I made these batch of sketches last year and only got around to completing them. I wanted to make a twist on the three little pigs tale, making the big bad wolf really adorable and the pigs disgustingly gross. I love making them as they are, drawing in their warts and wrinkles.
This little guy I drew a while back after watching "Brother Bear" on tv. You know how some cartoons always make you cry? Well, this is how I felt after that part where the main character chooses to stay with the little bear Koda because he has no big brother to watch over him. That was sad!
The eyes I got inspiration from Suren Manveylan's photography site which has awesome close-ups of various animal peepers. I'm quite happy with how the colors turned out on this piece. I wanted it to have that inner-glow look.
