#DailyDrawing #Blobs (12 to 18*)

Here are some more of my Daily Drawing Blobs. These drawings are such a great challenge for me, to take a silhouette of watercolor paint (aka the ‘Blob’) and find the hidden person or creature inside of it.

#12 – I was really happy how dynamic this fantasy character came out.

#13 – Bunny Asterix

#14 This one reminds me of a villain from an 1980′s action figure line, like Masters of the Universe.

#15 This bird-like character has a 1960′s Manga look to it, which is cool. Note: I rotate the Blob around till I see something in the shape, this time with the book upside down.

#16 I love how this Owl creature came out!

#17 Big handed guy.

#18 These drawings were done while teaching and not in my sketchbook, so they are all under the same number.

#18.1 Samurai Rabbit

#18.2 Dolphin-person-thing.
