Below is a recent painting I finished for Team Dawg Inc. This is one of the main characters in their children's book series, Bobby Dawg. He is the Pawstown Police Officer who, "loves his family, career, and friends. He also dreams of being a major league ball player."
I sometimes forget how important it is to figure out a complete drawing before beginning to paint. But when I do remember it sure makes the painting a lot easier. I had worked on a few character designs before illustrating Trevor's Bully Problem and after the book was done I was asked to draw Bobby Dawg in a baseball uniform. I hope to share in some upcoming posts more character designs that I had drawn for Team Dawg.
