Some cafe sketches:
I had a little art brawl with my friend where we sent each other shapes we made in Alchemy and had to turn them into characters. The shark man is my favorite:
And finally, some sketches of a character I was thinking of doing for the eleven second club. It's an old man fish:

My first digital painting with my new intuous5 tablet. I decided to draw a puppy and something interesting happened. I gave him a blue collar because I thought it would best complement his brownish fur. I then gave him spots to take care of empty space on his fur and add interest to his design. Only then did I realize that it looked like a puppy Scooby Doo. Perhaps there was more thought put into his design than I thought.

Here are some character designs for my concept class:
Here are some exploratory sketches I did when I was trying to come up with the designs for the characters:
I wanted to think simple geometric shapes. Here I tried a square as the basic shape for the monkey's head.
I tried getting more complex, trying to see what I could get. Although I like this design, the monkey with the square head stood out more. I wanted my design to be interesting and catch the eye.
I tried drawing the monkey and the dolphin together to see if I could get two designs the juxtapose well. I soon decided it would be best to have the monkey's sharp, geometric shapes contrast with the smooth, flowing shapes of the dolphin.
After a little more exploration, I tried using a triangle as the basic shape for the monkey's head. I found the monkey on the right to be my favorite, but I felt it needed a bit more adjustment.
Finally, I found the design that I liked. A strong triangle takes the from of his head, giving him a strange, but interesting appearance.
