More Pirates!

Alongside working on my new animation "Meatballs" (below) I have also been coming up with new character designs, and it is Pirates (yet again!) The crew I'm building are more of a villain crew, and I picture them as the antagonists to my first crew. I will eventually get around to digitally colouring these then who knows, maybe I will develop things further with a one off comic.

 This is the Captain of the crew, and Captain Avery's nemesis.
This character (Amarog) is highly powerful and surprisingly fast.

This character is called Simi. He isn't the most skilled fighter, however, due to his ability to climb and his speed, he makes himself a powerful contender.

I think of this character as a total wild card, borderline psychopath.

Here we have the protagonists crew.

Drawing challenge complete!

Well I finally did it, I reached 31 drawings (actually I overshot the runway and ended up with about 33. I have posted the rest of the designs below.

I have also started animating my next project with the dog and I have roughed out about 22 seconds of animation so far and I must admit it is looking pretty sweet.

My next update will most likely be in a month or so when the animation has been completed.

Character Design challenge!

I am still continuing to work on the project mentioned in the last post. However, I have also decided to take up a 31 day character design challenge. This is exactly how it sounds, I will design a new character each day. I am already 14 days into the challenge and I have started to find it difficult, you don't quite realise how often you repeat elements in your designs until you do a challenge like this. I have found that I've had to go out my comfort zone and draw character types that I normally don't do much of, non-anthropomorphic animals and female characters.

I will post my progress so far for now and will post another update with the final 17 designs.

After some hours of work on coming up with a new storyline, we have developed the basic structure for our next animated project, currently named Meatballs at this early stage. We have developed character sheets for the main character (below) and have almost completed initial storyboards. Animation will begin within the next week.
