the problem with Yes Man is he’s so default smiley I can’t imagine his ‘angry face’ getting past a sort of snap before diving straight into loco 'well hey there mind if I rip out your spine’ crazy grin mode
Someone asked me how I get my lines to behave in photoshop and while a lot of it is just practice I have to credit the fact that immediate practice, aka warming up, is big part of the process for me. Basically I take any old sketches I have kicking about in my computer and do some practice linework on them before I set to working on the piece I’m actually going to do; it’s just like limbering up, basically, but then I end up with these unfortunate Frankenstein-like hybrids of scribble and linework that nobody ever sees because they’re hella ugly. So yeah have some YesMary from this week as an example.
(More doodles from not-watching-tv on the sofa) I think one of the things that draws me to Fred/Yes Man as an interesting concept is how he’s suddenly got all these new emotions and doesn’t really know what they are or how to deal with them.
So yeah I tried to imagine how he’d react to being really fucking sad for the first time.
