Day 10 of 21



Stepped away from people for a bit and decided to see how well I would do just starting out with basic shapes for a head, and let the character evolve based on what I saw as a drew it. Above are the results. The dog I named "Howard," mostly because he looks like one. The dragon has no name... maybe "Buddy," now that I think about it. He looks kinda friendly!

----------------------------

On another note, the wonderfully talented Linda Sylvestri of Sketched Out fame has graciously awarded me the Pico Award. I am honored to be so highly thought of at such a young (blogger) age. Thanks, Linda!

Now I have to pick 5 bloggers to pass the award along to. This may take a while to narrow down. There are so many great blogs and artist out there, I don't yet know where I would begin!

How cute Tom! He, he love the doggie and the company where he works too ;o)

I specially LOVE the dragon! You really have to stick with this one Tom, take it to color. Is great, the perspective, dimension, characters all great! I love him, he looks very sweet.

Why don't you name him Angus? If you don't like that one you can always name him Tom.. ;o)

Great work!!The dragon is my favorite!!
What about colors?
(^v^)

Monica said...

Well, as you know I am partial to all animals (real and imaginary), so I really like your sketches today! :-) Dragons are not easy to capture, but you did a great job, and he does look rather friendly. It would be great to see it in color, do you have a favorite medium?

Tom Barrett said...

Paola: Actually, Howard is quite punctual! :)

Alicia: Yes, I will color him soon. I have been wanting to do some color stuff, but time has not been my friend.

Thanks, Zime!

Monica: Don't really have a favorite... well, I do... I really like watercolor paintings, but for me, I am still experimenting, so I haven't found a medium that I am partial to in my own work.

These are great! I like the 'props' of the dragon's walking stick and the dog's bag!

Tom Barrett said...

Thanks, Jess. I wanted them both doing something, but I was drawing (no pun intended) a blank on what the dragon could be doing, so I gave him a stick to hold. Pretty original, I know! :P

I like that concept you came up with. . . .letting the characters evolve from drawing their heads. Great job! I like the dragon as well!

Paola said...
