Character sheets

Hey guys it's me again. Rather than random doodling I decided I'd actually come up with some character designs that I liked and experiment. The first guy I was going for a Russian bodybuilder while his unusual body shape is influenced by the style of Al Hirschfeld (thank you Aladdin dvd). The second is a rather comical frenchman.

Once again I'm sorry if it's a bit hard to see but i wanted to retain the sketchiness of the original drawings. Let me know what you guys think.

This is Captain Shell, signing out.


  1. Hi Michael,

    These are really nice! Very imaginative designs. I can definetly see the Miyazaki influence. I also really like the hands on your characters and how expressive they are (especially with the bodybuilder) Well done, keep it up.

  2. Thanks Mike. I've stopped by your blog and it really means a lot to me to get a compliment from a CalArts graduate of your calibre.

    Hopefully I'll see you around here more often.

  3. Thanks, I appreciate the compliment. You have a really fun sense of design. I hope I get to see your own animation someday.

    I'll be sure to stop by once in awhile.
