So as you know, I am creating an army. We all need one just in case. This is the process! (Click on the images for a larger view)
Starting the baby sketch! Then, a larger adequately sized rough sketch before the real drawing on good paper. The first stages are just fuzzy gray fuzzies of charcoal.
Values slowly set and defined... but, hm... how to put glasses on this animal? The sketches I drew looked fine- but anything goes in the cartoon world. When I venture towards a more realistic rendering, the actual truth is that the handles of human glasses would not be long enough to reach the ears of the anteater. Figuring it out...
Finally got glasses to fit on it's head!!! Crop, and done.
