Here are the donkey sketches I had mentioned a few posts ago. I started out by wanting to just design an out-and-out character, but I was happy with most of the sketches (I put in a few of the least favorites too just to show progress) so I just did two pages of designs.  My favorite is the big shy one on the second page. He's just precious! :D  I also decided to just lay down a layer of simple Photoshop color over them to kick em up a notch so I don't just have yet another page of black and white sketches here...again.

Hippity Hoppity

I know I'm a little late on these, but only by three days, so it's not too far off. I was doodling in Illustrator again, and I did a cute little bunny and chick inspired by the cuteness of Easter. I took it one step farther and designed a pattern (Yes, an actual pattern. This is totally capable of becoming wrapping paper, napkins, packaging.. you name it!) with the two lil' guys and a few egg designs I came up with really quickly.  I provided the original pattern design with a larger swatch showing the design repeating. Patterns are..I don't wanna say fun cuz sometimes they're just a pain...interesting.. to do so I might do a few more to expand my portfolio.

Group Shot

Looking at my last post, I figured it'd be nice to have a post of all the lil' guys together on one page. 

Last of the Savannah Cuties

Well, this is it. The last 4 of my Savannah Cuties characters. BTW Matt, good guesses on the animals before. :)  The antelope in the first post is still my favorite, but I'm happy with them all. It was fun drawing an ostrich an wildebeest and a few other animals that I rarely ever draw. Lions and stuff I tend to do all the time.

Fun Stuff at EPCOT

I went to EPCOT today and evidently I was in a detailed pencil landscape-esque mood because that's what I drew.  I'm really happy with these, mostly because I can't remember the last time I drew a nice, shaded landscape sketch...if ever.  The top one is a part of the coral at The Seas aquarium viewing area, and the second is a cool-looking lantern that's actually a hidden speaker in the China pavillion.

Wundas from Down Unda

So I'm detecting a pattern of blog activity for a month, followed by a month of nothing and then something again. I'm going to have to be more aware of this pattern in the future so I can kick it in the butt. MARCH WAS A CRAZY MONTH and I hope a month like it NEVER EVER HAPPENS AGAIN IN THE FUTURE OF MANKIND. The economy sucks. And that's all I have t' say 'bout that.

Anyway, I was doodling (*gasp*) for fun (*GASP*) the other day and for no reason I started doodling some kangaroos. Which I liked. So they now have a home on the internet. Enjoy. I did some little donkeys too but they're not quite there yet. Hopefully they'll make their way here soon. They're too cute to give up on yet.
