So here are some sketches...the top are some character designs for fun...the rest are color studies...which were not as fun until the end.
Color is the final step for me...and quite frankly...I would rather just draw. I guess I am lazy like that...but I also feel like I would rather be a master draughtsman than anything else.
Anyway, the middle is colored pencil...which I actually like to work with...it took about 30 minutes...I was trying to be really loose.
The bottom is water color from the tube. I like this too...and it is actually more forgiving than I thought it would be.
I will probably take the bottom shrek-like character and try to flesh it out with colored pencil and ink...I wanted to scan and post this version just to see the difference.
