Method to the Madness

I was dogsitting yesterday. I got up early. I sort of had nothing to do, so I thought I’d continue on an After Effects course I’ve been taking at Lynda.com.

Then this one popped up under the “New Courses” section:

monsterdrawingworkshop

 

The Monster Drawing Workshop is a recorded live workshop taugh by¬†Von Glitschka. He teaches, as it is formulated, “The method to the madness”. In other words, how to think when designing your monster.

 

I wasn’t actually planning on participating, I just wanted to watch it through, but I got really inspired from watching everyone draw, so I began doodling down some thumbnails.

Dino the Chubster

As I was dogsitting at someone else’s place, I didn’t have brown card to work with. But the cover of my sketchbook just happened to be just the right fit.

And so it was, that Dino the Chubster came to be.
