February Colours of the Month

This one wasn’t planned at all.  I knew I was going to use the palette eventually, and it was sat on my phone waiting to be used.

But the actual decision to use it was kind of spontaneous.

I had been doing some random doodles to use up the last pages in a falling apart sketchbook, and I was really enamoured with this little guy.

I decided to draw a bigger, proper version of him, and I was drawing I realised that this would be a good oppportunity to use the palette.  Unfortunately the first way of using them that I had in mind didn’t quite work out right.

Maybe it’s the execution, but he looks very very wrong.

So I moved on and redid him.  This time I gave him a different facial expression, some friends, and a location.

I’m much happier with this piece.  I love the little curled up versions.
