I did some more rougher sketches and deeper shading to work on my compositions and I came up with a few more concepts for my lil’ project.
Getting closer :3
I did some more that I wanted to show you, continuing to experiment with this simplistic and self-expressive style.
It’s self-expressive because it carries on with my impulse to record feelings and moments that I want to capture and the lining colour, as well as the extra details, is a reflection of that feeling. The muscle-man tells that muscles don’t compare to real, practical muscle and it’s comical of the typical “meathead” as they’re called around here. Another one to mention is the sleeping fella, whom resembles me and my consistent bouts of fatigue when I get up in the morning.
Like I said, it’s simplistic and self-expressive so although it’s cartoony and most often comical, it’s also personal :).
Just another couple of sketches to add to the collection: The Miner Mole and The Guide Goat. It’s a continuing development of The Animal Kingdom and the current progress is 12 out of 26, so I’m nearly halfway. It’s a long process, but it will reflect upon the time and effort spent to visualise this concept well. It’ll also show a development in my drawing skills since all those months ago that I started this.
Hope you enjoy the drawings and glad to have all you followers bear with me on this “journey” of sorts. See you tomorrow for the Haiku.
