Character Designs

Designing some characters. I post the line drawing and the volume study as well, for let you know how I approach the design when I work on it. 

As you can see, instead of starting with shapes, in these designs I started drawing the line, focused in the personality of these characters, just exploring new ways to work.

The second step, the volume study, is being really useful for me nowadays that I'm learning 3D modeling.

For the color and light, I tried to change a little the position of the main light in everyone, just to know how it works in every case.

Lady Marion is a character that I love very much. She is a vain old lady but very sweet and warm as well. This are two tests, with similar shapes and colors.

In this second test, I focused on the sweet expressive eyes.

These studies are really helpful to understand how light affects objects and environments.

Below you can see the process that I use to apply when I make these studies.
