Mara and the Whatsit

Apparently I liked that creature on yesterday’s sketch page because here it is again.

Also on the page is Mara Winikat making faces. One of my practices is to run character through their emotional paces. I often present them expressing extreme emotions because
A) Extreme emotions are fun to draw
B) How the character expresses those emotions says a lot about the character. Some of the character that live in my head don’t exhibit emotions loudly. Others couldn’t be subtle to save their lives.
