latest character sheets!

Last week, we hung out at the office after work to do some character studies. I've been doing a lot of doodling during the day (anytime that I was waiting for Flash libraries to load.) Ryan and I think it'll be helpful for both of us to pick couple characters from our random sketches and draw character sheet for each of them since we're trying to come with a style for our new short. Although these characters are not really related to the story we have in mind, it's a good exercise to explore different drawing styles.

Here we go.



A while back, a friend of mine was looking to buy Japanese school girl leg warmers online. I helped her search the internet and I came across tons of different styles and patterns of leg/arm warmers. I never own a pair of these, but I think they make the girls look really cute.



I had a really good time drawing this big guy. He's like a water balloon. When I first moved here, I told my family that NYC forced people to walk a lot and that's why there weren't that many overweight people. Well, that's not so true. I found that out after spending enough time watching people on the subway trains.


I started each of these drawings with a few curves, trying to get it to be as streamline as could. It's a nice break from the high detailed anime character I work on during the day.


And finally, a character set :D The production team at AC photoshoped their faces onto Little Miss Sunshine poster. That inspired me to draw a weird brother with cute little sister.


Ryan's drawings are coming up next.

Those Jimmy characters are great and the animation is very nice. The extra work and more "parts?" really shows and makes for a smooth nice look.

I really underestimated this.
