Latest Demo Sketches

Often when I work with students I spend  much of my time going over their art or explaining methods they can use to make further progress with what they're doing. Then I find a window usually by request to create some demo art and such was the case today. The blue line sketches are from my Character Design 1 class at an onsite session in Burbank showcasing ways to come up with effective concepts utilizing very basic shapes. The color sketch was created in Photoshop very quickly for an online session. I had fun coming up with an alternative version of Shrek.

Thank you! Also I want you to see this animated crossover of Crash here:https://m.youtube.com/?reload=14&rdm=2gd6ab6f2#/watch?v=mRq_8ZEP5vE
I think it's a wonderful animation and the music really fits! Also, the N Sane Trilogy is going to be released in June on the 30th if I'm correct, so it won't be long before Craah is back in the store shelves!

Your Shrek looks a friendly version of the one from the original novel. Hey Charles would ever be interested on Crash Bandicoot tv show. cause someone made a video of the intro of and style of gravity falls with Crash Bandicoot characters that I think you should check out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRq_8ZEP5vE&index=2&list=LLgKFeUCMNGx5MtQoHXe2saw

Hello Hazman. The Crash cartoon is well done. A fun video. They did a really good job and I like the design style and the animation as well. Thanks for posting the link.

Vanilla Latte the link isn't working. I'm not getting anything but a generic YouTube page. Check it out and try again if you would please. Yes indeed! Exciting times as Crash is coming back to the market. Fans deserve it. They've been very loyal and patient.
