The Watcher

I have toyed with the idea of layering blocks for a while and this is was the results. Sometimes I get caught up in wanting to keep the body proportionate and that kind of keeps me inside the box. Staying within the box is an area you are familiar and comfortable with. It's kind of like a safety zone and after a while it becomes routine that eventually leads to boredom!


So, to combat that feeling I go get inspired by other artists work that I really like and start pushing myself outside the box. I constantly struggle with that darn box!!!!!

Oh those eyes!!! The Watcher is a good name for that one. Great design, I think you are pushing yourself a bit more all the time and I enjoy watching the progression.

I agree that you have grown a great deal over the past few years as an artist. You are finding your own way. It is good to draw inspiration from other artists but, don't loose yourself in their way.
