Sketchdump: Sky Herder whatnot by Turtle-Arts Sketchdump: Sky Herder whatnot by Turtle-Arts
Because you guys always ask me for stuff from this project, and I never give it to you. XD So, tonight I was feeling nice and decided to give you guys some sketches from my big old bag of stuff for this project. :thumbsup: Just little sketches mostly, though there's an animal in there that I haven't shown to you guys yet, as well as one of the secondary characters, who is also new for you all! ^^ The man in the upper left is sort of a... eh, "frienemy" to the main characters. But he is fun to draw because EYEBROWS. Haven't named him yet though, and his exact role in the story is still in the process of being written. :I And Mier's there to give you a general sense of scale between the two... because Mier is a shorty (lol, no puberty yet for you, kid. XD) So yeah, enjoy some sketches, since I'm not posting any large or finished images from this project at this time. :icondealwithitplz:

Yes I was drawing at Applebees. I remember I also sat in one of my dad's Wednesday classes and we were critiqing students' art. I remember seeing your Sky Herder concept art for the first time and I remember really liking it.
Then at the BFA show I saw your area with all your art and books and I was like, 'oh my gosh, you're the one with the awesome stuff I saw once!'...yeah..I don't have a good memory, but I do remember the awesome things :D (Big Grin)

Lol, well I'm glad you enjoyed it! And yeah, I think I remember you coming to class before. Teachers bring their kids around from time to time, so I get mixed up on who belongs to who. XD At least your dad didn't make you pose as a model for us, like Abegglan did with his kids. XD

Lol, well a lot of them were partially done images that I finally decided to finish. Or like with this, most of these sketches were done at random times throughout the last couple weeks. ^^;

Seriously Anna, every time I comment on something and you respond I just sort of squeak. I know that has nothing to do with my previous comment, but you're one of my favorite artists and the fact that you always take a minute to write back whenever I ask a question or say something just makes me super happy.

And I'm just happy to be seeing more art. Seriously. I like arts, and these. These are good arts.

I would name him Grumpy McEyebrows but since that name doesn't seem to quite fit into that particular world, how about Grums instead?

Eyebrows are fun. I like the profiles of each, seeing how their face shape changes is interesting.

Thanks. :> And yeah I did the profiles to compare each kid's face shape to make sure they weren't overly similar. :thumbsup:

Crying. Rofl. Love your Sky Herder work though. I really would love to see this as an animated movie. It would be great! You definitely have the talent for it.

Made 'em up myself. :I But with vague hints at different cultures. But more in the "sound" of different words, rather than being based on actual names/words.
