Oddball Choir




Just a bit of fun! This one goes out to Perezvila - a bit less mean eh? I always found it amazing how much difference tiny changes in the placements of features on a character can affect their persona and personality. I guess I was exploring that here.


Also, I just finished reading Pascal Blanchets' "White Rapids" - its a quick read, but beautifully illustrated in his  strong and art deco-ish style. Very cool! Check it out...



Until next time, 


Ken :D

Oh my! Showing a rabbit to an audience of rabbits! Some are amused...others not so much hehehe!

Love the expressions! Hmm I called them rabbits, not so sure if they really are truly rabbits *thinks*

Thanks for the title! I will definitely check it out ^_^!

Ciao!

This is (the beginnings of) a user scenario:

Tartan or no tartan, what do you think?

I decided to take photographs and trace them in Illustrator because I can't draw to save myself:

Its amazing how tweaking the features can create such an array of characters. Ace work.
