Character Inspiration

When I can't think of anything in particular to paint, (which is often) I like to make up characters. They can be anything, here for example are a western robot gunslinger, a sad princess, and an aging knight. I just give them any attitude that comes to mind and have fun with them. A lot of times they suggest a story idea which I bank for later or they're just for fun. Whatever! Keeps the old brain and wrist moving.

Hi Andree! Thanks mucho.Good ol' Photoshop. I'm ashamed to say I haven't touched real paint in a couple years. I plan on getting back into the weekly workshop mode again soon, I burned out on it a while back but I miss the discipline.
