Elfdin Girl Head Rotaton

Here's another class demo for my beginning character design students. I started it on November 5 then did the 2 back views on December 2 and completed the pencil line early today on December 5. Sometimes it's not possible to do the entire work at once so I break it into sittings and eventually complete the drawing in class.

I'm sure you've heard it before from me that rotations are an essential aspect of professional character design as they are the bridge between the concept and production. Also they're excellent practice for developing solid draftsmanship skill and they're fun to do.

Crash Bandicoot Doodles from 2013

In the early days of posting on my blog it was a time of uncertainty for the Crash Bandicoot community. I noticed a high level of anxiety among fans so I did what I could to contribute to keep Crash alive by drawing him. It had been a long time and only periodically would do something I wasn't especially excited about.

I knew I had to practice so on September 19 2013 I sat down and sketched Crash to get back into it. These are the pages I did minus some images that didn't quite make the cut. 

I'm archiving my work from the past few years. That's what lead to this rediscovery. It was fun and something special drawing Crash back then. Like visiting an old friend you haven't seen in a while and catching up on things.
