Sick of these yet?


Jeez, I just realized I hadnt posted anything in over a week!
I've kinda been struggling to tell the truth. But at least Ive knocked out a bit of the actual story. Story is important.
This is another version of the same character from the last few posts. I'm trying to find an approach that i like but at the same time it's got to be practicle. Otherwise I dont see myself finishing this short story...
This approach seems a little more practicle to me and involves really lose color and minimal textures. I'd probably need to iron out a few things still, but at least the self color lines werent as big a pain as i thought they would be. Big ups to my peeps at work for trying to find a practicle way to color rough linework quickly. Thats you Kevin Baraber! Yes THE Kevin Barber of Disney fame!( You tried Bruno!).
No channels in photoshop, just quickmask goodness.
Oh yeah, I guess I should try to knock out some multiple angles at some point for these characters...
Once I figure out which design and approach I hate the least. He, he...

VERY cool... VERY different feeling from the last one. When I look at her, how do you want me to feel in regards to her personality?

Ha ha! That a boy Dan... you sound like someone who studies animation and character personalities or something...
Mentors doin ya some good huh?
Well, i suppose she's quite confident, strong and opinionated.
In this particular case I envisioned her being sarcastic and boastful as she humors someones comment...
Ya think I'm off?

Hey Javi,

This seems to be a mood lighting study. Would this be the palette for the whole piece?

Anyway, the colors are very strong in my opinion. Eye catching. A toss up which colors are better compared to the last one, but this one feels looser. I liked the red hair in the last image - her direct gaze realy intimidated, and images with direct eye contact give that "connection".

Whatever you decide, you can't go wrong. Do more if you need to - I can take more!
