Yo was looking for sumthin to draw this mornin to warm up into an illustration for a book I'm doin, n after a load o looking up sum artists, Colman, comics, imagine fx, gris grimly, blogger, Niki's ( http://nicholakehoe.blogspot.com/ ) blog n stumbled on a post my mate Dan ( http://www.zero-capital.blogspot.com/ ) put up,
These drawings he did r full o energy big twisted lines, some of my favourite drawings that he's dun n for the first time i looked at sumones sketches n thought, if i had to do that in my style how would i do it, wat wud it look like, wud i ruin the other persons sketches? sooooooooooooooo i had a stab at convertin this guy into sumthin I'd draw.
He turned out v different, I was drawin cowboys at the weekend so I def went dwn the cowboy route with him ( instead of the introverted bus driver) n left out the crest on his t shirt, n changed his boots. but kept the elongated neck n head, and I stretched him out a bit more. I did a version o him with sum stubble, (i think cowboys shud have stubble) but keepin in with Dan's style i also did sum fresh faced sketches o him too. also liked how high Dan kept the hat sitting high on his head so i did that too, usually i have the hat covering the eyes n such. My design looks a great deal darker than Dan's happy designs, but I'm pretty happy with the end results. Cheers Dan!
