After looking over the model I’ve decided to change some things. I removed the father’s hair and changed the son’s shirt to red. I plan on making a very short animation involving these two characters. The focus is the bond between a father and his son… and make it as cute as possible. It’s a tribute to my own dad. I will start on it.. after I finish the penguin animation, that is.
Update: Really goofed up. Fixed some issues Weaver pointed out. Added some more refinement to the shading. The most annoying thing I did was draw the body using modules but I drew the stupid face as a symbol. oh well.
Story: This is a happy go lucky kid that lives in dark town hiding many secrets.
Starting a new 30 day project like I did with the 30 day portrait challenge a few months ago. The theme is characters. I thought I would start out with something simple. A young boy. I shouldn’t draw so late. I think it came out decent but it could of been better if I did a little more research and a few more prelim sketches. Maybe a more interesting shirt would help? I made the hands ginormous and had to shrink them down. I prefer the black and white version to the color one. Let me know what you think. Don’t be shy, I won’t bite.
Update: I decided focus on my portfolio with design and illustration projects. So I wont be doing this list for a while
List of characters I will be drawing during the 30 day challenge. Each will have a different background story, gesture, and I ‘hope’ I can give each a distinct personality.
Space Solder Male
Space Solder Female
Cat Woman (not the comic character)
Today’s portrait sketch is that of a young girl. I haven’t attempted painting a child’s head before. Since I currently have no good reference pictures of children, I went to morguefile.com and found this photo http://www.morguefile.com/archive/display/140295. There is a couple issues with my painting, but I am somewhat happy with it. I went over my time by 10 minutes. This time I painted over a quick line sketch I made first. I allowed me to paint much quicker this time. I even got some of the ears and hair started 🙂
Time spent: 1 hour and ten minutes
