First character post !...


#1

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 !!! :smiley:

Any thoughts or tips on this would be greatly appriciated.


#2

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


#3

I know !!! :smiley:

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.


#4

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

keep us updated


#5

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! :slight_smile:


#6

oooooohhhhuuurrrgggg Shudder !!!

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


#7

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 :wink:

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%.

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 !!


#10

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.

#14

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


#15

Hi,

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.
