Mr. Moore and I are working on a children’s book, codename Sundrop Acres. I can’t remember if I mentioned it here or not, but the general gist of it involves a ridiculous amount of cute and requires that I be able to draw a character multiple times.
Having never really managed to draw the same character multiple times while maintaining a uniform character design … this has been an interesting project for me.
One of the main characters is a dragon. I’m still finalizing the design, but I thought you might enjoy a sneak peek at my sketchbook.
Original dragon concept. His body style has changed from this, but I still love it.
Somewhere in my sketches, this angry fellow developed. Mr. Moore promptly fell in love with him. He won’t do for the primary character, but he might make an appearance if we do further books. The text that you probably can’t read came from Mr. Moore and says “Do you have any idea how much it pisses me off to not have any fists?!”
Working on body designs. We’re thinking he’ll lose his arms, but I haven’t quite settled on one design yet.
Working on the design of the head.
