Character Design Challenge!

I’m doing these monthly design challenges with a Facebook group for kicks. You’re supposed to do one 2D character design based around a theme every month for all of 2015. A decent enough project to fill in the empty space between my own projects whenever I have the time.

So first up for January is PIRATES! argh!

argh, indeed!

Here are a few thumbnails I cobbled together while watching tv with the fam. Feel free to explore the hell out these guys and share them with me! I’d love to see what other people do with some of these.skethc01

and here’s a little exploration of one of the designs (Admiral Spaghetti Pants, to you!) which then became the unintentionally Ahab-ish/Baron Von Munchausen-esque weirdo above. sketch02

Enjoy with your eye holes!

The Papercut Kids and Facebook

Just a quick non-INKtober post. So these kids you’ve been seeing running around the INKtober posts and in the previous posts from a couple of years ago are characters of mine that I’ve been slowly building a story around. It’s gotten to the point that I should be deciding on the publishing route, self or through another company, stuff like that. In the meantime I’ve set up a Facebook page to slow roll this idea out to the world. So feel free to click HERE to take a look and like the page.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
