This is a character I recently animated. I hope to have that piece of animation up somewhere soon. This is a fun character to draw. It was inspired by a drawing Tim Burton did for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, one of my favorite movies by one of my favorite directors.
This is a caricature of my cousin. I have only started learning how to do caricatures, and as far as anyone else is concerned, I am still learning. In the last few months, I have been fascinated by the artwork of Gerald Scarfe, which might have contributed to my learning.
I love watching old music videos. I think I had the video for Depeche Mode's "Enjoy The Silence" on my mind when I drew this.
A friend taught me a drawing technique that has helped out in my designing characters for animation. Simply making a line or a dash spontaneously, and then developing something from that. This started as one of those images. Of course here, I must have had Gerald Scarfe's drawings on my mind.
