I'm keen to 'find my own style' as I don't want to fall into the trap of producing a generic Disney-esque Timon-type meerkat. He doesn't even look like one. Sketching allows me to explore the shapes involved - I'll need to be able to draw a meerkat from any angle. You only get that kind of 'expertise' with hard graft I'm afraid.
Enjoy today's doodles. x
