(Final Major Project)
BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO IDEA
I'm planning to do a short animated love story. It's about two people we all feel we know, stuck in a viscous circle we wouldn't like to know.. a mother at her tether's, and a father who's nowhere.
Its going to be set in the late 80's, and the working title is 'Wife Left Home'.
Have had the idea in my head for some while, and i'll delve into it a little more another time.
For now, here's the dad character through various stages of development.
As always comments / criticism very welcome.
This was my first page of sketches. I went for the typically brutish sorta look, I quite like the posture of the one to the right. It wasn't right though, I want the character fat.
Page 2 came out with simillar themes, however, I really like the one in the upper right, think it's pretty bang-on for the character I want - fun/fat/alpha-male/brutish/controlled. I want him gentle, but like he could explode.
So there we go. I got to a point where I was quite content with the 8th drawing above (also 5). I think he's got a nice build to him. Bit like a tubby young Marlon Brando, if that makes any sense.
However, gave it a going over the following day, and came up with a more concept-art sort of look. It's less realistic and more caricatured:
Tomorrow's plan is to get the turnarounds done. I think I prefer the first design, but we'll see.
