And it begins...

the Major Project

Yes. The time is now. I haven't posted for a while as it's been a crazy couple weeks but I'm back and I've got some Major Project designs (yes I'm going to capitalize it every time because it deserves it). For this lengthy project I'm working on a short 1 to 2 minute film with www.katymcarbonmade.com (she doesn't have a blog yet but I'll beat one out of her).

It stars a life drawer, a life model, an angry lady with her baby pram and a duck. But that's all I'm saying right now.

Onward ho! So, character design doesn't always come to me straight away. Well, its been a while since I've crawled into that little space of animation anyway so it took me a little while to get into it. I give you, the beginning of Paddy, the main character. And there's a couple birds and a life model face chucked in there somewhere. Woops.


 
These ones were mostly for body shape etc. We're headed for nice and simple. Me and Katy (Katy and I?) had discussions and we've finally decided he's going to look roughly like this.

 
This was generally me getting familiar with him and seeing what felt most comfortable and looked best when drawing him. He'll be finalised pretty soon. I think he's kind of adorable, when he's not looking creepy. He's like a human-cow-monkey hybrid.
 
I'll get back to you on other designs and aspects as the project continues but for now I give you

Paddy: the Cowmankey
