draw one of my {logo appears} oft-requested specialties: the Muscleman {pronounced musk-el-man}. {logo fades out} Here we go. We start with a little seagull.

{Strong Bad draws a two-bumped curve.}

STRONG BAD: Caw, caw! And a reflection of that seagull.

{Strong Bad draws a similar two-bumped curve below the first one, upside down.}

STRONG BAD: {drawing a vertical line in the center to connect the pair} And he's spitting on his reflection. And now an underjohn.

{He draws a curve beneath the lower, upside-down seagull.}

STRONG BAD: And a second-tier underjohn. {he draws a smaller curve below the first underjohn} and a third tier underjohn.

{Strong Bad has drawn a third curve below the second underjohn, creating the image of six-pack abs.}

STRONG BAD: {drawing a two-bump curve on the left between the abs and pecs} And now for to {draws same curve on the right} fill out these abs, {draws a second-tier below the first on the left} some cheese curds. {draws a second-tier cheese curd on the right} And some more cheese curds there. Oh, that's lookin' pretty good.

{Strong Bad begins drawing on the top.}

STRONG BAD: Now let's do his arms. {Strong Bad has drawn a shape with alternating long and short curves on the left, resembling a beefy arm} He got these little... points wherever his joints come together, {draws a similar alternating shape on the right} where the muscles just pinch up 'cause there's under such strain.

{Strong Bad has closed off the left arm with a small hand.}

STRONG BAD: Don't forget to give him super-tiny hands {draws a small hand on the right} to make the muscles look even bigger by comparison.

{Strong Bad has added lines between the pecs and the beefy arms to connect the arms to the body.}

STRONG BAD: And now let's add some shiny bulge-uals. {draws a line on the left bicep and tricep} But nothing accents muscles more {draws lines on the right tricep and bicep} than bulging veins! Here's the slanterior canal-veinal.

{Strong Bad has drawn a Y-shaped bulge on the left bicep. He draws another one on the right bicep.}

STRONG BAD: And the ulterior canal-veinal. And then the neck hump. Musclemans {pronounced musk-el-mans} don't have necks.

{Strong Bad draws a large round mound on the top where the head should be.}

STRONG BAD: They got neck humps! {draws a circle inside the mound} It's not a hunchback. It's a neck hump.

{Strong Bad draws three short lines on the circle to give the man a face.}

STRONG BAD: Now if there's one thing I know about drawing Musclemans, {pronounced musk-el-mans} it's that you don't wanna draw aaanything below the belt.

{Strong Bad draws a horizontal line blocking off the space below the Muscleman's abs.}

STRONG BAD: So let's put him in front of a desk!

{Strong Bad begins drawing the left side of a desk.}

STRONG BAD: Couple sheets of paper there, {draws the right edge of the desk} maybe he's hosting a talk show. {draws a couple of sheets of paper on the desk} Or struggling his way through a two-page exam. {imitating a Muscleman, drawing a thin pencil next to the papers} Oh, this new patient paperwork is sooo hard to fill out!

{Strong Bad has accidentally rubbed off a little bit on the Muscleman's abs.}

STRONG BAD: And last, {draws three curves coming off the right bicep} let's give him some convulsing {draws three curves off the left bicep} bundles, as his skin {draws three curves coming out from the right and left sides of the neck hump} strains to hold back the tidal wave of musculature.

{Strong Bad points his marker on the part that was accidentally rubbed away.}

STRONG BAD: {speaking quickly} And I accidentally erased that part. I mean, I didn- it was on purpose!
