hockey player notes

This was one of the earlier characters designed. As you can see, compared to the characters in the previous posts, this design is way off. I had the designers completely re-designed him, unlike the others characters which only needed tweeking. I hope my notes help anyone looking at my blog, as much as they helped the character designers on this production.

more notes

The designers were getting a much better understanding of the "stlye" at this point. This character needed very little tweeking.

mermaid notes

My notes again to the character designers, mostly stressing the importance of straight lines and curved lines.

my design notes

These are my notes to the character designers. The top image was not in the right "style" of the show. So I had the designer make a few tweeks and we have an incidental character design that fits with the look of the rest of the show. The designers told me that my notes were very helpful.
