Cybaby

We can rebuild him. We can make him better than he was before. Better. Stronger. Fussier.

If you recognize that reference, then you're old.

Cybaby is one of those illustrations that I inexplicably thought would take no time at all, and of course it ended up taking forever. I don't know why my brain does that to me. You'd think I would be able to look at an extremely complicated and detailed sketch and realize I won't be able to draw it in half an hour, but I get surprised every time.

Based on a Post-It Note sketch I did a lonnng time ago.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.



Here's the digital sketch of Cybaby I did for this drawing. I forgot to add his wispy baby hair in the final drawing.




And here's the original Post-It Note sketch I did some 10 years or more ago. Yikes! Look at that squishy, misshapen head! I like to think I've improved a little in the last 10 years.

  1. hey this is great! i do like that wisp of hair adds a bit of attitude.

    cool to see your sketch from 10 years ago, your shapes and form has definitely gotten better. but even so, the sketch is still great and if you hadn't pointed out the mis-shapen head i wouldn't have noticed.
