Sketchdump: Mortimer by Avanii Sketchdump: Mortimer by Avanii
"Sketchdump" isn't really a nice word, but that's what it is, isn't it? So here we have 4 out of 6 sketchbook pages filled with little Mortimer the garden dormouse :D Oh, and two Millies. I actually do this with all my new characters: fill pages and pages with them, but I usually forget to scan them in. But I was very pleased with some of these sketches and I wanted to show you more of what I enjoy drawing most: sketches. May upload more sketches if I don't forget to scan them in xD

Some characters are a bit hard for me to draw, even though I like them a lot (Akiko, Sibirica, Lynx guy) but Mortimer was surprisingly easy. He just happened. I have two more pages with various emotions and I just want to draw him over and over again :D I take that as a good sign!

So, various emotions, the very first sketches I made of him (hence the difference between some faces and markings) and some drawings with him and timepieces: clocks and hourglasses, because they represent time (and as Morty is a time traveller it only makes sense to draw them there) and because I like symbolism in art (and I'm fond of clocks myself):)

No huge ugly watermark here because that would ruin the art, but if I catch anyone posting these somewhere I will put watermarks on this and every future work I'll upload. Don't make me do that, please, it would be a shame.

Art, character are to me, *Avanii

Please do not use! This is NOT free art!

Cute sketches! Your style is so expressive and clean. :meow:
Couldn't help but think of a piece of trivia when I saw his name though-- Did you know Walt Disney originally intended to name Mickey "Mortimer"? His brother talked him out of it, but every time I see the name I think of Disney. (:

Thank you! Yes, I know, I like looking up trivia too :aww: Though I didn't pick this name because of that, haha. I picked this name because it sounds old fashioned and, as Morty here is a time traveller, I thought it appropriate that the word 'time' is hidden in his name (morTIMEr) :)

I just love how you choose obscure species for your characters!

I knew what a dormouse was, but not a garden dormouse specifically, so I looked it up ([link]) and they're really cute; I think you did an excellent job making a character of one while still maintaining the feel of the animal. :)

Thanks! The more unknown little creatures really appeal to me (Siberian weasels, garden dormice) and these critters are just so cute I couldn't resist making a character out of them <3 Plus, I like their markings a lot too. It all seemed to fit together nicely :)

It's brilliant how well you've developed the character, art-wise. All the sketches are pretty much wonderful, and they show a good deal of his personality :> I'd not mind at all seeing more pages like these--this one's spectacular
