2017 Book based character designs
I decided to try my hand at designing characters from a book, as well as include other literature inspired characters I tried to design for a animated film or graphic novel. I tried to design the characters as they were described and how I always envisioned them.
This was one of the first sketches of the book I did. The designs weren't quite there yet!
The humans of the story. A pair of sisters and their elderly relatives who don't believe in stories of the people under the hill.
The Goblins. The king and his court of goblins who can "pass" as human.
some sketches of goblin citizen's described in the story.
My attempt at redesigning the hookah smoking caterpillar from Alice In Wonderland. I went for a more human look, and tried imply a mermaid-like allure to the character.
