An internet buddy of mine lives in Alaska, so while it's 40ºC here in Melbourne he and his pooch can be suffering through temperatures as low as -28ºC... Snow is not pleasant on a doberman's bare paws, so Snoop gets booties.

Attack of the Blobheads Pt. 1

I've been a bit of a free agent at work the last couple of days so I've had a lot of time to sketch. I was starting to feel frustrated because there were too many things I wanted to work on.. meaning I didn't know where to start! So, instead of doing any of them, I decided to do a little exercise that I remember reading about somewhere, maybe on someone's blog.. ? Anyway, I think you can probably guess the gist of it.. Draw a bunch of random blobs (even better if you get someone else to draw them for you) and proceed to attempt to turn them into faces. It is a super fun and organic way to loosen up and think outside the box.. I try not to dwell on any one blob for too long, and if i find that I am getting finicky, ie. constantly erasing bits of a face and trying to get it right, then I will usually delete the whole face and start again. I find that when I work this way, the shapes dictate the face for me, meaning the character practically draws itself! Super fun stuff......

Just doodled this guy up between renders at work. Reference was an old photo booth photo that I stumbled across online... I just loved his face!

Also.. I just noticed that I signed it "08".. Looks like I'm not accustomed to the new year yet...
