"Camille Lyon" - Form Explorations (in progress)

Hello!  I thought I'd share an update on my project for David Colman's character design class.  I've been working on some designs for my story concept "Camille Lyon" this summer.

For the first half of the class assignment, we had to focus mainly on graphic, stylized shapes for the characters.  These explorations, along with character descriptions, can be viewed in a previous post.

For the second half, the challenge is to offer new and different design interpretations based more on form – while maintaining the basic integrity & essence of the character.  Below are some of my form explorations...I chose the ones I thought may work best for the bottom lineup.   These are still in progress and pending instructor/class feedback, so the designs will most likely change again :)





Thanks for visiting!

Hey there! It's neat seeing you develop these characters. I especially like the form exploration of Nette that's on the left. She seems believable and the type of cool old lady who'd run a neighborhood coffee shop.

Hey thanks so much, Sunil! I appreciate the feedback on the Nette designs too! Hope you're doing well & talk soon :)

Little girls do grow up. I think you have enough material for a compendium. Seeing your rapidly evolving skills in action means you have to move forward. Letting go is hard, but one thing about art and expressive periods, they remain there forever. Time to create new legacies.

Thanks, Dan :) Yes, this little girl has done a lot of growing up lately. I appreciate your support & encouragement!
