Dressed to impress

Second speed dater...
Montgomery, you old dog!
I'm pretty sure that isn't even his real name.
My main goal with these was to try and design regular, pedestrian looking characters for some practice. This resulted in a few posts that I think are kinda boring, but, ah well, it's a bit of versatility I s'pose. I know a few months down I'm gonna hate these, ha!

Design Challenge

Me and the crazily talented Nadya Mira are gonna try out some set design tasks each week to get our juices rolling. This week she suggested the theme speed dating and this is the first piece I drew this evening. I'm not sure how much of it actually looks like speed dating, but it was pretty fun to draw, especially with a Pekingese in the mix. I'm gonna try and get some more interesting speed daters drawn for the next few, but right now I'm trying to work on building draftsmanship in my design, and this kind of couple helped me a ton.

I'm not sure if I made it obvious enough that the guy is Scottish... ;p

More Medusas

Armed with the hand and head of the man she could have loved... Time can mend a broken heart, but how do you mend a broken head?

Sappy shit!

Here are some more of the aforementioned 'Modern Medusa' designs. Basically I'm still brain storming for one of these uni project book ideas and I also wanted to get some regular looking girls churned out since I don't think I've ever really designed one. I mainly wanted it to be about her and her hair, so for the most part, she's pretty plain. Anyways....
