Character Design - Finding a character

Here is a character I created for a children's video called STEVE THE SUPER HERO. ( I’ll post the video later in the week )

The first image is a rough pencil sketch the other images are from the final video.

I had done a lot of sketches before finally drawing this one. It seemed well suited for the video and would be fun to animate. I do a lot of drawings….most of them CRAP! ….some not as much…before I eventually settle on a design for a character.

There is a lot of fun and life in the pencil sketch - I think the biggest challenge is not losing that with a clean line and colour.


  1. Your style is awesome. I also agree with you that there is a lot of fun and life in a pencil sketch and trying not to loose that during clean up is a challenge.
