Black Bear

I had to take a break from the puppet sketches. This was one of those quick and dirty painting sketches. I had a burst of inspiration and got to work. It was a lot of fun!

Policeman Puppet

The Policeman puppet. My Oma got a lot of use out of the green fabric. My Mother says it was an old wool suit of hers. He may have had a wooden baton at one point but over time it must have gone missing.

Die Polizei sketches

When designing secondary characters I tend simplify the eyes. A character that has relatively realistic eyes (eyeball, iris, pupil) gives them a soul. You connect with them on an emotional level. With the policeman I want to keep him sort of mechanical as if he has only one catch criminals. Seek and destroy!
