View Full Version : Weekly character designs

02-11-2010, 04:56 AM
Hiya! Long story short, there's a group over at DeviantART that's doing character design challenges every week. Basically, the challenge for the first few weeks is to design characters based on random shapes that the group leader creates, and then choose one of the five characters and make a full-body portrait of 'em. Here's what I've come up with so far:

Really cool and distinct, especially memorable is the first one. Intriguing head shape.

These characters are not only quite credible and professional (they may also be the most stunning and synthetic caricatures of real people), but have also a flavour reminding the greatest illustrators and cartoonists of some decades ago and their brilliant and talented styles ...
Excellent and congratulations!

Thank you all so much for the kind words! Being a newbie to the art world, it means a lot to me!

These are really cool Garfieldo! What a great way to create new interesting and original characters. Nicely illustrated as well!!! There is an illustration group I belong to on Flickr called "Illustrapedia". They have monthly challenges on a specific theme. Pretty layed back but worth checking out if you enjoy that kind of thing.:):)

At another forum I attend,there's always a monthly scribble;
Just a line in random form/shape and you can create from it as you wish but the form of the line must be noticeable in the design.
Maybe a challenge to try out overhere
