This concept was created with some art friends where we passed around the paper and each got to spend 2mins drawing something.. This is the character is what came out of it.. So turned it into a waiter for a Star Wars bar type scene..
And also played with some head and horn variations

The brief for the Twizzler Princess character originated from the Wreck It Ralph movie. At the time I had not seen the movie so after doing some background studies, I continued with a colour study to tie in the character for a sequel. There's no real concept design in the background, just an exercise to show a storytelling theme. After the study, I created a colour for my character and background.. very simple using a textured oil brush.

I love Jakub Rozalski's work. He incorporates wonderful polish landscapes with a 1920's time period and some awesome mechs. He has some work showing his process on his Artstation site, jakubrozalski.artstation.com. I chose to follow his process of his "1920 - don't play with the strangers" piece. I completed to a point where I felt I learned what I needed to, so there is a bear and a foreground character missing from my study.

Studying Michael Hamptons book, Figure Drawing: Design and Invention I did some homework to understand Connections, Shape and Perspective Volumes. And in doing so, I practiced another 100 gestures to work from.
I started re-working my second ever character design that I created at the Imaginism In-House Workshop by designing a background. At the time of concepting the character, I hadn't actually watched the movie from which the brief was taken from. So, I watched it a while back and recently decided to implement a background for the character. Here are some value studies and the character to be reworked
