Strong Bad's boxing glove holds a marker in front of a whiteboard that has been lined so as to look like notebook paper, and the music from the Trogdor-drawing scene in dragon plays throughout the video. As he says the title, it appears on the screen, with "Skills" in yellow, "Artist" in horizontal rainbow, and "of an" slowly fading in. Weclome back to more Skills of an Artist! Today is alliteration day! We're gonna draw: {turning his glove with each word} Strong Sad's severed soolnds! Let's go! I make drawing, dot-dot-dot!
Video cut. Strong Bad draws two vertical lines on each side of the page. Everybody, side-take your hearts out! {makes sound effects for the second line}
He closes the bottom of the shape with a curved line. And then we do a close-'em-up here... Look like a little smile... {gestures across the line} just a... teeny smile... hrrmm?
Video cut. He adds two hump shapes connected to the bottom. And now, some vaunted humps. These are his weird, giant, chitinous toenails. Now, let's sever this mug!
He closes the top with a zig-zagged line, curving downwards in the middle. Okay. I'd definitely use the serrated knife... so let's make the incision here... oh yeah, that looks so good...
Video cut. He has drawn a smoother curve within the zig-zagged line. He then starts drawing a cartoony bone sticking out of the severed surface. Now, here's his tib... fibula... leg... it's his leg bone.
Video cut. He has now closed off the top completely and added curved lines surrounding the bone. He then draws a drip down the right side of the leg, with two short bumps and a longer bump between them, and a circle next to the drip. And, you couldn't make a cut like that without, eurrh, a little mess. Just a little mess.
Video cut. He has now added hatch shading to the leg, toenails, and bone. He then draws a hatched shadow on the right. Uh, since this is Strong Sad, it's gonna be casting a pall.
He darkens the pall with a zig-zagged line over it. Look at that pall.
Video cut. But you can't leave a drawing like this lying around your house! What if Mom comes in? So, now we get clever!
Video cut. He adds dots resembling doorknobs to the toenails. Okay, let's see, here's a doorknob...
He adds vertical lines down the "doors". Video cut as he adds another line to each. Oh, these are some lovely... wooden doors...
Video cut. He has added a rectangle above the doors. The video speeds up as he writes "CHEFS BAFROOMS" barely legibly inside the rectangle. These are... the chefs'... bafrooms...
He adds a horizontal line across the bone and two vertical lines down to make the bone look more like a chef's hat. Because this is a chef's hat! You know what I'm sayin'? Look!
He draws a simple arrow pointing to it and writes "CHEF'S HAT" at the beginning of the arrow. Chef's hat! Mom will never suspect a thing!
He draws another arrow pointing to the blood drip and writes "MARINARA". And uh, this blood is, uh... marinara! Of course. Because this place is for chefs to use the bathroom!
He draws the roof of a small café awning to the left side. So, naturally there'd be a little... café over here...
Video cut; he has added chairs and a round table underneath. Little bistro... Look at that! {gestures broadly to the board} Mom will never know the difference!
He writes five S's underneath the drawing. Strong... Sad's... soft... severed... soolnds... and you could just tell mom that this "sssss"... that's the sound of the people— the chefs! Peeing! In the restroom! That's great, she'll love it! Okay! See you next time!
