Quick little character, and some links!

Hey everyone! Thanks to Zach for gathering us back together! Let's see if we can finish out this semester with some regular updates. I think instead of throwing out a theme, let's just share sketches, ideas, encouragements, inspirations, and yadda yadda yadda.

This was done as a bit of a joke for Phil Lietz. Tweren't more than a quick sketch, but i tought i'd throw down some colors and post it here.

And here are some links to browse:
http://www.theartcenter.blogspot.com/ ---> honestly, take an hour some day and catch up on the posts here...really really good drawing tips from some great artists in the industry! (the kind of stuff they don't really get around to teaching at RMCAD).
http://characterdesign.blogspot.com/ -----> the art center's sister blog, dedicated to interviewing the industry's top character designers. great insight, great inspiration.
http://floony.blogspot.com/ -----> some of the best work in animation is coming from France (more specifically, the Gobelin animation school). these artists aren't just into cartoons though, they'll definitely inspire us illustrators too! This artist, Floriane Marchix, produces some amazing background designs. fyi, she's 24. let's get our butts in gear!
