Sketches of Choppi
This is finally the final her. She’s been through lots of changes over the last few weeks, and this feels the most right.
She’s more characterful, with more versatility in her expression and gesture than before, simply by applying some cartoon character design principles.. and by borrowing some techniques and styles that may well be very obvious to some (in fact I kinda hope as much).
She’ll stretch and pinch and emote rather nicely now, whereas before, when I preferred her inky simplicity, she was nigh-impossible to animate and wooden in her gestures.
Perhaps in 20 years, when I’m only 10% away from meeting the perfectionism that has paralysed me to date, I’ll be better able to be more graphic.
