Over at the Sacks 10 Blog:http://sacks10.blogspot.com/ There is a contest going on to Draw your favorite Joe character. I think this is a great idea for a challenge. Here is my entry Mutt and Junkyard(going to shoot for doing a few more). Included the progress...Sketch,then Inks...mostly with Sharpie and some Illustrator. The Coloring of the characters is Photoshop and the BG was created in Illustrator...took advantage of the extrude and Bevel to get the 3D.
