I think I have been pretty active on the sketching forum here on Core77. But I've begun to realize all I have been doing is sketching random things, sketches with no real purpose. I've found myself drawing the same things over and over again. So starting today, I decided to start drawing with clear objectives. As always, I am open to all feedback, tips and even your own objectives for me to accomplish. I will be drawing anything and everything, not just cars and people as I have mostly done to this point.

From a conversation with a friend earlier today:
Him: "If you are drawing for fun, then it should be a fun character."
Me: But what kind of character is fun?
Him: A character with many personalities?

Objective #1 / Nov. 12, 2012
Design a fun character.

Wow dude this is perfect! Spaceships is a good one because one can never draw too many spaceships. I'm not sure I've seen a spaceship drawing from you yet but for sure you can do it.

Thanks Crit71, that's a great suggestion! I'll tackle that as my next objective after I do a few more fun characters.

"Squirting Flower Shower Head"

This is another sketch in the fun character objective, except rather than drawing a person, I
personified a shower head by giving it a red clown nose and decorating it with petals. My goal
here was to give a sterile shower head some character and communicate a fun user experience
where users would have to pinch the red nose for water.

Great idea on sketching new things (I should follow this!). Look forward to seeing what you show ... and I second the spaceship idea ;)

@Robbie_roy.
Thanks for checking this out. Sorry Robbie and Crit! I got inspired to do some hybrid characters today. I promise to do spacecrafts for Objective #3! I'm excited to see what type of hybrids I can come up with. The most obvious is humans and animals but I am gonna try to cleverly combine the two and also do some odd combinations!

Objective #2 / Nov.14, 2012
Design a hybrid character.

"Hybrid Human - Cat Girl"

I wanted to point out the two different hairstyle look. Most cats have two different colors of hair
and stripes. I tried to imply this split-personality into my character without the use of color.

"Hybrid Human - The Cardinal"

The beard represents the black signature of a red cardinal. The mohawk hair is kept intact and
makes the character more intimidating. The feathers of a bird are hinted in the jacket.

I like them! Seen a cardinal before but I think yours has more human parentage ;)
