The Alex Keaton/Michael Keaton connundrum.

Some time last year, I started doing Watercolor Warm Up paintings as I got ready to work for the day, and then posting them on Watercolor Wednesdays. I got the original idea from David Peterson, and it’s such a great way to start the day, experiment, and create new content.

When April was born, she was totally bald. In fact, she didn't really have much hair until well after she was one. Ophelia on the other hand was born with a full head of hair. I did this illustration initially for the About section of this website, and she looks very different from the character I'm using in the comic right now...I think I'm going to go ahead and start drawing her more like this.

A common element in a lot of character drawings are rubber duckies. They might be on a shirt, as a pattern on wall paper or decals on the pool, or a toy. I don't know exactly why, I think I just like the iconic look of them, and they're fun to draw. :) This illustration is available in the online shop HERE.

There was a time when we watched Toy Story every day. The movie was one of the first to truly capture April's imagination. That's the power of excellent character design and great story telling. As time went on, she got all the toys. Woody and Jessie were constant companions. This illustration is available in the online shop HERE.
You can check out an album of all the Watercolor Wednesdays over on our Facebook page. Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with us!
