I Saw a Macaw

Well, not really. It's been a while since I've posted but I think I'm back in the mode now. Actually, after hearing about a new movie in the makings I was inspired to have my own concepts and doodles collected that hypothetically could apply. So more of my posts will be related to this here bird. I found it very hard today to figure out how to give a bird character without losing the key things that make it the kind of bird it is. Hmmm. I then thought to reference Iago (Gilbert Godfrey?) from "Aladdin" and the Rooster (Mel Gibson?) from "Rock-a-Doodle," both childhood favorite animations. So hopefully my second time around, and third and fourth, will be more successful. Don't get me wrong, I like some of these little guys. I am amped to do some environments, too. Yeah sketch-a-day!
