BLOBS #110 RESULTS

Welcome to Results Day! 

This week's batch of Blobs were inspired by our Thanksgiving weekend road trip! We went to Indiana. I kept my eyes peeled for shapes that popped out to me throughout the weekend. Here are a few...

 Rolling out dough for yummy pumpkin pie, spiky looking flower, shimmery leaf bouquet filler, and a familiar ceramic sugar pot with cap.

But it wasn't until our road trip home when a collection came together...

I zoomed in to pluck these shapes out...

...and turned them in to Blobs #110! Here is a quick look at before and after sheets...

I was so very happy to have my daughter Anna, join me in creating characters! It's been a while since I had a partner to sketch characters with and I loved doing these side by side. Of course Anna cranked her designs out much faster than I did and even gave me some pointers. Here's how they transformed...

                                                                                   ANNA'S LEFT (CRAB), AMY'S RIGHT (FAMILY OF PEAS ON A SPOON)

                                                                                  ANNA'S LEFT (CRAB), AMY'S RIGHT (FAMILY OF PEAS ON A SPOON)

                                                                           ANNA'S LEFT (ROLY POLY) AMY'S RIGHT (CEREAL LOVING BLOB) 

                                                                          ANNA'S LEFT (ROLY POLY) AMY'S RIGHT (CEREAL LOVING BLOB) 

Since I couldn't come up with a character quick enough for this shape, I turned him in to a purebred Blob (one who belongs to no particular species...except Blobs). Since spoons were on my mind from the previous design I decided to give this Blob a breakfast dish he would somersault out of bed for...cereal! 

Because he was covered up by another character, I spent some time figuring out what the rest of him might look like in color...  

            He looks like he might be friends with the  HUNGRY HALLOWEEN  Blobs!

Moving on...

                                                 ANNA'S LEFT (FISH WITH SUNGLASSES, AMY'S RIGHT (DUCK LIKES TO MAKE HATS)

                                                ANNA'S LEFT (FISH WITH SUNGLASSES, AMY'S RIGHT (DUCK LIKES TO MAKE HATS)

Anna helped me with this guy! I pictured a duck sleeping, but it was absolutely not working for me. So she helped draw a better bill and finished off his homemade paper hat. Thank you Anna! DUCK seemed like he needed a friend to give a hat to, so when I cleaned him up I added this little toad...

And the last character...

                                                                                          ANNA'S LEFT (BABY GOAT), AMY'S RIGHT (KING CAT FISH)

                                                                                         ANNA'S LEFT (BABY GOAT), AMY'S RIGHT (KING CAT FISH)

And that's it!
