Re-Designing Pubby

My good friend Jinny helped me out a whole lot the other night and gave me some really great advice on how to improve Pubby's design.

So after a lot of iterations and experimentation, this is where I ended up! I'm a lot more satisfied with this design, than I was with how I previously drew him. I'm sure he'll change over time, but I think this is a big improvement. Also, I'm entering Pubby into a character design contest, so I figured I'd made a new turnaround for him.

And these were some initial sketches of Pubby that I did to really experiment and figure out how I wanted him to look.

Characters During Weeklies

The characters from this weekend were done during Weeklies and for Weeklies!

Cheato[e] is a dog who enjoys singing even if he isn't all that great at it. He is very carefree and doesn't really have much common sense. He has always been the clown of the liar group, and is one of the least popular out of their group, although he does enjoy carrying Cimc on his back.

And since I drew Cheato[e] for the Weeklies Scribble Contest, here is the Scribble overlayed.

Malcolm is a kind old man who runs a foster home. He is very eccentric and interesting. His son Kevin helps him take care of the kids and actually helps him out around the room as well.

Character Explorations!

Some more character drawings! I did a few explorations this week.

CP Auron is a skater girl from Aiml World who collects poisons. She's a big fan of Gahla, the poison mage. She is very demanding and controlling. If things are not done the way she wants them to, she will take drastic measures to make sure they are done correctly according to her. She has her own pad underneath the Candle Park in The Hood and hates Muko.

The Grandfather Who Talks Like This, often known as The Grandfather, is always watching over his grandson, TGWTLT, and is very kind to his family. Although, when he is in a bad mood, he can cause storms to whole Worlds and cause very much destruction. He has never had a confrontation with The Nays themselves, but he knows almost everything about them because he watches them and hears from his son.

Did some character explorations of Pubby. Still trying to figure out his design.

And some of explorations of Tropik.

Horses at the Field of Dreams!

So this week we had the opportunity to draw horses at a place known as the Field of Dreams. It was only for a short hour, but it was interesting to see them up close.

Here are my sketches from the day!

And some pictures we took while there!

Quick Characters!

Been super busy these past few days, so I haven't spent too much time on my characters, but still a nice little break!

Tropik is the turtle who aids Frank Lady in leading Frank Lady World. He does not tolerate foolish behavior and will always try to stop those who do so even if he must use violence. Tropik is very strict and often ridicules Frank Lady for being too lenient.

Opko is a very understanding man who hates it when people hold grudges against one another. He has sided with Bro and Yaguzi in going up against PS World. Opko has the ability to teleport, which he uses at the most convenient times.
Subeebia is a very loud water otter who is second in-charge of the Little Kid Club. He is very close friends with Finchuck and will usually act as a follower of him. He is often pushed around by his older brothers, but that doesn't keep him from standing up for himself and keeping the confidence he gains from his friends. His two brothers end up losing their popularity, causing Subeebia to grow weary, but with the help of his friends, he gains even more confidence in himself in the end.

Character Heads

Last week for Character Design class, a lot of our assignments revolved around working with character heads. My good friend Jinny helped me out and taught me a whole lot about basic head construction!

Some final turnarounds of Hamlet and Ophelia. We had the opportunity to choose which time period and how old they were, so I decided it'd be interesting to do a present day story where Hamlet is a "hipster."

And these were some sketches I did before going in and choosing a final design for Hamlet and Ophelia.

This week I did some ovals and rectangles twisting in space.

A character based off of one of my sketches below.

Drew some gestures of peoples' heads!
