It's amazing how the tiniest mark can change the whole look of a character. Those tiny marks can create emotion, change the age of a character or take the life out of them. I feel this is (and probably will be for the rest of my illustration life) one of the greatest challenges in creating characters. Some times it helps to create a clay or Sculpy model of the character. Doodling constantly also helps me get to know them and keep them consistent. As I look back on a previous post, it almost seems like no time has passed seeing that I have similar challenges.
