I felt like trying to draw something the way Chris Sanders does. If you remember sometime back I got a bit philosophical about his style. I'm sure my analysis was totally inadequate- how can you sum up any artist, much less one as unique as Mr. Sanders, in a blog post? He does a lot of animal characters and two things I always notice about them, even in the rough sketches, are the character's skin, and it's skull. Isn't that strange? The small far apart eyes that he gives them accentuates the cheekbones, as well as the empty space that smaller eyes leave on the face (so many cartoon characters have such large eyes)- extra room for foreheads, nose bridges etc... Check out this lion, and this dragon or even better, this whole mess of creatures. Chris also always puts interesting little wrinkles and folds in the skin also, at least on the face. Anyway, this wildebeest-thing, is a vain attempt, not only to draw like Chris, but also to push beyond my own conventions.
