How To Train Your Doodle

Collected sketchbook stuff again :) In the last doodlelayout I tried to sketch out some characters in the feel of 50's animation design. Keeping in mind contrasting shapes, curves and tangents. It was a fun little exercise in design discipline because I usually tend to draw just by keeping the pen moving, without actually thinking where the next line should go.
The "fishnaut" is a kind of a tribute to the character in Antti Kemppainen's illustration. Sketched it out with a ballpoint pen while boating at Näsijärvi and slapped in some quick phoshop color.
