Bigfoots? Bigfeet?

For the past while I've been tasked with drawing a sasquatch for a Texas Cryptids compendium-comic.  While planning the creature design I decided to have fun with it and try out a variety of styles, sorta hoping that the spitballing-process would unlock some sort of attitude or features that I might not have thought of otherwise.  I feel like the design still has a few things yet to be resolved before it's a final product, but it is at least pretty unique as sasquatches go -- And some of the cartoonier designs, while not appropriate for the task, are kinda going somewhere.

I'd still like to have more control over my technique.  As a line-artist in a service studio I'm supposed to pride myself on versatility -- And all the drawings, however different they are, still came from the same school of thought.  A real challenge of artistic range would be to identify your hallmarks and learn to break them. The question for me is, where do you start?

Dr. Sketchy's ATX -- Faeries And Demons!

Howdy all,

So, this is an experiment day.  I'm typing this up at 9 PM Monday night -- But thanks to my use of the Blogger Scheduling System it should post at 9:30 AM Tuesday morning (Pacific), just in time to brighten your morning!  The miracles of technology!

Anyways.  Dr. Sketchy's.  As always, a great time had!  Thank you to the organizers, to the models Ruby Lamb of the Jigglewatts Burlesque troupe and Sarah Sparkle of Brass Ovaries, and to the Spiderhouse Ballroom who until yesterday I didn't realize had resumed hosting live-art events.  Good Times!

Hope you enjoy the sketches!  By the way, if you notice any black spots dotting the paper, that was glitter (which was ALL OVER THE PLACE by the end of this session, and which it turns out that my printer/scanner doesn't know what to do with).
