Color variations

My choice would be the bottom left, with the purple hair.

Here are a few color options for the bully character. I like the last one on the right best.

Here's a very funny looking bully character. I drew this, but I can't take credit for the very cool design. He was designed by ERROL BURKE. He is very fun to draw, because he looks like Angus Young from AC DC. I was told the 'T' stands for TROUBLE. Perfect!

DR. JOHNNY FEVER from WKRP in Cincinnati

Next up is Dr. Johnny 'Fever' Caravella as played by Howard Hessemen. Definitely not a morning person, but he was really cool.

Bailey Quarters from WKRP in Cincinnati

I am working on a pic of the whole cast from the show. It was one of my favorite shows of all time. Every single character was unique, interesting, had an individual look and was an archetypal character. This BAILEY QUARTERS. JAN SMITHERS was perfect in this role; shy, quiet, smart, but bursting with potential and ambition underneath those glasses.
My approach for this WKRP drawing, is not do to caricatures in the traditional sense. By that I mean I am not necessarily doing a caricature of Jan Smithers here. My approach is more like a character design approach. I am not trying to get a specific likeness of Jan Smithers, I am trying to capture the essence of her Bailey Quarters character.

I’m still working on her. I think I’m getting close to what I want.

Here she is…for now. She may be tweaked a bit before the final design is drawn. But I am pretty happy with this one. Now, onto the next WKRP character.
