Fox playing with rubbish bin

Fox playing with rubbish bin - student project

Well, it was supposed to be a fox, but this could probably be mistaken for a racoon!

Started out thinking about inspiration such as Akira Toriyama and Jim Davis, but began looking at the different examples given in the course materials and tried experimenting. I've probably overworked in some areas, and perhaps could have worked more on others, but I'm fairly pleased with it!

Black and white manga and newspaper strips were always something I wanted to emulate in my art when I was younger. Since coming back to art in the past couple of years I've mainly worked with digital tools, so the availibility of colour has led me to ignore the fun that can be had rendering only with ink. I had a lot of fun with this!
