Doodling and designing characters and creatures is a fun hobby/past time for me; I love to lose myself in creating a character’s backstory, personality and invent who they are through the way they look. I’ve neglected my drawing skills over they years as I’ve been more focused on digital art – I’ve taken for granted the ease and simplicity of just drawing a character, but I’ve forgotten how difficult it can be to get it ‘just right’.
I have recently acquired a sketch book where I design my Computing programs, Websites and occasionally doodle the odd character or two. My favourite style of characters to make are robots, the method of forming them from basic primitive blocks is quite a journey as you slowly add more and more detail to bring them to life. Here are a few crude examples of my characters.
