Body Design 001

After deciding on the hair design it was time to move on to the rest of my character, after watching many youtube tutorials for advice i came up with a design and here is the process of how i did it…

First, i drew out poses in a simple stick man style, as i knew it was important to get a good pose done before drawing anything else.

…i moved on my on a new layer drawing rough ‘box’ figures, a technique i learnt from life drawing , this meant i could fill out the basic shape and space the character would take.Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 15.20.31

When happy , i created a new layer and drew the final body shape, i then removed the previous layers. I created a new layer also and began sketching in the hair i had decided on in my previous posts.

When happy with the rough purple drawings you can see i then did neater finer black lines as my final drawings.

I repeated this drawing process when adding clothes, i then added colour and this is the final designs.


After relooking at what i created i realised that the character did not look like a child as i had intended, or even a teenager, so i knew more work needed to be done.
