Talking Mr. Chubby Cheeks (WIP)

Well....It's an 8X10 Ampersand....I've used a needle, an 11(I think) x-acto blade, a large bladed scaple and some emery cloth type sandpaper. I've spent about 6 hours on it so far.
And most importantly....my youngest daughter picked it out and gave it the title
Gotta get back to workin on it.....seems for some reason I just can't stop . Might have something to do with the other 8X10, the 9X12 and the 11X14 I have sitting on the desk.

As usual C&C welcome
Say hi to "Mr. Chubby Cheeks"

Re: Mr. Chubby Cheeks (WIP)

Thanks Rod The show has me pumped up and ready to go!
If I have enough time I just may have to add some color......
Just don't tell Harold......I don't want him to think I'm getting addicted to color. I did however get some Ampersand inks the other day.........

Re: Mr. Chubby Cheeks (WIP)

I really like this. It is so cute, and looks amazing so far! I'm curious as to what your going to have on the (our right) side of the board to balance everything out? Keep it up!

I see why you left the black cheek, to mix your new style with your old

Re: Mr. Chubby Cheeks (WIP)

Allan, you've really picked it up a notch, buddy. This is looking excellent. Another one of my favorite animals. Tell little bit she has good taste artwork. Oh yeah, let's see you put those inks to use. You've got a knack for color.

Re: Mr. Chubby Cheeks (WIP)

Patrick's version looks pretty darn good...probably sell quicker too
Alot of comments! Thanks everyone!
Here's an update.....Mr. Void's cheecks aren't blue...but I think I'm done with the little critter......NOW on to the background. Susan...I have no Idea what I'm gonna do to the right side yet......
Guess I better get back to work.
I think I spent another 8 hours on it. ( a total of 14 so far ...for me that's quick!)
I'm sure I'll fiddle with the little muncher as I continue
Oh...almost forgot......this is all scratch...no ink washes
And yes....my little one just well maybe an artist in the making

Absolutely adorable!!

I can't wait to see what you do with the background though... . I've just been avoiding backgrounds so far... I guess that can't last forever!
