Space Guy and Mr. Roboto
An attempt at taking a doodle a little further along the path towards an actual composition. Not quite there yet.
This was also an experiment in abandoning my usual process of sketching, drawing over in felt marker and then erasing the original pencil lines. For this one I kept my sketch very light and minimal and then emphasized the lines that I wanted to keep. There is still a lot of line-noise and garbage but I like the roughness and personality that a pencil line has over the "over-corrected" magic marker lines. The next step in this process is to try out a light box and see how that alters the rules.
Now that I look at this again, I see an unintentional FUTURAMA vibe to the character's face and even a little in the backdrop. Oh well...
