Before you read on, make sure you read the entire story here, so you know what the hell this post is about ;-)
I thought you might like to see the creation process behind the magical and mysterious character of koalabo.
I started off using canvas sketch paper and acrylic paints. I had absolutely no idea how to draw a Koala. I started with a koala head sketch with star-like eyes, and then created a weird koala on a tank track. You can see I already had an idea to have his belly as a magical clock!
I then moved to regular pen and paper, trying to draw a koala head. I decided that koalabo would not have legs, nor a tank track, but rather, a spring to move around on.
Why a spring you ask?
The answer is obvious and i shouldn't have to explain it to you. Ask children, they will know!
Another attempt at koalabo- magic clock belly and spring seem to be the way to go!
Below, I have added an antenna to Koalabo's head. still practicing my koala heads though.
My final sketch, before moving on to the real painting.
