Elethumbs

I'm really liking the use of thumbnails to plan more finished illustrations. It gives me freedom to just "small draw" (that's not a thing, I just made it up) without worrying about how it will end up looking. Below are some thumbs for my new class, "Basic Illustration." Same instructor as "Mastering the Pencil." My final for that class is garbage so I won't post until I finish it, which might be never. 

This project requires giving human characteristics to an animal or insect. See also: "Anthropomorphic."

This one is not following the rules, but I was having a slow idea day. This is from the kid song: "two elephants went out to play - on a spider's web one day - they had such - enormous fun - they called for another elephant to come..." (Unearthed from my preschool teaching days.) 

I decided to play more with this idea...
