[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Welcome everyone to an extra special {opening titles enter, music begins} Skills of an Artist, in which I draw a draccus.

{Opening titles fade out.}

STRONG BAD: Now, what exactly a draccus is, I don't know, but I understand it's kind-of a fat lizard. And I can handle that. All right, let's go. We're gonna start with an incomplete toothpaste flip. You know what I'm talking about?

{Strong Bad draws his incomplete toothpaste flip with a vrrrt sound.}

STRONG BAD: Look at that. That looks ready to go on your toothbrush and seriously fight some plaque. Okay, now back here {Strong Bad draws a partially complete curve from the top-right corner} we'll partially complete it. And then we're gonna do three-finger squish count.

{Strong Bad draws a stubby shape with three curves on the bottom meant to look like a leg.}

STRONG BAD: One, two, three. Look at that! Three finger. Now over here gonna do another...

{Strong Bad draws three lumps on the left side for another foot.}

STRONG BAD: ...three finger squish count. Look at that. Looking great. And another—

{Strong Bad draws a third three toed foot underneath the right side of the bottom curve.}

STRONG BAD: —three finger squish count. Oh, this is looking so good.

{Cut. Strong Bad has completed the body by linking the center foot with the back one and lengthened the head curve.}

STRONG BAD: Keep this going. This will be his little mouth.

{Strong Bad draws a tongue sticking out from the right side of the mouth.}

STRONG BAD: And of course he needs a big fat tongue hanging out of it. Look at that guy. Now, for his face, let's do the old standby, a four-bean salad.

{Strong Bad draws two small figures in the cheeks on the sides of the head, and two small black drops in the center of the bottom.}

STRONG BAD: So, garbanzo, garbanzo, and for his nose, two black beans. Look at that, simple as that. The four-bean salad. You can't go wrong. Now he's covered with hard scales, so for those we're gonna do a series of lambasted C's. Let's get to lambastin'.

{Strong Bad makes humming noises as he fills the top and back of the lizard with a flurry of small C curves.}

STRONG BAD: You've never seen C's quite so lambasted. Oh yeah, he looks armored to the teeth. And from what I understand, these little guys like candy.

{Strong Bad draws a candy cane with the cane end on the left foot.}

STRONG BAD: So, let's give him a little... candy cane. That's right.

{Strong Bad draws stripes on the cane.}

STRONG BAD: Aw, that's so cute. Oh, this candy cane. He's got such a sweet tooth! That oops!

{Strong Bad draws a spiky, two-layered flame coming out from the left side of the mouth.}

STRONG BAD: He burped out a little blue flame. Look at that little Frampton!

{Cut. Strong Bad has written the word "burp!" on the left side and is writing the words "LITTLE FRAMPTON" on the right.}

STRONG BAD: Aw, that's what we should call him. "Little Frampton". I had kinda a problem there with the A and the M.

{Strong Bad adds umlauts above the merged A and M.}

STRONG BAD: And we'll just put umlauts over it. Looks like a special letter. From a foreign language.

{Cut. Strong Bad has added the words The Draccus below the name.}

STRONG BAD: Never before have an incomplete toothpaste flip, some three finger squish counts, and a four-bean salad, been put to such greater use.
