Character Design Quick Studies
Here are the midterm drawings from weeks 3 and 4 from my character design class. It's supposed to be all about gesture and story, taking what the model inspires and running with it. Since the Academy is in the habit of re-using the same models forever it's a breath of fresh air to be able to draw them as whatever you feel like when you're tired of them. These weeks were so-so depending on the costume and model. It seems like I have the most trouble in class when a model goes to great lengths to pick out a costume and then doesn't take poses that correspond to the character.
