Character Sketches 01 - Flower Guy

For the last two days I have been working hours on end on either sketching or coloring elaborate scenes. On both of those days, I went to bed on, or after, 2 a.m. Today I thought I would get a good night sleep and keep it simple. I still wanted to produce a new drawing, but I didn't want to have to spend hours working on it until it was finished. I thought I would keep things simple today and do a few REALLY fast and simple and rough character sketches of my flower guy in different situations which wouldn't really be characteristic of him (or her). The drawings didn't take me more than a few minutes to do, and the coloring was even faster. I just slapped on some really fast color on Photoshop and that was it. Anyway, I thought the drawings were pretty fun and thought I would share them with you today. I think I'm enjoying drawing this flower character; although his petals can get pretty complicated when drawing certain actions or perspectives. But part of the challenge of art is getting it just right. Well, Enjoy! - Sergio

Just a thought, What if he were played more sensetively? I'm saying, for the needs of a childrens book, if he were more emotional. He's a flower guy, pretty fragile and sensetive like a real flower. Nightmare guy comes along and tells him what a baby he is, wants to trash his world, dreams, self esteem, etc. Nightmare doesn't need to be so scary in as much as he's a real jerk, and somehow flower guy has to overcome him. Its something kids could definetly relate to in a childrens story. You definetly gave the workings of something good here.

Hey thank for the comment. Actually yeah he is more sensitive in the story. These drawings were just dumb fun drawings I wanted to do which were out of his character. The story really is about what happens to the worlds in dreams once we wake up. The flower character is very sensitive and really dosen't speak throught the story, until the end when he finds courage and his voice to confront the nightmare and save the dreamer.
