So I decided on my idea for my Layout & Timing class. I ended up doing some character sketches of the possible main characters for my short, so I could get an idea of their shapes and what their designs would be. I have a rough idea revolving around Cimc, Cimcicola, and Snuvy. The others will all be background characters, if even in it.
Some more characters I've done this weekend! Darkitu's pose was actually based off an old sketch from earlier this month.
Blue Ice is newest of the Higher Up Birds and does not particularly enjoy dealing with children. In his experiences as a Bird-In-Training, he would not entertain his kids but instead he would just watch over them and make sure that they were behaving. Blue Ice is usually a fairly brave dragon, but when he is dealing with his Nay, Veetoff, he can become quite cowardly. He is usually more of a follower and doesn't really think on his own very much. He enjoys to watch over events rather than participate in them, but he is very intelligent. Blue Ice is possibly one of the strongest in Tag World, but he is often too lazy to use his powers and will usually not use his full strength.
Darkitu is a very strong assistant to Gallu. He is very good at hiding in the shadows and sneaking around when necessary. Darkitu will often help Gallu in indirect ways, as his way to guiding Gallu on the right path. He often tries to hide any good deeds that he does in order to keep his cool front. He has a weird way with words and talks about Speedvoring it up. He also enjoys complete silence during his Thinking Plan.
So it's been awhile since I've drawn in my sketchbook (probably about 2-3 weeks actually). Last night I got some inspiration from looking through Jinny Hinkle's sketchbook, so I started to sketch a bit. I'm trying to fill up this sketchbook since I'm only about 10 pages away.
Some characters from my thesis, mostly to warm up.
Sadly, last night was the last first ASC meeting of a semester that I will be able to be a part of. It was a lot of fun though, and I was able to draw some stuff during Weeklies.
Bluebreath is a very outgoing creature. His close friendship with Cimc causes him to have a great relationship with his family. He likes to talk a lot, and is very good at lying. He has a sly ability to twist peoples' words against them, which he is very proud of.
During the Weeklies meeting, we did some gesture drawings of an active Super Smash Bros game. They paused at certain parts towards the end, but we drew them in action for the first match. It was a lot of fun!
This week we pitched ideas in Layout & Timing class. The class seemed to be leaning towards the first idea, though I was torn between that one and the third one. So this weekend I'm planning to develop my first idea a bit more and probably go with that one. This is for our semester-long project.
And here are some more character drawings from the week!
Oleg is a very jolly old man whose laugh can shake entire houses and be heard from miles away. He will do whatever he can to make his grandchildren happy and enjoys spoiling them when he can. Though he is a grandfather, he is not particularly responsible, as he did lose one of them when going out on a trip with them.
Yaguzi is an easygoing guy who loves socializing. Although he gets nervous around new groups of people, he usually appears to be very collected and calm nevertheless. Yaguzi has the ability to travel through time, and is able to see events that his self in other time lines are seeing. Sometimes he has outbursts and his abilities are not always completely under his control, so he can look to be suspicious from other peoples' point of view. His family is not yet known, but he comes from a line of "cats," as he puts it, because they are known for using claws in battle. Also, Yaguzi was trained under Mr Dude, so he has formed a close bond with him also because of their similarities in time traveling abilities.
Because of the holiday, my weekend has been a little more relaxed. You'll be seeing some classwork soon, but for now these are more daily characters.
Gostream is an outgoing actor and son of James. He became friends with Gair back in The Guy Who Talks Like This World when working on a movie. Although Gostream can be very lively, he becomes quite nervous around those of high authority. Gostream talks to just about anyone and can easily befriend them.
Mushy is a walking, talking mushroom mage. In general, he is quite an energetic boy. Just like his friend Kai, Mushy is studying the ways of magic. He was trained by the wizard Floaz, brother of Buisze.
