Chinchilla Eating a Strawberry

Roxy wants Cao Cao's strawberry.

 

Day 4 Roxy Illustration Challenge

The Roxy illustration challenge continues! One of my favorite poses, a combo of "What did I do?" + "Talk to the Butt." #illustration


Here's the video of my process...

And once again, here's my dainty princess. Clearly unimpressed with my sophomoric attempt to familiarize myself with a new medium.


Roxy Illustration Challenge

I started off calling this "The Roxy Challenge."  My goal was to loosen up each day with a quick sketch of my bulldog, Roxy. She's funny, she's flatulent, and she sleeps 20 hours a day (mostly under my drafting table)--the perfect model for a children's book illustrator!

However, Roxy wanted no part of that modeling nonsense. She scratched. She fidgeted. She licked her toes. And she insisted on critiquing my work, nosing through all of my sketchbooks before finally resting her chin on my iPad.

Day 1



Day 2

Clearly, she's unimpressed with my work.







Roxy + GoPro = Fail


Taking my "studio assistant" Roxy for a walk, I thought it would be great to mount a GoPro to capture Kailua Beach from a bulldog's perspective...if anything, as inspiration for a new children's book character.
