SHAKESPEARE



Here's a drawing of a character, with no influences what so ever. Tee hee hee!
This was started at least a month ago, more I should think. I did the construction without too much thought of the final character-just to get a form. Practice really. I saw that the proportions reminded me of Dexter from Dexter's Lab, which got me thinking of the Yoda character by Genndy Tartakovsky. Which I was musing on it's striking relationship to the character design of Dexter. In fact when I first saw it, to me it looked like Dexter in a Halloween costume of Yoda. All this went on as I continued drawing. Still with no set purpose. George Liquor [created by Cartoonist John kricfalusi, as you all know ]was on my mind too, if I remember correctly. So then I had a head scribbled. And I wanted to practice some painting. So instead of my usual deleting, I just used this as a base. Got some texture going on in there. Most of which you can't see :O)
The head was almost done, so I saved it. And left it for months. Recently I came back to it and did an even more rough sketch for a possible body. This time I knew I wanted this Hamlet pose. Left that for a few more days. Kept coming back to it, progressing slowly. Mainly because I forgot the technique\colours I had used for the head, to match with the hands. I knew I wanted him in a hoddie, so I did that and turned it into a tracksuit top. Shakespeare in the park. then the Text was put in.
It's obviously NOT Yoda, as Yoda has three fingers, whereas, plainly you can see, this little guy has four and a thumb. :OD I might show you the seedy underbelly of the texturing.
