vern and lettuce: the moles

For a daily warm-up, I thought I'd try to draw all the different characters in Pickle Rye, the home of Vern and Lettuce (my comic book coming out on Sept 30th). I present to you... the moles! Feel free to colour them in, if you like!

Find out about the first three books in the DFC Library here.

"a group of moles is called a labour" ? I didn't know that !

(I didn't even know there were groups of moles. I though they were rather individualistic animals)

I didn't know, either! Wikipedia is a wonderful thing. :)

And yeah, the moles have their own ideas about everything, they don't always get along very well.

How long does it take you to do these daily 'warm-ups'? They always look so finished!

For some reason, these characters are faster and easier to draw than most thing, I think it's because I feel I know them quite well. If they were new characters, it might take me longer. But not sure exactly how long it took me, I think no more than an hour.

I'm the same. I can draw my devils and cartoon birds pretty quickly but any new character design takes a while to "feel right."

I heart the moles, especially when they tried to sell "special grass" to city people.

Ah yes, I see that drawing characters you know so well would make a difference. I would be scared I got carried away with the warm-up and didn't get round to the actual work I was supposed to be doing!

That is always a worrisome possibility! :P
