Since we haven't had an interactive Friday for a while I thought I would do something relatively easy (I say that now, just watch as it gets complicated lol).
The theme for this weekend will be animals... and masks. I am trying to exercise shape variation and letting myself take more chances with my drawings, sometimes I get restricted by trying to make everything as proportionate or at least proportionate to reality as I can, this really makes me miss a lot of design opportunities that could create very fun and cool characters.
So, I will draw as many masks as I can, and there is a fun twist, once I do all the masks and variations I can I will pick the masks I like best and make 10 artist trading cards to giveaway on the days counting down to Christmas.
To denmonstrate what I am trying to do, here is a fast exercise I did today while thinking of a jaguar:
