mouthing off

Here's a page of mouth shapes I did for a quick freelance project. The client is developing some products and they're sort of stumped with different ways to go with the character's mouths. They have a few approved designs and asked me to just give them some new mouth ideas.

I love doing freelance like this. I'm given a fairly open ended assignment and have a lot of creative freedom. These jobs don't come along all that often.

So yeah, here's some mouths.... a handful of which i like, a few duds in the mix, but that's okay; they were looking for quantity.

I painted them up just for kicks... Oh the kicks I had.



keep on kicking,
phil

Love seeing the pure joy coming out in the drawings. Awesome!

I think my favorite part is the blood-scrawl signature at the bottom.

i'm pretty sure that one in the bottom corner is not a mouth.
