Last…..I’m not sure when actually, we got given our characters for this year. I pulled ‘Obstinate Butler’ from the bowl of impossible things. But not only a Butler, he has to be.. Edwardian… Which is a freakin’ vague era, Victorian would have been so much more obvious lol. BUT since most Butlers look alot alike, I’ve got it easy, my other teammates(super happy with my teammates btw :woop: I was lucky. Sooo lucky!), not so easy. Ladies and Heads of the House, Maids n got knows what.
As I sit here eating Monster Munch with my left hand and trying not to get my keyboard greasy, I present to you my preliminary sketches. I took obstinate to be obstinant, which I thought was grumpy, unwilling, that kinda thing, thankfully I was right, so it didn’t put a kibosh on my plans. I want him kinda slimey and slinky, so tall n lanky are a must imo.
More pages below the cut.
After we(the team) decided on a style for our characters, we could actually get down to proper ideas, instead of random doodles. As we all associated Edwardian with pretty dark, dank times, we went for Tim Burton, sure he may be overused and common as hell in this course, but none of the other teams seem to have picked a Tim Burton style, which is very good for us lol. And Burton’s style isn’t terribly hard to mimic either, so all in all, not a bad thing getting Edwardian lol. Still lame that I could have got a ‘Dr Who Wannabe’ in the scifi group, BUT then I wouldn’t have ended up in an awesome team, AND its not ‘Dr Who Wannabe’ it’d be ‘The Doctor Wannabe’, being the Whovian I had to point that out, or rather, Tennant fangirl I am haha.
Anyways, sorry for the *slight* delay lol, been, preoccupied(?) lol. The little pudgy guy on the last page isn’t my Butler, who I need a name for now I think about it…. He’s a character we gotsta model for our weekly task, that we missed one week of cos our tutor was ill. And if you noticed the Bunny Butler on one of the pages, I thought it might have been fun to have anthro-whatever characters, animal-human combos or whatever, like Sonic n whatnot.
