Dogs in Green

Over the summer I dogsat a couple of dogs for a week. They were both really big dogs and huge sweetie-pies.

Fires and Sweaters

I had a concept in my head for a character with a ball of fire for a head. They would go around and do everyday things and be all normal. He/she likes to wear winter clothing even though their head is made of fire and probably won't need the extra heat.
Sweaters are her/his favorite.

A Lazy Day

Was working on character development for my Mole So Die story. I'm still trying to pin down the main characters personalities so that they're unique on their own but all have something in common.
Here I was working on Amadi's personality and his responses to others. I was thinking that he could be reclusive due to the way people treat him back in the village, always disapproving and unsatisfied with his behavior. So he feels more at peace when he's away from the village. 

Currently, I am working on making a piece based off of the sketch above. I plan on experimenting with coloring techniques once I complete the line art. This is what I have so far. I've been saving jpegs at certain points to document my process.

Bear Coat!

My family and I went to Chicago towards the middle of the summer. While we were there we visited the Field Museum. There was a lot of cool stuff in their exhibits. One of the exhibits was about people living in the arctic long ago and what their lifestyle was like. And that's where I found this little guy here.

I'm not sure if he's supposed to be an important person like a shaman or just a happy dude in a bear skin coat, but it got me thinking of what it would be like if the Mole So Die characters were placed in different cultures and environments. So I sketched some ideas of them living in the arctic with the addition of a few desert sketches.

More Mini Sketch Adventures

I filled up the last pages of my small red sketchbook.
It's mostly people sketches with the addition of Mole So Die stuff and a very angry bat.

Beavers and Beavers

I started to replay my Pokemon Pearl game a couple of weeks ago. So far I have an team of a penguin and a big chubby beaver. And then I learned that beavers are fun to draw. So then I drew a lot of beavers.

Zoo Sketches Now with 20% More Dinosaurs

I went to the zoo and they had recently added dinosaur robotics throughout it.
They had a pterodactyl at the front entrance. I drew that one a lot along with other things at the zoo.

Finding Your Self...Portrait

I've been wanting to make a new self portrait that I can use as my icon for my various websites, but I have trouble finding a drawing of myself that I'm satisfied with. I started sketching a bunch of ideas. Haven't found one that I like 100% yet, but I'm still working on it. I was thinking the other day of possibly making my self portrait creepy. I'll have to work out my ideas more. These are some of the sketches I have so far.

Little Yellow Fish

I went to the zoo to draw at the aquarium. 
Fish are really fun to draw because they come in so many shapes and colors. 
While I was drawing there was a yellow tang that stopped swimming back and forth like the other fish. It was swimming in small circles in a single spot by the glass. It did that for a long time and I'm sure why.

These are some of the sketches I drew.

I really like bulldogs.
They're so pudgy and short. 
They are also dogs which is a really big plus.
