Hard-Fightin' Hippos

So this is what I started with: a so-ugly-its-cute hippo statue my mom gave me this past summer. I love the circular shape, and it has a great expression. 

Step 1: Create simple outlines to establish general shapes.

Step 2: Duplicate and reflect to create the full shape.

Step 3: Create shadows and create areas of contrast.

Step 4: Convert to black and tighten up first draft.

Step 5: Add color and see if the design is working. I'm not conviced. It feels dark and too complicated. 

Step 6: Refine design, change colors, and see where it's at now. 

Next Steps: I think the design needs some more tweaking, but it's late and I'm tired. There's always time to refine tomorrow!
