Drawing pigs quickly

I was coy last time I posted about this, but I’ve been sketching during RPG game sessions on Zoom.

I love the combination of pure imagination and documentary-sketching speed it requires, and also the way things get out of hand.

We pause in a stairwell to read up on how enchanted time-bubbles might affect time-of-the-essence clauses in contracts.

And the animals we collect along the way.

Training Arthur. That’s his top hat. I don’t know why.

But occasionally I hurt no-one but myself. For example, I am perfectly aware that pigs are the hardest animal for me to draw without reference.

I still caused this situation, however.

I rather like the Ronald Searle quality of these two.

Which, predictably, escalated.
