PD Character development

I have adjusted the style from the previous designs and paid closer attention to the the clothes the characters wear. I have often overlooked fashion in my work but feedback from my employer, who has a lot of experience in the fashion industry, has shown me the role fashion has in reflecting an individuals personality. So by paying more attention to fashion details, along with expression and posture, can help bring out even more personality in a drawing. However having a boss who has such a keen eye for fashion means that i don't always get it right. Subsequently all the previous designs have been rejected and these ones require further fashion tweaking. its a lengthy process but an enjoyable one. More next week.

PD Characters

Some line work of characters i am developing at Purple Dragon. At the moment me and Oschon are trying to create an concept for a children's educational animation series based around several characters who attain special powers. We have only just returned to concept art after weeks of racking our brains over story concepts, so these are just early stage designs. I will try post more developments in the coming weeks as we continue with more designs.
