Narnia Character Development

Postby 8SilverSky » Jul 17, 2015 5:03 pm

It's been a while since I logged in here!

Anyway, I've been working on some Narnia characters over the past week or so and I'll be doing a good chunk more in the next little while. If anyone's interested, feel free to have a look at my past week's stuff!

It is impressive how you have managed to give them clear facial expressions, it is easy to see what they might be thinking about. It's not simple to draw like that! I like most the group image of the Pevensies and the Edmund sketches.

Oooooh, fun! I like how the expressions carry through in every line of the body and the variety of shapes you use for the different characters.

I look forward to seeing more. :)

Those are really sweet! I'm not an artist so I can't give educated input, but I love the animals' looks. For me it's a little odd to imagine the human characters in an animated style, but they are well done. As Mehinen said, the Pevensie group is lovely, and if that's Mrs. Macready at the top she's great! :D

Thanks so much all of you! It's something different I haven't done before, so I'm glad the idea is coming across.

I just posted some more. Not much, mainly faces for Susan and some Mr. Tumnus. I'm currently doing some studying of drapery, as I kind of need the practice.

Mehinen, thanks! I love drawing facial expressions! Totally helps with showing the personality of the character.

Meltintalle, thank you! I find shapes hard to find, but it's great when when I finally get them the way I want them. And yay, I did some more!

Adeona, yeah I was kind of wondering how to turn the Narnia kids into animated ones, so I tried not to go too overboard with the cartooniness (is that a word?) And while Mrs. Macready isn't at all my favourite character, she is very fun to draw! Thanks!
