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

Back to the doodling board!
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!
