Last week, while mindlessly doodling, this little guy showed up on my sketch paper...I do many of these kind of doodles each day but for some reason this guy resonated with me. I did him up as an experiment in a softer look, ( see earlier blog post) but he persisted. So I have been trying getting to know him more thoroughly to see if he might find a place in a story or image someday.
I often do this by way of a crude sculpture. This way I can see him in 3D and see how the light might fall on him in any given situation..Then I explore the possibilities with inks and pencils.
I have posted a little of my process here for those who might like yet another peek behind the curtain.
