School has kept me super busy as of late, with a lot of projects that have needed me to spend a whole lot of time on them -- I never did get to work on my Halloween pictures, which makes me pretty sad. BUT! Now I've got a bunch of doodles that I've been working on while I'm in classes. My Figure Drawing instructor, who also teaches Illustration, was really interested in one drawing that I did:
That was a drawing for my Digital Media Techniques class, but my other instructor loved it so much, she asked me (and encouraged me) to draw a whole bunch of characters in this fashion because she feels as though they would be really great to market. So, you'll see an influx of little plush peeps. Which I may or may not refer to from here on out as Plusheeps. Here's a sketch compilation of a bunch of these little guys that I've done so far, either just because or for other class projects:
So, as you can see, the initial sketch for the illustrator portrait is there, as well as several other little people. I've even thrown in the demons from Straight to Hell in there! Some of these will get thrown into other class projects -- namely the little guy in a fuzzy coat and the snow man. They're probably going to be used for a greeting card project that I have in Digital Media Techniques.
Anyway, hopefully I'll have a ton of these little dudes to put up from here on out. I'm going to try to get a couple of them done on some 6" x 6" bristol that I have, and then ink and color them in, and maybe put them about like paper children. I even thought about putting together a calendar of sorts using this style of character.
Also, since it's super hard for me to thank EVERYONE who gives me a watch or fave, I've added thanks at the bottom of my journal entry -- I do appreciate ALL of the faves and watches, believe me! I will, however, continue to give Llamas in return for Llamas given!
So, hopefully school will calm down a little soon - winter break is on its way, and I'll have a little bit of extra time to get my art on and get some other projects started and all that. Thanks for being so patient with me and all that! Talk to you all soon!
