Illustration Friday: Muddy

I was sick for a good portion of last week, and I'm still trying to get back to my normal operating schedule. Still have a stupid cough. It's been wet and rainy and cold here, but the perk of that is the mountains are starting to look so green and beautiful. I really enjoy my drives to and from work right now.

I think that the guy looks a little weird, but he looks different then the faces I normally draw. I keep trying to expand my range of expressions and features. His face was the result of a drawing session with some friends. We did 2-minute drawings and one set of them were blind/continuous line drawings where we couldn't look at the paper. We really enjoyed the results, which were often funny and Picasso-like. This one was my favorite:

There is a certain quality to the scribble that I lost in the top drawing, but it was still fun working with an image I don't usually draw.

I like doing those and the ones where you scribble without looking and then make something out of it. I like it, he turned into an interesting character.

He looks great and funny as well.
I´ve also experienced with drawing without looking - it´s a lot of fun!

This little guy is so cute and he shows how bad you feel thanks for sharing.

I love the style.

I love how your character came out! It's great to do those bind contour drawings, such a good exercise - one I need to do more myself. Hope you're feeling better soon!
