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.
