I should have done this at least a week ago, but never seemed to get round to it. No decent excuses! Anyway, I had a bash at some quick sketches on Friday. My first thoughts were animals, but then I thought perhaps children instead for a change.
I started with this character, who I thought was quite cute (if a bit boss-eyed) but a little passive on her own. So I introduced some action, to add a bit of humour:
Since this isn't a commissioned piece, I thought I might experiment a bit with technique. So instead of colouring it in pastels, I imported the sketches into Corel Painter and tried a bit of digital painting.
I'm not 100% sure I like it, but it's ok. I've tried to keep some mark making, but the marks tend to feel crude to me, compared with real drawing! Any tips or thoughts gratefully received...
