I was going through an older sketchbook and found a sketch of the
character above —
I felt it definitely needed a lot of refining — there
was something about Diego that made me want to put some polish on him.
So I took a scan of it into my digital software and began painting
over it — selecting parts and moving things around — A LOT
I finally felt like our amigo was a finally taking shape.
He's pretty silly I admit — but to me there's something
endearing, and bright and cheery about him.
Hope you agree.
