Here’s a drawing I just completed, and wanted to throw it up onto the blog. This started as part of a drawing contest for Dare2Draw, which is a monthly 15-30 min drawing challenge based on an assigned topic. This month was Beauty and the Beast, and I decided to go with a riff on King Kong. Unfortunately after 30 minutes my page was filled mostly with a scribbley under drawing. So I decided to take it home and finish it up with a brush.
I drew this up for my ultimate frisbee team, the Hungry Hippos back in Boston. This is going to be our new team frisbee.
We went through a couple of different versions, and below you can see the initial design proposals. I really liked the first one, with the hippo peering over the surface of the water, but everyone else responded more to the third design.
