Trying my hand at working digitally.  I sketched the illustration in pencil, scanned it in, and all the rest was done in Photoshop.

Oodles of Doodles

Sorry I haven't been around the blog lately.  I've been working on a project for Amplify Science.  Unfortunately, I can't really post anything from that project yet.  However, I just sent the finished illustrations off to the publisher which freed up some time to doodle.

Some time ago I posted about character design exercises.  Well, I'm doing it again.  It is such a great way to kickstart the creative process.

You can give it a try.  Print out the blank shape sheet. (Or create your own).  Sketch.  That's all there is to it.   I've attached mine for reference.   It's also a lot of fun to give a sheet to the kids and see what they come up with too.  You'd be amazed at the wide variety of characters that different people can come up with.
