So... continuing with my portfolio upgrade. I thought it would be a good idea to do a series of character heads... just exploring shapes and style. To be honest Im not 100% convinced by these - perhaps they lack direction or inspiration. It may have been better to choose a theme. At the moment they feel... well... directionless, pointless. Thats something I am thinking about more with my character work - story. Its all good being able to design a character, but a real character design is story driven, not visually driven. Sure the visuals and aesthetics are important, but they should be informed by the story behind the character. These heads have no story, and I feel because of that, they are lacking.
Well, we live and learn! For now they will have to do...
Hope everyone is good out there!
