Character design from a reference

inspiration > scribbles > Final

One of the reason I shared this is cos someone asked me how do I get reference for Indian costumes. Well..to be honest I don't get a reference every time. Not exactly how I want my character to be. So you have to make use of whatever that you can find. 
The above picture is just an inspiration. The lower scribble has 50% of the photo ref. then I used that scribble as my next reference and drew him holding the vase. Also the body type was exaggerated to make him more chubby. Also the face in the picture was not fitting with this body so I drew that with imagination.

You have to use real life inspiration, anatomy, Figure drawing, Design principles and perspective to design a character. You cant rely on just reference.


Then I received a nice suggestion from a friend. So I changed the earlier Vase carrying guy into this guy!

A small five minute doodle...

Lately I have started a new practice. I just draw as the thoughts flow..no undo, no restrictions..nothing that stops the flow of thoughts. And results are surprising for me..not the best but i like these outputs!

Some marker faces!

Was testing my markers after refilling them..some shapes appeared and some purposely made..some faces based on those shapes! :)

BE YOURSELF!!


Tip of the day: BE YOURSELF!




These artists have always inspired me to draw more and more importantly to be myself! I have been following their blogs since I started my career in animation and still do! They all have their unique styles and their unique ways of approaching art! Hope they inspire you to draw more and follow your individuality..originality too! Happy Drawing people! 

Be yourself! Don't try to be some one else. He/she is already taken!
