Man does not live by Crash Bandicoot alone no matter how much fun he is to draw. He'll be back soon. Meantime here's something I did as a demonstration in 1998 in the very early days of my school. It was from the Visual Development class. I drew the composition on watercolor paper with a permanent ink black line pen. Then I painted it using watercolor and gouache which is also called opaque watercolor because it's a heavier paint. Then I used some sort of pastel sticks for color touch ups and enhancement. I did it in one session. It was fun and it's always been a favorite of mine. It was very spontaneous and captures the life energy and enthusiasm we were all experiencing at the beginning of The Animation Academy.
