|I drew my earphones with the fancy retractable thingy...|
|I liked the way the chord wrapped around the retractable thingy, so I zoomed in on that made it more abstract...|
|I liked the way I drew the chords in the last drawing, so I made 'em look more fluid and organic...|
|...and came up with this as my character. (the ray gun was inspired from the original earbuds)|
The assignment was to draw an ordinary object as realistically as possible, zoom in on a particular area of the drawing, re-draw that area and abstract it, then repeat again. Then, take whatever you came up with and create a character out of it. Here's what I came up with.
