Another Bear

For the collab animation we’re working on I also took it upon myself to design a bear character based on a friend’s concept sketches. At first he was cute enough.

But after looking at the concept sketch again I decided derpy-er is definitely the way to go.
He was pretty well received and I’m working on final model sheets for him, sloth, and Mr. Barkley now!


Gestures and Gents

Just some dudes this time. Gestures, hands, feets and some boys I liked well enough to finish.  Don’t smoke, kids!

Lately, I’ve been watching lots of my favorite older cartoons which has made me want to draw more cartoony-type stuff so… prepare yourselves for that storm.

Gestures and Ladies

I’m really enjoying my sketch class this semester, so I decided to clean up a couple of the gestures I like most.  If anyone’s interested in the sketchy, sketchy poses, I have a blog for the class over here.

And now just a couple of ladies since I don’t think I draw ladies enough, with a special appearance by yours, truly.  Some of these are observational, most are fresh outta my mind tank.

Walter Mitty

I’m not going to say much about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty except:

It took the spot of my all-time favorite movie before it finished and I’m not even going to embarrass myself by saying how many times I saw it in theaters *cough 7 cough*.  So naturally I drew some goofy fanart in preparation for a more ambitious piece I’m currently working on.

This was really simple, mainly for costume reference (every time I saw the movie I had to edit this a little more).mittyyy
Just a basic Walter design I might make into a sticker for my Mac.

I should probably mention that Ben Stiller’s huge influence on this film made me have to revisit all my favorite films/characters of his.  It’s getting a little out of hand.bensss“Did somebody say wonder?”

Progress Shots

I did these a while back for a coworker who wanted something for her husband that involved their little baby dog Sophie.  My go-to for traditional art at the time was Prismacolor markers, although I’ve recently fallen in love with Tombow brand markers.  Here’s the finished products as well as the progress shots.


The lighting isn’t the best in my apartment, but you get the idea.  They are an adorable couple, though!

I posted a simpler version of this one a while ago that I had done for some practice, but Anne liked it so much she wanted to buy it as well.  So I spent a little extra time on it making it cute.
