Quick spot illustration

This little guy was originally a design for a contest at my gym. Design your own smoothie. Now, Im no smoothie expert... but there were NFL tickets as a prize... I figured, I whip up a character and throw a few ingredients together and call it "Move Over, Hang-Over!"... who wouldn't want that!? The only thing I didn't figure was the due date. It was due the following day that I saw it. Oh well. I wanted to finish it anyway, so here it is!

Was able to do this in under 2 hrs!

Rough Character Sketches

(above is the proposed finished color of the Stink Bug and his snail)

These beauties are preliminary sketches for a book I am working on. They'll be pushed and pulled a bit and will definitely be subject to the publisher's revisions/additions. I also want to simplify all of them. It's always tougher for me to start simple. I have to pare a drawing down through a series of eventual drawings..
