Oh my god, I FINALLY figured out the problem I was having in getting down my own version.
I was rushing too hard into making him directly realistic and human, and it didn’t feel quite right. Lego people are small and cute and stylized, so I decided to draw HIM that way too, and made him much more loose, cartoony and cute. THEN I started feeling much better.
A li’l short, a li’l chubby. I started grinning foolishly somewhere halfway through my sketch of Good Cop.
