I started some illustration classes today. We had to choose a stuffed animal and draw it, then build a character off of it. I chose a little seal and ended up making Dapper Dan the Conman! Here he is:

He's a little carnival barker-type dude who runs a travelling sideshow. Well, if you can call it a sideshow. All it really is is a self-sewn Fiji mermaid and hyperbole. His job is to lure people to his bright yellow and purple tent and start talking. While he does, his partner in crime Billiam the Krill (in snazzy tophat and tie,) pickpockets the spectators. After the admission price, Dapper Dan pulls back the curtain to reveal his shoddy masterpiece. If he's ever found out, he has to try and hide himself in snow, for his moustache makes him so top-heavy that he can't move well. In fact, his irl counterpart is top-heavy too.

The first is just a ref sheet in pencil. It sort of has all his facts and expressions and stuff. The second is a watercolour of Dan and Billiam scheming. It's a little messy. I'm comfortable with it, though. Hope you guys enjoyed!
