It's MISTER BLOUX to you!
Here's some different dirty laundry for a change. Meet Bloux (bloo), he's our family fish (beta - if you wanna get technical). I found him munching on something today cause he still had a piece sticking out of his mouth...don't know what he's munching on...I don't think I wanna know. I thought I'd sketch this guy for a nice change of pace...I'll be honest, animals are NOT my strength. I can draw human/anthropomorphic characters, but animals can be a bit of a challenge to me sometimes = which means (wait for it).... I NEED to draw/observe MORE ANIMALS! That's right folks! Everybody needs to work on their craft in someway REGULARLY! The best way to be a well rounded artist/animator is to eat lots of snacks late at night before you get to bed! J/K! Get it? "well rounded" Tee Hee! (I know that was stupid) Moving on... Draw things/places/people that you haven't drawn before. And DON'T just draw watch you see...take some time to REALLY OBSERVE your subject and its personality! Even places have a personality or mood...try to observe that and infuse that into your drawing! Long live pencil and paper!
