Character Design IV

Another kid with her pet. Is it just me or do her eyebrows make her look like she is planning to cook the pig…. ? 😀

Watercolour and ink.

Do you have a pet?

Character design

Time to revive my blog!

While I am working on something new, I am updating my portfolio with some older illustrations that I did a bit more than a year ago. Now properly scanned in. The idea was to practice character design. For this I chose the title Take Your Pet to School Day.

Take Your Pet to School Day II

Some of the initial sketches of the class room.

Have a great weekend! I will be out enjoying the sun.

Happy Holidays II

Another sketch I had forgotten about for a project that didn’t work out. I still quite like it. Santa’s reindeer meets a goat.

Merry Christmas

…and happy holidays!

I wanted to do a proper Christmas card but ran out of time. But I found this sketch that I did last summer for a book project that didn’t work out.

Take your Pet to School Day IV

A ferret! I think they are so cute. Somehow I feel that both of these guys could cause some trouble…. wanted to unwanted.

Take your Pet to School Day II

Another character design.

Any name suggestions for the characters are more than welcome.

Have a lovely weekend!
