Another one


As my book gets closer to publication and its eventual debut I will continue to leak new images.....Here is an image that intially was just a warm up sketch.... I really enjoy doing cute characters b/c its easy to make something evil,ugly, and cynical, its a bit tougher to design a cute,beautiful, or sexy character. I enjoy the challenge and since we are in an industry that caters towards youth, desiging cute and appealing friendly characters only helps my strength in job application.

I on the other hand have a difficulty with ugly and evil. That is why I must have your book. Who wants cute anyways? Cute can be really boring, unless its cute and also cynical, and a teeny bit evil too(like Porky? and Bugs?). That is not to say I don't like your characters - yep, most of them are cute but not too much. You know what I mean.

Awww, cute pig. I love the face. Nice lines too. I agree that it is always easier to design ugly or sinister characters. I always find myself inadvertently doodling either evil or just plain out ugly characters. well done piglet! Now lets see the big bad wolf!
