Development Art of Bob Oblong #002.
Here are a few early concept sketches of Bob Oblong. His eyes were wider apart here. I remember moving them closer to give him a dumber look. Bob is somewhat clueless, while his wife, Pickles has seen it all and done it all.
And this is before I started drawing a little pantlet on him. Early Bob wore a long shirt, no pants. But he always had the tie. I wanted him to be a Ward Cleaver type but with no arms or legs.
