Took a quick vid of these simpler emoji-style emotions...I was eager to wrap up the #100dayproject since that turned out to be a whopping long time...but also was intrigued by the art of saying more with less, so I wanted to try minimizing. These little circular characters ensued, with tiny features. Over the past 4 months of this project, I did notice my emotional-intel vocab increasing, so that was a side benefit. And yet I ran out of ideas often & was prone to making up feelings like 'owlish'. It seemed logical at the time, but if I'm pressed to elaborate, I have no idea how to define that. Open to your thoughts, if you happened to see 'owlish' and think 'ah, yes, I can identify'?
Anyhow, Dr. Seuss paved the path on invented words, so we can all pick up that torch and such.
Next time, I'll post more vids of figurative stuff in action + extra sketchbook bits from live figure drawing sessions that I haven't posted anywhere else. (oooo, exclusive)
