So this right here is my final copy of my Character Design assignment. The task was to design a character, and then draw him/her/it in eight different poses that illustrate his/her/it's character.
I'm pretty pleased, I think I'm definitely improving at least, which is something to be proud of in itself. The drawings on the top left of the page leave me rather disappointed, I'd like to think I could do better.
With that said, I'm fairly pleased with several of the other poses, in particular the one on the top right, bottom right, center, and center left. So it seems I'm 50% happy with this assignment.
I'm still struggling with balancing appeal and structure, which is constantly in my head. I'm also having a lot of trouble with pushing facial expressions to extremes, I find it causes a breaking in structure as well as appeal. I.e. having someone letting out a scream of pure terror. Something like that is a very intense challenge for me.
Even more beans of the cool variety.
I shall update again with interesting things soon, dear reader.
Until we meet again.
