It all starts with a concept

So lately I have been looking for a job and thats currently my full time job, on top of that I still am trying to finish my film and keep myself sane. This past week I just got done with teaching a Summer school program at my old college, where I taught 6-10 year olds to sculpt and make maquettes I must say it was fun. Another thing I have been up to is going through my old sketchbooks and redesign quick sketches and recreating the image, hopefully improving the character or design. Here is the concept sketch that inspired the drawing to come.
