I'm struggling to enjoy drawing this guy. He's to generic in my opinion. More so then the characters in my first post. I'm trying to evolve him into something that i can enjoy drawing but that is also appealing to a 'target audience'.
Look at these drawings below and tell me what you think:
All these were done after work, so i was pretty tired and my mind wasnt working to well. So thats my excuse for the shoddyness of these drawings.
Here is my first attempt to make him more of a fun cartoon character that i enjoy drawing. I dont like it. Its butt ugyly. Nothing seems to fit or have any defining personality in my opinion.
Swiftly moving on. I prefer this...but only by a little bit. One of my problems is that i like exteme expressions to much. So when i have to draw something slightly subtle i get bored and agitated. So i have to try and discipline myself. This drawing here wasnt referenced from anything..and it shows. I usually use my own face when i refeence for the extreme expressions. So to me, in some cases, they have slightly more belivability even though they are more extreme then this one below. But,as a plus, i think the shapes here are working a lot better then the one above.
From here on i was starting to get tired. So my drawings begin to fall in out of proportion and different forms of expressions. I like the body on this guy. The head is a mess.
I like this.
So though many failed scribbles i started to get mad. So i needed to unwind by drawing this character in this totally wierd expression. I had a lot of fun drawing it but i doubt i will ever be able to...or be allowed to put this into my animation. I might sneak it in. Even if it was just from a frame or two.
So after venting all that rage on the previous drawing i believe this chracter eventually began to take some form. This isnt great. This, like all the rest is another scribble i cleaned up. But i like the body and how all the different shapes and forms work with each other. I just got to work on putting both feet firmly on the ground and actually drawing both arms in.
After drawing for so many hours. I scribbled down some ideas for a quick storyboard idea. If you can even read this retarded spidery writing then your one of the first who can. I need to look over this story again. I literally wrote it down then went to bed and havent looked at it since. But its all part of back up work.
