Project: Ben 10...Wildmutt final

K...here's the final Wildmutt. I worked a little more detail into this one. I didn't quite feel I put enough into Heatblast. Next up is Diamondhead.

Project: Ben10...Wildmutt sketch

One thing I forgot to mention is that I am also not allowed to use outlines. Once again...drawing with the pen tool...not fun. Why do I do this to myself?!

Project: Ben 10...Heatblast Sketch

So throw that whole "taking one hour" concept out the door!! I should have known better than that. Also, sketching in Illustrator with the pen tool is awful!! I miss paper...:(

Anyway, first up is Heatblast. Check out my sketch below...

Project: Ben 10...

Holy crud!! Long time since I posted.

I didn't win the contest from the post below...s'okay, I really like my design.

Anyway, I wanted to give myself a fun new project. Something that would be challenging but that I wouldn't have to think too hard about. So here's the deal:

There's this show on Cartoon Network called Ben 10. I like it. Not so much for the story or because I think it's well animated, I just like it for the concept and the fun monsters. The basic plot of the show is this little kid, Ben Teneson, finds this alien watch thingy that can transform him into 10 different creatures.

The project I'm giving myself is simple enough...draw the 10 creatures, but since I can't resist a challenge, I've given myself a couple tricky guidelines. First and most tricky is that I'm restricting myself to doing the entire piece in Adobe Illustrator. That means sketching too. Second and less tricky is that it all has to fit in a square format. Lastly, and I doubt I'll be able to do it, I am gonna try to get each illustration done in an hour.

I'll post my progress as I go. Wish me luck.
