CHARACTER DESIGN EXERCISES
(Refer to sketchbooks 3)
-Night in the Woods Character design studies-
I did some rough little NITW sketch studies and looked at re-imaging the characters as human characters, focusing mainly on silhouettes and character personality expressed in clothing posture and clips from the trailers.
NITW characters and generally any artistic medium utilising simple art styles ensure characters are recognisable by the silhouettes alone, elaborating on this idea… (queue left image) … i drafted some simple hairstyles and outfits based on my prior cultural research to experiment with shapes and how that creates recognisable silhouettes.
MECHANICAL PENCIL FOX ILLUSTRATION
As a cool down exercise after sketching and experimentation i drew a geisha/fox type character, this was after researching traditionally japanese clothing and culture and was a way for me to experiment in how i may construct a character, though alot more simplified and/or simplistically stylised when it comes to actual character development.
