I haven’t posted anything here in a while, so here is a character design of myself,
trying some new color techniques inspired by my friend Drew Hill and his work @ http://www.drewhillstudio.com/
Here is how i started.
First i sketched up a face with alternate noses and then the body. Once i did that i started to
play with the scale and proportions to get the body type more like mine and less like the kid from UP.
Then I created a silhouette to help define the figure and its overall form.
After that I fleshed out the flat colors, all in FLASH.
At this point I brought the flat colors into Photoshop and started to color/texture it up.
I photographed and outlined my glasses to composite them in then final illustration.
And after all that, here is the final illustration, I hope you dig it.
I’ve been inspired by various Minimal Poster Designs and of course Star wars, so I though it would be fun to put together some poster designs for various Star Wars characters using the binary code to spell their names.
Check out the new AJ site! I worked on the web design, character design, including the design of the first ever new character to the brand Dr. Drab, game concepts/design, and animation/animation supervising.
