Especially this little guy, he seems like a sketch for a character from the Be Our Guest scene in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast!

I was amazed that, after all the times I drew that damn measuring cup, after studying it closely for a minute immediately before, that when it came time, I couldn’t remember how the handle attachment actually looked!

I was truly surprised by this, and thought it a good lesson on observation, though drawing blind was definitely the method I preferred.
