I just finished a quick and very fun character designing gig with my most recent client, Orion McClelland.
To be honest, I had no clue about this kind of process to character designing until recent years. I’ve never created character silhouettes like this either — at least, not this exact process — but times like these make me feel thankful for all that figure drawing and doodling I’ve pretty much been doing all my life. I guess I do kind of create these sorts of sketches for all my illustrations, just not in such quick succession. This character line-up type process has actually been most effective for coming up with the best ideas though, in my experience.
Each individual character silhouette took me an average of 10 minutes to sketch and render. I designed and drafted for a total of 4 different characters.
Thank you so much for having me on such an enjoyable project, Orion! 😀
