 I decided to try re-sketching this in new colors and to keep a normal, bland style and theme this time. A storm knocked out our electricity for a bit, so I didn't get very far. But I like the way this one looks. This is still very rough, but you can see bits of my work process. I did this one free hand over my sketch, where as I used line segments and anchors for my line work before. The lines would obviously be cleaned up up on this, but I think the free hand makes the piece less stiff then the other. I also added in a little hat to the pensive worm on the orange.

I still have trouble creating a character in multiple positions, so the blue elephant looks a bit different to me then the first, but this was what I had in mind for an accompanying picture to the blue elephant on the left. A few people had mentioned this would make a good 'missing you' card. I'm not sure the sentiment works on the second part, but I thought I would share it with you all none the less.

Another sketch I decided to color. I experimented with it as well, but it came out much closer to what I had in mind.

I started this from one of the sketches I recently shared. I liked the composition and I do like the colors I used, more or less, but I experimented with texture and my line work and I'm not happy with the results of those at all. Regardless, I thought I would share it with you guys. I may rework it to try play around with my techniques a bit more.

*Sorry for the top being so close/cut off looking. This was just for fun so the display wasn't a huge priority when I decided to share it.

 Just a small sad little elephant doodle for fun and practice to try to get back in the drawing groove.


 These were extremely fun to doodle. Just sketched them out quickly and messily for fun and to practice. I would definitely like to work them into something usable, but we'll see how that goes I suppose.

Just another compilation of some random people/head sketches I've mindlessly doodled up lately.

A couple of pages from one of my brown paged sketchbooks.  Drawn with generic/mixed black ink pens and markers.

Green people and teapots

 A sketchbook page of some green people's heads. Or, um, something like that...

The teapot outline/shape was created with a sort of template (a wall hook actually). But I really liked it, so I traced the outline as best as I could to use as a template and decided to create this. I'm not sure what the middle should have inside, if anything. So I'll consider this a WIP as I may come back to it.

All characters belong to their respective owners.

 This wasn't the idea I originally had in mind, but this is what came from mindless doodling while trying to practice on vector-ish work. It makes absolutely no sense, which seems to fit my work quite well.

Worms?  Or something... I'm not sure what most of these are. Practice I guess. They were fun. I need to practice placement/perspective more. I never seem to line anything up right, especially on faces. Doing simple stuff like this helps...I think...

I may try coloring some of these. I still don't feel like I've got a specific technique I prefer to draw in. :/ But I think I'm getting closer each time to finding it.
