Here Be Pirates...

Just finished scanning in some figure drawings from David Colman's character design class.  We were fortunate to have an awesome model pose as a pirate, so we could practice overall expression.  Below are my drawings (some darkening was done at home) – please click to enlarge.

Here's another little pirate-themed character exercise from the class:

Thanks for stopping by!

"Camille Lyon" - Form Exploration (final class project)

Here are some latest "Camille Lyon" drawings, which were shown in my final presentation for David Colman's character design class.

"Camille Lyon" is a basic story concept upon which I've been working this can read more about it – and view original designs (based more on graphic shapes) – in my 7/10 post.  Recently, we were asked to explore a different design interpretation based more on form (some alternate designs can be seen in my 8/14 post).

David gave some great feedback in the last class, so these designs are still work-in-progress.  I'll most likely revert back to the original graphic direction, and see how I can incorporate feedback from this latest form exploration too.  Not sure what I'm doing with the story yet...but it's been fun designing the characters so far :)

By the way, David's class is wonderful...I would highly recommend it.  Please check out the Concept Design Academy for more course info.  Thanks for visiting!
