In progress: animal blend self portrait sculpture

So this is my maquette (sp?) so far for this assignment. It's meant to be a blend of myself and a polar bear... It has looked like a rat and meerkat so far, but hopefully it will look like a polar bear in the final version :o The hoodie is something I'm trying out... it isn't really working yet but I was hoping it would fill out the silhouette more and make the neck feel heavier while not changing the neck anatomy radically.

Drawing Salon 2/14

So I spent about 6-7 hours today drawing, which was great! I started working on the sketchbook project and then went to drawing salon tonight. From all the warm-up I was really happy with how almost all my drawings were turning out. Here is one sample but I will try to add a few more (probably some 1's and 2 minute drawings) tomorrow. This is a 5 minute pose.

Redesign on the brothers...

I stumbled upon a new idea last week for the brothers to be dressed up as fast food mascots. I thought it was funny but I had no idea how to make it work. Essentially they are going to be ex cons. The story is still up in the air, although Jeff Jackson liked the idea so much he came up with a full story surrounding these characters. I'll post that when I can...

I like this one so far.. It's a wip, as everything pretty much is right now, and I plan on drawing more face thumbs on it when I dare to actually express something.

This is something I did today at school.. I was playing around with making this character look more like an otter. I may not have succeeded there but it got me to play around with the face a bit more.
