the last character design assignment in andy suriano’s class and boy was it beefy. these guys have a whole lotta shapes goin’ on.
i was unfamiliar with possibly the most bad ass group in the dc universe but i enjoyed trying to find my style in simplifying and exaggerating their shapes while trying to stay true to their character.
here are some rough character designs i did for a group story assignment where we’re storyboarding a retelling of jack and the beanstalk inspired by quentin tarentino movies.
i present to the cyber sphere, my first year film at calarts (aka the results of lack of sleep and decaying sanity) !!!
film stress is over. my wizard dude will make his debut at the open show this saturday.

I’m going into my film with the same wide eyed enthusiasm. 25 days left to animate and clean up. Let’s do this
the teen angel who fell into the wrong crowd
a barbarian with an unknown past, discovers the truth behind her birth when she comes upon a magic pendant and learns to wield her newfound powers and defend her home from invading wizards. But she learns that her and the wizards may not be so different after all.
Somehow working nonstop in prep for #portfolio day here at #calarts somehow managed to pop this guy into existence #troll #idk
rough character designs for a show with barbarians and wizards! gonna clean these babies up and add a bit more action poses. and color. by next week. before portfolio day on tuesday. man. i got tired just typing all that.
sketches for an upcoming character design assignment in which we design a barbarian man and woman, their creature, along with an evil wizard and their henchmen.
i may have over thought it. because i kind of forgot to focus on shape, mostly with the barbarian woman. i wanted to capture a real muscular woman’s body type instead of the overly sexed up glamazon huntress look, just for the sake of doing something ~different~. i was most recently inspired by 1st female UFC champ ronda rousey and how she is exactly how a real woman would look if she could kick a lot of ass and didn’t take roids (or get breast implants because she took too much roids).
because im goin’ against the grain here, i may have sacrificed “appeal” in the end. sure it’s less “original” but unique doesn’t necessarily mean good. and there’s a reason for the forumla you see people do a thousand times…it’s because it works. the rebel in me feels like i’m selling out, but i haven’t even sold in yet? i’m not known basically is what i’m saying. and it would benefit me to learn the rules before i break em. not sayin’ i’m gonna sexify her. but it’s something to keep in mind and write about while i’m in cg class.
going through some stuff preparin’ for portfolio day and came across this character design. i think i didnt post it cause i felt like it was pretty weak. but whatevez here are my weird angel/devil creatures.
also, not sure if i ever posted this but if anyone’s interested in some inspiration i reblog mine here http://yummygrandma.tumblr.com/
feel free to share your inspiration blog too
another character design assignment. this time we were to make up a league of presidents and come up with a general plot for their show. With the help of my friend (http://aldoj.tumblr.com/) my idea was about all the assassinated presidents. they escape their deaths with the help of a time machine sent from Obama when he realized great men were murdered by the illuminati to continue their secret reign over the world. The four form a league of rogue ex-presidents hellbent on their wish to gain liberty and justice and vengeance and take down every last member of the evil secret organization, The Illuminati!
