Here are some more animal characters dudes. Using Bristol paper, with 0.7 orange color Eno mechanical pencil with a kneaded eraser for underdrawing, and then a regular HB pencil for final lines. The kneaded eraser works like opacity in photoshop :D
I've learned to become more patient with my designs since when I started drawing. I used to think what would define me as a good designer was how easy it would be. It seems to be the other way around, I've never found design as difficult as I do now. There are so many factors to consider. Color composition, shape design, straight vs curve, readable silhouette, weight, spacing of parts, anatomy, functionality, uniqueness, technical aspects of final format, story, mood, attitude, appeal etc. Arriving at a drawing I like is damn frustrating, and takes many attempts, and still, when I look back at the final result in retrospect, there's always something that could be done better. I think one of the hardest things is to accept that I'll probably fail, but still dive into each drawing with passion and the hope that it will turn out alright. If I don't invest, the drawing is doomed from the start. Well, here are a few attempts.
