GRAPHIC AND DESIGNS > CHARACTER DESIGNS
This page features a collection of character designs - half are my own original characters and half are re-designs of characters originally created by other artists.
'THE TALES OF FLORENSIA'
A series of character and creature designs for an ongoing passion project of a pitch for an animated or illustrated book fantasy series.
'TWEET US EQUALLY' WITH CEREDIGION ANIMATION
The Mencap Ceredigion Animation club were given funding to create a short animation project discussing personal rights in the style of Aardman's 'Creature Comforts'. We started creating our designs of random crazy birds using shapes. Then once we went out to make some interviews with people, we continued to further develop the animation design and make a few animation tests with our birds. The finished product, now entitled: 'Tweet Us Equally' is available to watch here.
'OCTOWOMAN VS THE MERMAID PIRATES' WITH CEREDIGION ANIMATION
As part of a little exercise with the Ceredigion Animation club, we had to create a few original characters to crossover with each other. I decided to choose two characters from my Mermay month gallery to work with and I was chosen to work with the character of Octowoman, originally created by Rhowan Alleyne. I was also given a task to give the character of Octowoman a redesign in order to make the characters look like they belong in the same world as each other.
