Some characters from my elementary school years, drawn and then painted as practice for some of my bigger watercolor projects this past semester at school.
Upper-left is the generically-named Big Bear, who is a stuffed bear that came to life; he came around in 1990 or early 1991. The potato dude with the bandanna and sword is one I drew for the first time in late 1991 during my first year of school, and his name is Pototo (which is pronounced "poh-TAH-toh," not "poh-toh-toh," by the way.) The cow guy is... Kow, and he comes from 1992 and 1993. And finally, the Mushrooms of Doom are (from left to right) Fungus Capp, Tommy Fungi, and Mushy Room; they were first made up when I was in 5th grade.
