Turtle and kitty

Today the topic was Ninja turtle.What you see in this sketch page are some pose variations and the last of the small sketches i wanted to remake it into the final one but unfortunately i didn't get the same attitude and didn't like the expression so i painted the small one.

And a small kitty cat.

Caaaaaars

I do like children book style drawings and animation in general and while other styles attract me as well this feels for now the most natural to pursue

I've decided to follow this type of work instead of depressing myself because i don't have YET enough skill for realistic illustrations.After all i love cute stuff.

These 2 chacarters are made as well for the same goup on facebook and as you can see here and in the other post about this group ,i did tried to focus on a more cartoony style even though each drawing has it's style.

Also after denying a couple of years to create a twitter account...i finally did it and you can follow me here.

Updates

Today i'm going to delight you with some composition sketches inspired by Eytan Zana gumroad.The second one might look very dark for you but it was on purpose,the brightness being between 0-40 in the hsb sliders in photoshop i think.

The third image are some value studies after Robert McGinnis and John White Alexander.

The colored backgrounds are from 2 games i worked on and you can play them here
