Different style concepts for Character Design course, all of my detective character, Fred Farroway. In a Mignola, Madureira, and Juanjo Guarnido. Instructor gave me a B+ on the colored version. Heralded my clothes and proportions, etc, but said she couldn’t figure out what kind of an animal he was, or what his expression was. I think the sketched version is better than the color one, in terms of expression clarity. I got too caught up in the color pattern and should have err’d on the side of readability.
One of my students said it looked like he was a Sparrow when I was coloring it. It is a song sparrow. The expression is one of angry indifference.© Copyright 2012 John Hill, All rights Reserved. Written For: Awesometania
