Sketch Club: The Fluffy Guy

Here's the Mark for this weeks Sketchclub. I'm trying to use these as a way to experiment and try out new things.
My approach this week was to sketch out the character, then use the lasso tool to cut out shapes to then fill with the paint bucket. Then I went into each flat shape with one extra shade to create some form. And finished it off by putting my original line work back on top with blend mode: soft light.
I'm actually quite happy the way it turned out! ... for now :P

And here are my sketches from the day. Not as happy with these, but hey, you have to do a lot of drawing before they get any good.

PS: This past Friday I was officially introduced on the Sketch Club Blog.
Thanks Marcelo :]

Hello Kendra,
You're my new favorite sketch clubber. You are a drawing machine (as your intro post on Sketch club goes...), do you get that compliment all the time?? I'm going through your blog and it just looks like an understatement. Thanks for all the great art posted here as well.
