Being expressive err...Part 3.5???

I followed up my first design of Jugoya with a full body design layout with a play on the Japanese characters for Tengu. I'm still not sure if I'm gonna run with the laser scopes, but I figured I would give it a go just because. I'm still not 100% sold on my font layout just yet but I'm getting closer methinks. As usual, stay tuned...

Post expressive...JUST BLAZE!!!

I've been in a Japan mood since I've been prepping & working on the "Jugoya" character designs.
I've been digging through more of my old artwork and archived custom work and I found some pics of customs I did during my Manhattan Records days. These were customs done for an album release of a Japan only exclusive by Just Blaze. Shout to Take and the gang in Shibuya.

This is the version 2 character mock up I made for Jugoya I went to make him more "cartoonish".
Stay tuned...

Continuing with the character design theme, I'm showcasing my second set of expression sheets for one of my more mature themed characters. The character Jugoya is one I have had in the books for a long time. One of the few characters I have an avid backstory for, but never sought to develop him fully. I would need a good writer to help me on this one and someone aptly knowledgeable in Japanese culture. More previews to come soon.

Here's some work in progress. In addition to the "Ruckus" vectors I posted in the previous entry I'm working on some character rotations and expressions for some kid character designs I want to add to my portfolio. Hair can be a pain the the butt and it's common for most cartoons to have characters to face at a quarter angle for relative space arrangement, but since my character is a Whirling Dervish, I'm going to have to have him drawn at more extensive angles.  More images to follow.
