Character Design Challenge: Hippie Sloth Seth

Seth the Sloth
Seth is a singer / songwriter who travels around the world with his guitar to spread the message of peace and love through his music. Seth is an optimist and believes that there is something good in every person, which also makes him a bit naive. He is a caring, understanding person, a good listener and very relaxed in his way of life. Sometimes a bit too relaxed and carefree which may give an impression laziness. He hopes through music to reach out to people and make them understand that we all need to take better care for nature and all living things around us. Because we should cherish what we have, it can all be gone in a blink of an eye.

Character Design Challenge: Sloth Colors


did some studies on artwork from other artists in hope to learn more about lighting and color, I loved this Background from Kung Fu Panda with the orange light hitting the surface. 

unfortunately I do not know from whom this work is so that I can give credit to them, because damn... I love how they use those colors.

Sketches Hippie sloth and random expressions

the theme of this month is hippies, This time I didn't wanted to draw a human, so I diceded to design an animal with more human traits. a sloth seemed the ideal animal for this theme ^_^

I also did some exploratory sketches of facial expressions and looked at how other artists translate these emotions into drawings. butt still gave it my own touch :)
