This drawing of a surfer dude cartoon character was sketched for a current project. He came out pretty cool and I thought I would share as the final will most likely be tweaked in response to client input. The other characters in the series are leaning towards a different body/head ratio as well, so he’ll have to be adjusted. Sometimes what works for one character doesn’t work well across multiple characters.
One thing that will definitely change will be the “hang loose” hand gesture, it looks too much like “call me”. This was one of those drawings where the artwork just seemed to flow out of the pencil. The hands came out especially nice without much reworking (if any, I can’t recall now).
