Some more designs from Character Design class I found while sorting through old files. The first five are from September-October, during my 5-week scholarship in Cal Arts. The last two are back from August, I think?
The first assignment was to design characters based on a milk carton, a banana and a pear. And then, to design Halloween costumes based on those shapes. The second assignment was to redesign some Yo Gabba Gabba characters, that was fun. (The show's apparently pretty popular in the States? I'd never heard of it before going there!)
The last two are from a self portrait assignment here at my school. There were many more sketches, but they were mostly awful, so I just chose the ones I liked best. (I need a new profile picture. My hair's changed a lot since last year...)
