Character Design- first research- 'Best Mates'

Those are the first designs I have done for Gemma's project when the lead characters were pandas. I was looking for geometrical shapes and also trying to find a good balance for the anthropomorphism that the story required. UPA's cartoons were one of the inspirations. However the anteaters doodles at the top decided Gemma's to choose them as main characters. I didn't realised at this time that they should walk on the back of their front paws. I corrected this error on the final designs.

Character Design- Best Mates

This is a work I have done for a fellow student for her graduation movie project.
The storyline was mostly about an unlucky Dom Juan in a zoo. First Gemma was thinking of pandas but then swapped for anteaters after I show her some doodles.

Isken Roads character design research

This come from an old Tv series project I made some years ago. I put a lot of work in it so I will be able to post other samples from it. As you can see there are watercolor studies but I also completed some model sheets and storyboards.

Character Design Research

While I was doing the Jam Thief, I didn't stop sketching some character design research...
