|Well, I was 19 at the time, & I had my particular taste in things. LMMFAO. So here is another interesting render from a time long ago. This one is very sensual & still somewhat savage, almost frightening.|
|Wow, another old picture! This one was from 1995 March 16th. I was 18 at the time & man did I try to incorporate lots of silly things in here! Well, its still a picture I guess & at the time I enjoyed doing it & won many fans across my high school because of it's unique appeal. I was inspired by Luis Royo's book Malefic to create this image after meeting a peculiar street sketcher at the Rock & Roll McDonald's downtown at about midnight then. I had the damnedest time even finding the book years later because he was an unknown. But am I glad I met that fella. Totally changed my conceptions of things & my ideas only became that much more broadened by our chance encounter. Good times!|
|This is probably the single picture I ever invested so much time into. & I believe now it could be better. But the amount of details I did include in just the characters alone kinda' blows me away that I was able to sit down & render it. While not perfect, it was very good of my ability back during the summer of 1996! A fond memory it is.|

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
