Rosie and Mr. Bluey

So I've spent the last few days planning out my story. I have divided the story into twelve scenes that will happen over thirty two pages. This is the opening scene that I call home.

The first two pages are a double page full bleed spread that serves to introduce the two main characters and their relationship. The story is about Rosie and Mr. Bluey, dog and owner. And Mr. Bluey takes care of Rosie.

The next two pages are showing that going for a walk is Rosie's idea, Mr. Bluey would probably prefer to stay in his chair but Rosie wins out.

Personal Project

I've given myself four months to create a wordless picture book.

I will make some printed copies of the book as well as put it in PDF that I will display on my blog. I will post a couple of updates each month as the project progresses.

The book is called Rosie and Mr. Bluey go for a  Walk . It is about a happy little dog named Rosie and her owner Mr. Bluey.

To Rosie, life is an exciting adventure, full of fun. Mr. Bluey on the other hand just wishes life would be a bit more uneventful. Why can't he just have a nice, quiet walk without all of the obstacles and interruptions that always cross his path?

Facial Expressions

I joined the gesture drawing group again. We did some facial expression sketches. These are drawn from screen shots of an Indiana Jones movie (I'm not sure which one).
Bobby P did a great job of setting up and hosting  the drawing group again. Thanks Bobby.

Practice Sketches

These are some quick practice sketches I did with a gesture drawing group. I could do these same type of gesture drawings by myself, and I do sometimes but it's just more fun doing it with other artists who are there to improve their skills.

Kid Characters Running

Here is another rough sketch of my kid characters. This time of them running. It was fun trying to figure out how each of them would run. I think I'll bring this sketch into photoshop and paint and refine these characters.

Kid Character Sketches

Here are a few simple sketches of kid characters. I'm trying to get a variety of shapes and personalities.
