So the watercolors and color pencils were making me feel unskilled. Sure, I know I AM unskilled, but I'd rather not FEEL unskilled. Pen doodles are more familiar, as that is my medium when on hold with the cable company. Plus, I actually have a bid on SKULL BOUQUET (*gasp* indeed!), so that's the direction I'm going to go for a while. Thanks, bidder!
PEACE DUDE didn't start out so... pacific. I was trying to draw an ANGRY DUDE, with a raised clenched fist. But the fist looked backward. Probably, as I figured out with my Sherlock-esque skills of mystery solving, because it was. So I added a couple of fingers and voila! ANGRY DUDE was pacified. If only life were that easy...
Anyway, I really like his hat.
