Characters and a New Method





So, yesterday, I was bored, I didn't feel like doing school work so I decided to do something else involving drawing...other schoolwork. Heh...sorta. I used a character design assignment as a basis of creating four characters. The clothing I tried to keep mundane and simple as that's what the assignment was, but I added some accessories which I wasn't supposed to - I think I'll just hand this in as an extra. These were done in Photoshop with nothing but the Polygonal lasso, paintbrush and paintbucket. I find this exercise really helps as it allows you to break down a character into its simple shapes and the limit to doing point to point forces you to take chances and try new things, I highly recommend it to anyone. More to come in this fashion soon...working on some designs as we speak...screw sleep.
