Reviving old sketches
After moving house I uncovered so many sketchbooks, and wonderful unfinished sketchbooks. I always come back to art eventually, even if its sometimes years later, and its wonderful to find hidden gems that can be improved with new experiences in line work, painting or proportion. I found a few character designs that had been speed sketched about a year ago and I'm so glad I came back to them. They were part of a conceived tribe of people that were half cat/tiger, which I had seen in a dream. The central leopard, Archer, was rescued by the tigers and struggles to fit in, being much smaller than them (and missing an arm!) but he soon finds his way. It was an exploration of the various characters in the tribe and the subtle differences that differentiate them.
