Another shot

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

The team like him, but the an­i­ma­tors say that after work­ing on Tyto the Swift they don’t want to deal with another com­pli­cated cape. I draw up another page of pon­cho-wear­ing mil­i­tary types and se­lect poses that show flair and character. I post roughs, but he doesn’t res­onate with any­one. I agree they’re a bit dry and sim­i­lar to an ex­ist­ing character, Roland.

It’s a bull’s-eye!

I go back and do another page. This time I dump all the pre­vi­ous roughs out of my brain. I start afresh, not afraid of ex­plor­ing some weirder, oddball ideas. Strange sil­hou­ettes and wild cos­tumes such as ghillie suits are the re­sults. Ver­sion two im­me­di­ately catches ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion. A fe­male sniper with a huge fur col­lar: she has style, character and is just plain fun!
