Here’s a doodle inspired by the surf-pop band The Drums.
I don’t usually have much fun drawing human characters, and even more rarely do I enjoy drawing contemporary human characters. Recently, though, I realized that I only find humans boring because I give every male jeans, a plain t-shirt, and a $10 strip-mall haircut, and every female a ponytail and a tank-top. I’ve been habitually neglecting costuming.
So now I’m trying to change that by making a focused effort to draw modern characters that don’t look like their mom dressed them. For instance, I was going for a beachy, carefree, retro look here—and I gave him drumsticks as an homage to my aforementioned inspiration.
