Day 47

I've been thinking a lot lately about some of the old cartoons that I watched as a kid. One thing that I always thought was funny was the way a giant skinny lump would immediately form on someone's (or something's) head after getting whacked with a hammer, an anvil, or any number of other heavy objects! And so, I thought it would be fun to make something with that theme.

While I love the final product of animated images, I really am drawn to the process of how they're made as well. (Punk kind of intended...) I really enjoy seeing the more spontaneous, lighter sketchy lines that are covered by thicker darker lines in the preliminary drawings. I tried to emulate that effect with this portrait by using very little eraser.

  1. ha! There's something about you and birds (ravens, crows, etc.), isn't there? Kind of an Edgar Allen Poe thing, I believe...
