This assignment was another full figure, but I went rouge on this one. Heinrich Kley has some incredible pen drawings, but he also is incredibly dated with some of his images. So BEWARE if you decide to google him. Here is the very short wiki article about him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Kley
Here is an ink drawing by Heinrich Kley from the book "The Drawings of Heinrich Kley" page 74:
Alright, speed paint, expect more of these or feel free to yell at me to do more. 1.5 hours From blank canvas, to drawing, to where it is. Sometimes it's about the feeling of an object then the details.
The next part was to take a silhouette and explore three different styles. Next part: Pick one and draw the final line work. Then: 3 different color versions. While I like the shapes of the character, costumes and all that, I still don't know how I would want him to look when he is animated. Thick lines? Thin lines? solid blocks of color? Color with edging of texture? Painterly?
