Ralph the Sheep Noodle Wolf.
While I was drawing Ralph, a lot of people tried to guess what he was throughout the day. "A badger?" "...a mongoose?" "A bat!". Ralph wasn't too happy about that.

A test in using Adobe Illustrator to digitally ink and color. I gotta admit, it really cuts the time in half...the only problem for me right now is that I'm so unfamiliar with the program that there were still a lot of loose ends for me to clean up in photoshop that I shouldn't of had to. Also, I feel that, as smooth as the inking in Illustrator can be, it loses a lot of expression in the process. I much prefer the sketch to this.
So here's a short-term goal for myself once things settle down: become savvy in Illustrator and use that in combination with photoshop to make cool things later on. Maybe this winter break I will actually make a comic or something, using photoshop to paint backgrounds and clean up/add effects, and illustrator to ink and color the characters and do word bubbles and text!
sounds pretty cool, but we'll see.
and a preview of Mitsy, the Kitty Noodle Bunny. I did 3 other poses, too, but they weren't much up to par (this one really isn't, either, but I thought it was still kind of cute).

Fiddle, the Hummingbird Noodle Sugar Glider eating dirt while wearing a monocle, and Toby, the Puppy Noodle Lion
More Fiddle-- she's an interesting lil' cutie pie and immensely fun to draw because she is so hyper, and so all her poses require a lot of energy. Also, when she is feeling any strong kind of "energetic" emotion like a sudden burst of joy, paranoia, or anger- her hat begins to flap its wings.
More Toby. He's one of the main characters, and obviously less energetic than Fiddle. Toby is thoughtful, kind, sensitive, and loyal

Halloween + Gender Bender Ball at scad = interesting times. (Don't worry, I will not be attending the GB again this year, although it was fun :) )
