Character Designs

So currently I'm in the beginning stages of creating the concept for my "Sit Stand" animation (basically during the 15 second story the character must sit/stand at some point)  - The class is leaning towards the little guerrilla rebel and the snake charmer (though he might actually be a sword swallower? Made him last minute and must redesign).

Also in the process of creating a traditional animation on some interesting vikings, which explains the village of vikings. More concept work to come!

I'm also realizing that all my characters have long lanky legs... gotta get out of the habit.

Fall semester update part 2.

So I also got some gouache last semester and attempt number one is at the top.  I really enjoyed using the medium, hopefully I can make time to experiment with it some more.

 The rest was inspired by:
mark weaver, a ballet performance, a sketch crawl, a DPSC event, and a jam session.

 So here's an update of some sketchbook work from fall semester (yeah I know I'm bad at updating)

I started to mess around with a parallel pen and I really like it, just need to get a comfortable with it. Oh and the first couple images are character sketches for my traditional animation class.  Ended up animating the big fluffy guy.  I'll post some more of him in the future.
