character process

my general approach to sketching and designing characters or doodles

sketching & designing characters & stuff from Ian Abando on Vimeo.

in a lot of ways i still feel that i lost some of the feeling from my initial sketch. this is definitely something i would back into and refine, for example really trying to get that shoulder to compress up against his cheek, and be more specific with the gesture in his hands. im generally a work in progress :)

***i just noticed in the final sketch, i disrupted the visual narrative of the character by turning his head. my mistake there, shouldnt have done that D: ***

hope this is helpful in some way. on to the next one!
