I guess I was still thinking about Bud and his sweater when I sat down later to draw the drawing of the day. My sketchbook features an ongoing quest to find a way to draw a Fair Isle sweater in an interesting way that doesn’t drive you crazy with the detail. I think this brushwork approach works pretty well when “simplified for animation” and then colored.
Josef, of course, clashes with everything. That’s one of his superpowers. This is the first time I’ve colored Josef when he’s been drawn to the new model with the spiral spots on his back end.
