Sketch o’the Week

Clicky to embiggen . . .

A year or so ago I attempted to take my pal Stephen Silver‘s online animated character design class. Steve is an awesome artist and a great teacher, but I don’t know what I was thinking when I enrolled because in typical fashion I got swamped with work and had to give up on the class. Anyway I was clearing out some old sketches from the flat files today and ran across these from one of the lessons. We were supposed to do a (more or less) realistic character sketch of this model, then do three different takes on his face using three very different head shapes and from memory…not looking at the model reference at all. It was a great exercise because it demonstrated how you could maintain a look or character feel using different treatments.

By the way, I highly recommend Steve’s online class . . . so long as you have the time to properly dedicate to it.
