meet mabel!

So, it’s happened once again – I missed my weekly posting! Not for a lack of material, though  – my new classes are very challenging and I am already learning so much.

In first week of classes, our Traditional Animation 2 assignment was to create a a five-point turnaround model sheet. Last fall I played around with some basic character design but hadn’t done actual model sheets marking out the proportions, back or side views for Beryl & Rawrg, or any of my other characters.

Getting to this stage felt so official!  
I began by blocking out basic forms within the proportion lines – I decided to make her 3 heads high. 
I made a little perspective grid (based on info from my first week of classes in Drawing from the Imagination!) and overlaid the detail drawing on top of the basic forms
