Hi all,

Hope you like this character?

Its just a sketch at the moment as I've just put down the basic shapes.

I want him to look very 'cute' !
Problem is i'm not sure i can do cute all that well !!! :D

Any thoughts or tips on this would be greatly appriciated.

Hey there Malcom
Erm... I think he looks more freaky than cute if you ask me! But he does look cool!

02 February 2002, 03:14 PM
I know !!! :D

Thats the problem !!

Do you think its just his facial expression ?

He's eventually going to have a full facial set up for animation thats why its quite blank at the moment.

He there
he does look a bit freaky
maybe he needs a curl on his head, like a babycurl

keep us updated

Yep, I think it actually is just because of the facial expression. Reminds me of that creepy Ally McBeal baby.
Would like to see this guy animated! :)

oooooohhhhuuurrrgggg Shudder !!!!

The last thing i want to do is that bloody dancing Baby ! he he

heheheheh.... yeah that baby was a tad rank, wasn't it? I didn't mean it as an insult to your work though - it was just the same level of creepiness.
At least your guy is wearing proper clothing. And I'm sure he won't be dancing, hey ;)

hey malcolm,
thats a nice model u have there. I think that quite large eyes are often used to make characters cute. I would enlarge the eyes by about 300%.


02 February 2002, 03:46 PM
Nice one Eli,

I'll do that !

Perhaps i should look at some disney characters for the facial proportions.

They seem to do 'cuteness' to the extreme !!

02 February 2002, 03:52 PM
just another quick point - cartoon characters usually only have 4 fingers, that might help u in the cutness department also.

and ur right, checking out disney stuff is probly the best idea.

any more welco0me of course.

I'll post the update in a few days. :)

yes, bigger eyes, a curl perhpas, but also try making the cheeks come out more??

Like that kid. Only if u wanna make it cuter I think u should make him kinda like a candy boy (a bit fatter -especially that flat chin) & less street-kid clothes would also help .... I gues.
