In one of my independent studies this semester I am studying different artists' approaches to illustration. I take a week or so and study their technique and then I try to apply what i've learned on a personal illustration. For my first illustration I chose Cory Loftis as the artist whose technique I wanted to emulate. He has a really fun way of characterizing animals/figures and a very loose and fun style that I really enjoy. He doesn't have a website but you can look at his blog here. This piece was a lot of fun! I will revise it a little in the future but for now it's finished. Comments welcome!
