Funny Ball-Shaped Creature
Some days I start these sketches with nothing much in mind. But today I had this image clearly in my head. It is a ball shaped creature with a sad old human like face that has muscular arms coming out of the sides of its head/body where ears normally would. Its feet fold under it when it is standing. The feet are like a rabbit's or maybe a feas' and they extend out away under it as it leaps up - like a frog's. The skin is bumpy or scaley - maybe like an orange or that sort of fruit. There is a bumpy dorsal ridge that runs all the way down its back like a lizard's. It has a short fat tail that can bend to a limited degree. (I had fun thinking this one up) This took about 40 min. to draw.
