Delving into the mind of one of those weird artist people

Pigs, Cows and Roosters, oh my! (part 1)

Back to the doodling board!

Been doing a bunch of animatics (like these) and some hand-drawn stuff (like this) lately

so there hasn’t been too much doodling going on…

But I’m a-changing that!

Some girlie keeps telling me I need to design some roosters and cows to go with my pigs…because that’s what people collect!

Not that I’m selling out (I haven’t started taking orders yet- nyuk nyuk!) but it doesn’t hurt to do your market research.

So I’m dusting off the piggies.

I always draw the piggies the same way- like this:

Kind of a quarter circle with legs, basically.

Well, I’m working on branching them out a bit!

As you can see, not all the poses work as well as others. Bending sleepy pig with the x on him… nope!

Leaping pig and smiley pig and surprised pig- aw heck yeah! I’m debating the whole ‘colored hoofs’ thing.

Might be too Porky Pig for me… I like the stretchy legs and the nose- I never really did nostrils before on the pigs. I

find it helps to make them two different sizes and a bit asymmetrical. It’s just me, I guess.

I also never drew them with their mouths open. Weird, I know but the design doesn’t work the same way like that. So I had

to work out a way to have them open their mouths.

Okay, here’s one more…

I think this one was inspired by my dog. Do you think pigs sit in their mud chawin’ on an ear of corn like

a dog with a bone? Looks good to me.

That and I wanted to draw a piggy nursing a buncha piglets- a classic image, I think. Which made me realize-

you know I’ve never drawn these pigs from the back either. Huh.

So I did a few of those. Not bad, I think. Kinda cute, even.

Next time, cows and roosters and stuff! Yeah!
