Refined Sketches (List A):

Food: I like this shape of the can but wanted to put a little more effort into the style of the dog and will think about typography a little later.

Ball: Was trying to convey a tennis ball in a puddle but it's looks a bit like an egg so I'm liking the scruffy looking ball with some slobber on it a bit better.

Socks: These were also kind of tricky to make look interesting and make sense to the story. haven't decided which I like better yet.

Poo bag: Kind of like adding the hand.

Final Illustrations (List A):

Kind of wish I chose another object with a bit more detail so the can doesn't look so out of place but I think when I move onto list B, it will start to balance out better.

Refined Sketches (List B):

 

Always wants to get involved in yoga.

Not sure if I'll go for a pose that's more natural for a dog or something more ridiculous.

He sits on the balcony at home and barks at people walking by. He's like the king of the neighbourhood.

I liked sketching this and discovering that a dog bowl is kind of shaped like a crown.

He eats anything. He's part dog, part garbage bin.

This was fun. Trying to find a balance between the dog and the bin shape. Think you need more bin with accents of dog around the lid for it to make sense. I've drawn a big wheelie bin but maybe it should be more like a kitchen bin without the wheel.

He really gets pampered.

Probably my least favourite idea at the moment but gonna see how it goes.

Just exploring some faces that look a little less sketchy and more stylised.
