September is for sketching


Just a collection of some of the quick character sketches, a revived drawing and my new profile avatar from recent weeks.  September is for sketching.  It's fantastic to get back into the swing of character design by just drawing the first characters that pop into your head.  I haven't used any reference for these, so I thank my years of life drawing classes and people-watching for being able to coax out a reasonable degree of character movement and posture!

Someone asked me recently what on earth was up with the dude tying his shoelaces - I think we'd all understand: his little sister has just spent all his credit on rubbish in-app purchases, and he really can't deal with doing the washing up right now, Mum. "Ugh, I'm going to the park with Phil!". Cheer up little guy!
