Emulation week 1

This week in character design, we were assigned to emulate an artist with a style completely different from what we normally draw in. Since I never draw anime, I decided to take a whack at it. So I emulated the Korean artist Hyung-tae Kim, specifically his work on Magna Carta. I feel like I got the anime look down alright, but not Hyung-tae Kim's look down. So I'll be trying this again soon! It was crazy fun. 
This is Suzume. She's a werewolf that has a hard time finding her balance between the animal world and the human world. She helps a mysterious party of renegade gypsies by using her ability to transform into a large wolf, but feels like she is more of a danger to the group than help. She is proficient at sword fighting as well as tracking. She rarely tells anybody her condition and trusts very few people.

More animals and sketches

I like to draw people 3 times uglier than they really are. 






Week two of animal designs for Character Design. I chose a vain Golden Lion Tamarin monkey, an elk who's apart of a sled dog team, and the Scottish mythical beast Cat S├Čth.

Here are some shots from my sketchbook:






The character design assignment for this week was to create a story image with a hero and a villain from last week.

Of heroes and villains

Stereotypical heroes and villains, non-stereotypical heroes and villains.
