Character Design: Environments!
Posted by eyeofthehurricane99 on February 27, 2009
So here, we had ah-dults…
But hey, they all gotta live somewhere, right?
This was my first foray into drawing places for the little peoples to be… you can see the car here that I stole (from myself) in the design for my next short film “The Bee’s Knees”.
Then, I made a diner:
I’ve always loved diners like this. Long story short- my Dad used to take me with him as a kid to go run errands on Saturdays and we’d always end up at the little cafeteria they used to have at K-Mart back in the day (anyone else remember these?) They even had this thing- pop a balloon and the price inside the balloon was how much you’d pay for a banana split!
I just loved going there with him. I know, sounds corny- going to a crappy little cafe at K-Mart. But I was a kid and my Dad is gone now and I really miss him a lot…
That and this is based a good deal on my current favorite diner- The Cozy Corner!
If you’re ever in Chicago (or live here) and don’t go… you’ll never forgive yourself.
Here’s my favorite, perspective-wise:
I might do a couple of these, with more going on. Sort of a ‘sights and sounds of the big city’ kind of thing. Add in people walking down the street, hanging out the window, stores, buses, etc etc.
It’ll be fun!
