a different Foot


Here is a preliminary design of Bigfoot for Class of 3000. He only shows up in the bg in one episode so since it is a minor incidental felt it was okay to post. I really tried to come up w/a new take on a Sasquatch. Not your typical, generic, mundane Harry and The Hendersons giant hairy beast who looks human like. I just tried to address one thing, big feet.
Chen-Yi Chang once said that you need to respect your subject, don't just rely on your imagination or else your characters will always end up looking the same. So I tried to be atypical in my thought process. Marcelo Vignali also taught me to not refer too to other designs b/c you want to create something new, close the book and give it your own take.

Hope ya'll like my approach here.

A field sketch while out @ my folks' place in Agoura Hills.... So many horses around there but one corral had a burro in the mix, and such a little one,had to sketch him.
