Character Design: 'Jack'
This is Pre-Production Design work, suited to animation and comics
The character is Jack, the lead character of my Between * Wars webcomic
Above: Final colour art, face design. Drawn and coloured in Photoshop, on the Wacom tablet.
Above: Expression sheet guide, in Photoshop, Wacom tablet.
Above: Face/head proportions guide. He roughly fits this format. But face designs shouldn't be proscribed strictly by standard facial-proportions rules. They dictate their own rules (but consistently).
Above: Body proportions (rough) guide.
Above: Character Turnaround guide. No front 3/4 view—yet.
Above: Silhouettes. Good test of the individuality, recognisibility and strength of your cast members' designs
Above: Attire guide. Jack's 3 main outfits.
Above: Some poses. The one on the right is quite Shatner-esque
Above: Jack's mouth shapes sheet.
Rough 'Process Images'
Just to give you an idea of my working—and thought processes:
Above: "Hey, you?" Rough mouth-shape/speech-test of Jack. Drawn and animated in Adobe Animate/Flash
Above: In Photoshop. I adjusted the side view face afterwards.
Above: Pencilled proportions on paper (centre), to clean Photoshop black line-art (left).
