Here's some sketches for a character design I'm working on for school. We're doing our first group storyboarding projects, and my group is doing boards for a script I wrote! Each of us has to design a character, and I got the lead. We had to chose a style to emulate, so we decided on doing Foster's Home style since we're already familiar with it and because its simple and, of course, super nice! I'm planning on really pushing myself as far as I can for this project, so I want to make sure the main character is appealing, but also really easy to draw.
So I've sort of been trying to combine Mac and Frankie (and a bit of Wilt for the legs and feet) for this guy. Overall its a bit more rounded and fluid than what you'd see in Foster's home, but I really need to give this character 3d function and form since I'll be doing a turn around of him.
I got some revisions on his sweater, but this is probably very close to what he's going to look like in the end. Not particularly original, but I'm satisfied none the less! I really wish I knew how to illustrate him with super nice lines like in the show, I guess I'd need to use illustrator or flash for that? I'm not even sure haha, line work is def not my strong point!
Here's Anna Paquin in the style of Jimmy Two Shoes for Tara's drawing Jam!
