Amos revisited

Since I have such an abundance of free time on my hands lately, I thought it would be fun to go back and re-do a bunch of design work I did of a character of mine back in mid-2006 at SCAD. I like the character and his story which, some day maybe I'll get into, but the old stuff definitely needed re-working, so off I go!
So far managed to pin down a design I like and am working on a turnaround, but his front view is giving me trouble. To keep from getting stuck and/or throwing something I decided to switch gears to some fun stuff and did a few expressions.
So this is Amos! You can tell I am biased and have an affinity for lopsided smiles hah.

But we eventually made up

From my collection of grumpy self portraits

So, I'm not sure if this is true for you guys too but one of my favorite things to draw when I'm just sitting around and wanna get the stylus moving is myself. It's easy and doesn't require a lot of overthinking and that's nice!
I'm not sure if my choice of subject matter is because I'm some kind of huge narcissist or that this way I won't offend anybody but myself if I screw it up heh. Probably both.

Also for some reason I generally tend to draw myself looking grumpy or annoyed. Lighten up, self!

Hi there, blogosphere! I've decided to be a little more proactive about drawing as much as possible and, being attention-starved as I am, figured it would be a good motivator to share these tidbits with you all. Expect lots of drawings of girls, animals, and other generally round and adorable things. Also any experiments with REAL ART I may or may not attempt in my never-ending struggle to learn how to draw.

I'll start off with a few things that aren't exactly new, but I figured I should break the ice regardless.
Anyways, here are a few sketches of an original character of mine who I draw when nothing else comes to mind.
Which is to say, constantly.
