Development sketch_KungFuGirl


In addition to working full time for Cartoon Network on Class of 3000 I also work on several projects on a freelance basis. I like to get involved in all different types of projects to help keep my skills sharp and keep me enthusiastic about my craft.... It also increases my strength in versatility as well as keep the numbers up in my bank acct......thank god for freelance
Anywho, I recently became involved w/Kung Fu Girl.....a revamp of an iconic character from overseas in Japan that is now being turned into a 3D TV show... I am lead designer on the project and although I cant show any of the actual designs I felt this piece could be displayed b/c it is nowhere near the actual look or style of the show. It is one of the first sketches I did when asked to submit some work.....I never cleaned it up nor redrew it, so forgive the crude line and pencil smudges..

Hope ya'll enjoy

Here is a tiger design I did today for Class of 3000, second season... He is such an incidental character that it is okay to display it for the masses....enjoy....

Expressing her character


Since
  • Class of 3000
  • is about to drop this Friday, figured it is okay to post some of my work for the main characters... Here are some expressions I did for one of the 8 main characters, Tamika. These always tend to help the board artists and the overseas studios, but more importantly it helps to discover the character.
