Little Watercolor Sketches

[7 Aug 2008 | By | 4 Comment(s) | 2,484 views ]

Finally, some ART! In an attempt to get out of my creative funk, I was playing around with my watercolor pencils again yesterday. I missed (for the first time this year!) Illustration Friday last week, and I’m bummed because my goal was to do something new for it every week. And here it is thursday, and I’m about to miss a second week! So I’m making up for it by posting 2 Pictures–last week’s and this week’s themes–today.

Oh, and check out the interview I just posted with artist Cory Godbey.


S is for Spokesmodel
(for the IF theme Canned)

One of the monsters of my imagination displaying a can. I started sketching him and he just looked like a spokesmodel to me.

P is for Penguin (for the IF theme Poof!)

Don’t ask what this has to do with Poof. I was thinking of a ‘muff’ but in my head I was calling it a ‘pouf’. After I finished I realized that the pictures has nothing to do with poof. Oh well. He’s cute anyway. I don’t like the way I colored the P though. I should have just left the center white, with the blue around the edges.

Oh, and I posted these character sketches on MondayArtday, so I figured I’d share them with you guys here too, since I know I have some robot fans out there. You’ll remember him, he’s been featured here before.

    He is really very cute. Nice illustration work. I really like your sketches as well.

    The sketch with the juggling multiple books is awesome. I think I like that one the best because you always think of robots as being able to do anything. He/She looks like they are very human juggling to many things at once.

    Hey, these are fabulous! I’m glad you posted them — better late than never, right? The spokesmodel monster is hysterically wonderful. I adore his skinny legs. He’s a friendly monster, I take it. And a penguin with a muff, well, that sure as heck says puff to me! Great!

    Mmmmm, thanks for the virtual cookie!
