New this week for The Standard!
This was a fun one to work on, but it had its challenges. For this one, same as last week, I had nearly two days to complete from start to finish. Drawing people is no problem, I can whip that out like nothing. For this piece, I did the sketch very quick, but wasn't quite happy with my first attempts at caricaturing the animals. I love drawing animals, but realized that it would have been better if I could have had more time for developing in the sketch stage. But under this kind quick turnaround, I had to just go for it. So I did most of my fixing and adjusting while in the painting stage. My final sketch changed dramatically, and the final result is much different. The other thing that I was trying to do is not draw the characters how I've seen them drawn so many other times . . . try to bring something new to the tabel. One thing for sure, the next time I have a go at something like this I'll be better prepared, I now know a few ways how "not" to do it!
