Character Design Assignment 4 – Silhouettes, part 1

For the fourth character design for this class, we focused on interesting silhouettes. First off, we took brush pens and created random blotches that weren’t really supposed to be well thought out, they were just to create an interesting shape. The theme was “tribal” and I think we could to go sci-fi a little on it if we wanted.

Here are my initial silhouettes:

After this we picked the one we liked the best and we were supposed to go over it with white to add in some detail shapes, but still nothing too defined at this point. Here are my white passes over the shape that I liked the most:

After these white passes, we picked the one of those we liked the most and then created a finished drawing from it. Here’s the final:

I really enjoyed this assignment and it really opened my eyes to one way to go about coming up with an interesting design. I’m happy with the results. The final was finished in Adobe Illustrator.

The next assignment was similar to this and I enjoyed that as well. I’ll post that one soon.
