this should be a good one.

I like using red for character shapes. ;)

the doodlers said...

That's a neato roughing technique.

ivaylo said...

This almost looks like a departure from your usual style, but it's great nontheless!
I really like the "quickly sketched" background.
Way cool!

Ryan said...

Awesome. Love the cheetah.

Goobeetsablog said...

Hi Martin! I definitly love your animals,

A. Riabovitchev said...

Yikes! You're one talented guy. Though I think you should have kept the rough up along side it, it's nice to see the process....

Great work AGAIN!

Emma said...

Just... wow. Every time I check back here, there's another awesome drawing up, and you keep on switching up your styles! It's inspiring, and very cool to see that there are people who use style instead of letting it dictate what they draw... if that made any sense?

martin wittig said...

Thank you so much for your kind words! Your character designs really inspires me, and I'm amazed at all of the designs that I've seen here and on your website. Can't wait to see more!

the doodlers said...

This is great. Very intense. It looks like it belongs in a Rudyard Kipling book. I agree with Smook that it would be great to see the rough alongside of the final.

Thanks for the nice note on our blog too! ~Arna
