Design Competition: D&AD New Blood Awards: Development: sketchbook

Some early ideas I didn’t use and the genesis of the one I did

Here are some sketchbook pages of me trying to figure out the ins and outs of drawing anthropomorphic characters. Some images are directly referenced from Juanjo Guarnido, artist of Blacksad, others are me trying to internalise what he does. I suspect I’ll be drawing anthropomorphic people for some time to come, since my YouTube channel art is an anthropomorphic mountain lion cowboy called Colt Cougar (best sentence ever). It’s great to do something that will definitely feed into what I do in the future.
