Bear in a tutu

Last week a friend of mine, Joe Pearman, asked me "what should I draw?"  I told him (and don't ask where it came from, cause I don't know) "draw a bear in a tutu."  Over the weekend I had a bit of sketching time and I thought that the whole bear in a tutu thing was a good idea so I drew a couple up and threw some quick color on them for your enjoyment.  Which one do you like best?  Enjoy.
P.S.  Hopefully I can get Joe to put his bears up on his blog.  If you want to bug him about it his blog is http://josephpearman.blogspot.com/

Daily Sketch 3

Do you think it's funny that I call these ones Daily Sketch and I've done 3 of them in like a month?  Doesn't seem very "Daily" to me.  Oh well.  I did this one after I had watched a short animation of a cupcake called Muffin Jack and Jeremy.  I tried to find it to link to it, but I guess it's been taken down.  Bummer.  The animation was fantastic and I just needed to draw a muffin (or cupcake or whatever) running in fear.  Go figure.  Anways, enjoy.

I drew up this sketch about a month ago and thought he could use some color.  I had just taken my kids to see The Croods at the theatre and had cavemen on the brain I guess.  I'd also been looking at the concept art on the film, especially the drawings by Carter Goodrich who I am a HUGE fan of.  This is mostly inspired by his drawings.  I thought it would be cool to put it on a cave wall just for kicks.  enjoy.

Cup O Doodle bird thing

This was my second attempt at the Cup O Doodle sketch.  I originally was going to draw a snake and my wife looked at the lines given to me and told me that was too obvious a solution and I had to find something else.  I listened to her.  I usually do.  My life goes a lot better that way.  Enjoy.

New Cup O Doodle Sketch

This week a friend of mine encouraged me to try out Cup O Doodle.  It's a blog where they post up sketches of random lines or stains or shapes.  You look at them and then try and make a sketch out of the madness of it.  Think of it kind of like a Rorshach test, except that instead of telling people what you see in the ink blots you are sketching it out for them and filling in the little gaps.  Here's my first attempt at it. The first sketch is what I came up with and the second I have an overlay of the lines they gave me to use. It was pretty fun.  Enjoy.

Akimi Bird

Came across this piece recently.  I was doing concept art for a Play Station video game (Akimi Village, you should check it out).  And I was drawing a lot of buildings.  The buildings themselves were fun but I wanted to draw something organic and alive, so I put a big bird perch on top of the building so I could design a fun bird to go along with it.  And here he is.  enjoy.

Daily Sketch 2

Don't know what brought this on, but I thought today I'd draw a boxer (Boxer-get it?).  My wife loves these type of dogs and I think I have to agree with her.  They've got alot of personality.  That and they're like 90% muscle (I'm pretty sure a boxer would kick my butt if we ever got in a fight).  Enjoy.
