How long has it been?

Well..I've been caught up with a lot of stuff..
I think the drawings below has been done in about 6hours altogether..over two weeks..

I really wasn't making any progress with the son character..
I realized I could't reproduce the one drawing that I liked, especially when I tried to make different expressions with it.
 I couldn't really control the proportions of the facial features effectively and I needed to simplify the character a bit more to give it a little bit more likable look
 I'got rid of the cheek bone and made it into a more smooth curve from the forehead down to the neck.
Well, honestly, I don't think he looks like a caveman anymore..

But He just looks cuter in this version. the last drawing is a little earlier try and his face have different aesthetics to it but I liked the overall feeling..
What I have right now makes him look a little too young......he's supposed to be a man... not a boy....
Still a long way to go..


  1. Are you doing this film in Maya? Maybe starting to sculpt him would help you out. More detail can turn out to be appealing in a CG character. If you're going with hand drawn, I agree, the simpler, the better! =D

  2. I'm pretty sure that I'll do it in Maya but I just want to be able to design a good looking character in 2D...arrrghh... I need better work ethic!!!

  3. I love all these drawings. They're full of a lot of character and are really fun.
