Doodle 061 - Cat, Mushu and Twilight Sparkle again

Ah, back home again, I love going away, but I always miss my own bed and pillows the most. I had an awesome weekend, visited my happy place (The Magic Kingdom), and the best part was meeting up with good friends.

I am a loner and rather awkward, so, sometimes I forget how very nice it is to be among friends and just talk, have fun and catch up.

Another good thing about being home, is that I get to draw at my desk with decent light again hehehe, so today after eating dinner and resting for a bit I went on a bit of a drawing rampage.

First I did a quick warm-up doodle of my cat, Garfield, he loves Andrei over every other thing in the world, so when he left to pick up some Chinese for dinner he just decided to guard the door until he returned. He really misses him when we go on a trip, even if it is only the weekend:

Waiting - Blue and mechanical pencil om plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 3 mins.
After dinner I started trying to figure out how to draw Mushu from Mulan, after some adjustments using the blue pencil I figured it out and came up with these:

Mushu, front and profile views from model sheet reference - Blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 15 and 7 mins.
After I got the basics down I tried to do one of his expressions:

Mushu from model sheet reference - Blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 5 mins.
Mushu was a lot of fun to draw, I should try a full body drawing next time.

After Mushu I drew Twilight Sparkle again... because I was still bothered by the fact that I forgot her horn last Friday:

"She forgot my unicorn horn?!" - Blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine Notebook. Aprox 10 mins.
Hehehe she is shocked, and rightfully so, sorry Twilight!

So, that's it for this month, October is here, yay!!! I am so happy that Halloween is so close. I am also very proud of myself for not skipping a single day so far, even when I was on the road for quite a bit. I have to credit the extra push to stay at it to all of you, whenever I feel like just turning in for the day I remember you guys are here and that keeps me honest lol.

2 months down, 10 to go!

Love the sly expression you gave Mushu.
I am also impressed you've managed to sketch & post daily. That's not easy!

Poor Twilight, at least she has her unicorn horn back now :)

And your kitty silhouette...thats like every cat waiting. Was his tail twitching when you drew him? Mine get twitchy tails when they are forced to wait!
