Character Design Sketches

Posted in Artwork, Copyright with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by makingbelieve

These color sketches are for a project I worked on back in January. The project is still in development so the only details I have to offer is they are for a proposed video game. These sketches were part of round one creative, that was rejected. The characters were thought to be too “young” and not appealing to a more mature market (the games target audience).  In later creative revisions they were “matured” and made to look a bit edgier. When I can, i will post these revised characters.

The castle image was an idea for their headquarters, a sort of Justice League for their group.


PS.. Please be mindful that even though I cannot disclose the name of the client these images were created for (client name is same as proposed video game), the images are the copyright of owner and cannot be reproduced in any way, shape or form without permission.


Character Refresh

I was recently approached by Princess Katie and Rocket Steve, who are a rock band for kids. They were looking to reinvent the current cartoon characters of themselves, they use on all their CDs, website, videos and promotional materials. Looking to appeal to a broader children’s market, they wanted their current characters redone with a cuter, younger look. They approached several artists to contribute a sketch of their vision of the new characters. The posted sketch is my contribution to the mix. They are currently still deciding which artist’s solution will work best for their needs.

If you’re interested seeing their current characters before the big change, head on over to Princess Katie & Racer Steve. While you are there check out some of their songs. They may be a “rock band for kids” but no children are required to enjoy their music.

A couple of sketches I’ve been working on. One done digital, one done with an old school No. 2 pencil.

Random Digital sketches

These are just a sampling of random digital sketches I’ve wanted to turn into a nice full color, suitable for framing, finished illustrations… but have either lost interest in finishing or am slowly (very slowly) working on finishing .

Sketch of a Couple of Goodfellas

Thought I’d post more of my sketches this year and not just finished pieces. Did this one on the train home one night. They are loosely based on two “old school” Mafia bosses. Fuhgeddaboudit.
