So I have this character that I've been drawing for a few years, and he's gone through some changes each time I revisit him. I've named him "Petite Pan", from a title of a digital painting I did of him years ago:
I think I started drawing him when I took a Greek Mythology course... or maybe some night when I decided to put on Pan's Labyrinth. Either way, I later on researched satyrs and found out how mischievous they can be, and decided to draw Petite Pan a little differently.
Every few years I would revisit him briefly and he would change slightly. Here are some really rough sketches from a few years ago, during a character design class while learning about expressions. The last one is a recent version, and this time I added a few more goat-like characteristics, which may make him look slightly creepy, but I like it.
It's great looking back at all the different ways I drew and interpreted a character (there are many more drawings of him but I haven't scanned them or don't have them anymore). I can see where I was exploring with different shapes and expressions. Old drawings are also great jumping off points whenever I am stuck in a drawing rut. I have shelves of old sketchbooks to look back on and see how far I've grown.
Finally, here is a digital coloring of Petite Pan mid-sprint. :)
