Redesign In "BLUE," 3

So, the new design is done. From its initial sketches, to its first design, to the current. Now, I have to animate the thing, or at least see how it translates. So I threw together a cape and hair move, with some stuff happening around him. Please do excuse the video garbage that pops up.

Redesign In "BLUE" Continued...

From his first design concepts, Bartz the Blue had a cape. He wasn't designed to be without it. Another reason a redesign was necessary, I wanted his outfit to work with or without his cape and I didn't feel this design did.

I wasn't getting rid of the cape, I just needed a stronger option of the character without it. The new design with more detailed colors with cape...

Redesign In "BLUE"

In the midst of everything else that's going on, I am in the middle of redesigning some of the characters in "Bue Dragon Blues." Not that I don't like their current designs, I just think some of them could be pushed a little more. Let's start with the main character Bartz the Blue.

First off, his design needed a little more to it. It had nice elements but that felt flat to me over time. I also felt there needed to be more consistency in his outfict overall. I added a knee pad and made a new belt buckle similar in design. Here are 2 of the more finished looks of this.

I was fine with the additions, but I also wanted the character to look younger and the design to be pushed a little more to a "cartoony" feel. This was more final.

This image was cleaned up and colors were added to bring you this...

More Scribbles

Been Awhile

Been in the basement so to speak, getting ready to unload a bunch of stuff. First I'm gonna drop off some scribbles and sketches I did a few months back.
