For a project, I have to develop a character out of a kid playing a guitar. Here you can see what I came up with. From Left to Right I go from my personal style (the 2009 standard which is a hybridization of my older anime style, and my 2007 western style) The middle has its realism toned down a bit, and the right one if full cartoon-esque.
The bottom two are sort of a mix between the Middle and Right designs - though I like them all for different reasons.
Here are some designs for some crazy animals. I've seen them all before in other works - nothing too new here. But still fun to draw.
