Blue Monkey by rebel-penguin Blue Monkey by rebel-penguin
Sketch number 1 in attempt to doodle every day, something that has needed to happen for a long time and my lovely girlfriend has inspired me to finally take serious. I've created a blog so i'll be posting there every day if all goes as it should but i'll be sure to post the stuff i'm half way happy with here. Decided to start it all off with a simple piece inspired by the Father of Flash Illustration, or that's how i see him at least, Pascal Campion. Wish me luck and enjoy :D

My Blog if you care to keep tabs on my progress: [link]

I like this. I would suggest you watch My Neighbor Totoro. It's a cute little movie, and this sort of makes me think of it. Also, [link] is another thing that this reminds me of.

Good job on this, though. I like the squiggles around the edges.

I still love it the shapes and colors really draw the viewer in, and in a playful way. I too hate to post unfinished sketches, cause my sketches are terrible :)lol

Dispite your lack of personal time, it sounds like a great gig and it can probably only lead to bigger and better things right, take it easy :D
