Character Designs for Acornhead

I'm still plugging away at my MFA project. Here are some sketches.

These are 3 of the main characters in my graphic novel. I am happy with the character on the right, but not the other 2.

With the character on the left, I increased his hand and feet size to make him feel like an adolescent who was still growing into his limbs.

I have continued to work on the middle character. I'm still not sure how he will look. He is the initial antagonist.

Here is another main character who's design I haven't worked on as much.

I've also worked on some basic shapes for a few secondary characters (parents of the protagonists.)

Nice shapes going on here.

Thanks, Will.

I'm really digging these. I'm excited this MFA is giving you enough time to work on a graphic novel. I know how hard it is to carve out time in non-school real life.

Too true, James. That's my main goal at the end of grad school, to have a graphic novel ready for publication.
