To that end, these drawings are how I spent my evening. The first is an image that explores personality (grace and confidence) in a static image, and the second is basically supposed to be a drawing of myself if I were a cartoon rabbit. The first image is part of a larger project I hope to use in the far future, and the second is just something I wanted to do for fun. You may begin to grasp the connection between them. I like how they both turned out. I didn't leave myself enough space in the first image, and I'm sure her form isn't even close to being right or whatever. But I think she's pretty, and that's the point. I've drawn a few cartoon robots in my day and that came in handy. The second image turned out to sort of be a combination of the two main characters in Pixar's "Boundin'," which is kind of appropriate actually. "Boundin'" also might be my favorite Pixar short. I know this drawing is not as adorable as the duckling, but it's fun. All I know is, I prayed to God for help before I started drawing, and these pictures are what I drew. God's will be done. I will trust in You all the days of my life. I love You. Amen.

Obviously this image was experimenting with motion. It's a little odd, but I actually tried not to use motion lines (my normal technique) and just try to convey the motions of the figures though shape.
I think I will give a little more backstory to this picture. I don't know how obvious it is, but the two humanoid figures were actually arguing by the elevators before they both noticed something menacing sneak around the corner. This moment comes at the same time the young woman's elevator arrives and speaks "going down." As you might imagine, these words have a bit more meaning in the context of what they were arguing about and what they just saw, but I won't say exactly what.
So as you may have guessed, this image is focused on finding all the shapes of the scene, not just the characters. It's also about using those shapes to create a certain focus and effect.
