Initial Character Sketches #6.

These are a few initial sketches experimenting with stylising our character while developing his face. Each design had started with simple forms before I begun developing details and combining more shapes to make the original design more complex. Within each design I wanted to include an over exaggeration on specific parts of each character, having a blend between realistic qualities and a toon style. Some were developed using soft edges where as other used sharp lines to define the face before adding in other facial characteristics.

From these designs above, sketches 4,6 & 7 stand out to me most. Character 4 has simplistic facial shapes, and can be broken down into even simpler forms when transitioning to 3D. Sketch 6 has an appeal due to his baldness (giving an emphasis on his facial hair) and also because of his nose shape, though my personal favourite is design 7 due to his face shape and his facial structure. I also believe if his forms were simplified further, his hairstyle could also provide for an interesting development when bringing our character to life.
