CGMA - Character Design - Week 6

Last week we got to draw dragons and their rider!  I wanted to redesign a fan art piece that I had done for How To Train Your Dragon.  The image on the bottom left is the old one and the new one is one the right.  I got some awesome feedback from Brett on it and can't wait to make the appropriate changes.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 5

I got some great feedback from the amazing Brett Bean this week.  If I find some time I'll be improving upon the cowboy and his goat and working more with the Barbarians.  I didn't get as many cafe sketches in this week as I would have liked.  I'm trying to focus on less is more.  I have a tendency to put in too much detail and detail that may not even be needed.  I need to think more about the decisions I am making when it comes to design.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 4

Week 4 ended up being rushed.  I should have spent more time thinking about my poses and I sort of did them quickly because they were due soon.  This is what I ended up getting done.  We had to do a few drawings of different emotions that were poses and some that showed facial expression.  Then of course there are a few studies from Starbucks at the end.

I'll post this week (week 5) most likely on Wednesday or Thursday.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 3

Last week we had to design barbarians.  Each one had to have specific qualities.  I got some great feedback from Brett and can't wait to fix these guys up and make them better.  The girl on the far left was suppose to be timid, routine, and orderly.  I focused too much on her personality that I kind of forgot that she should be more barbarian.  I need to change her mop to a spear or stick, maybe even a broken spear, and change her outfit some.  The other two just need a little more detailing to make them special.

The other drawings are drawn from life at different locations.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 2

I have a bad habbit of making heads too big.  I always have to readjust in photoshop...
 I also need to work on pushing characters more and improving upon my reference.
This one was rushed and I got too masculine with her face.  I hope to do a much better job next week.
