Pipe, or no pipe? Yet to be decided! But I do quite like his posture and demeanour in this one.
Granny! .... Looking a bit authoritative, like she could kick grandad's ass, especially on the far right! Haha! Not the right look we were going for, but hey...I still quite like the character.
Here's an initial design for Charlie. I quite like the expression and how these kinda of mouth shapes and eyes could work really well in stop-motion. I'm thinking they could be interchangeable by slotting them into the face with a pin. This drawing was inspired by a phone-call to my nan. Let's call it primary research. I was asking her to describe her brothers when they were young boys, and here's what I came up with.
Next up for this week is to take these characters and develop them further, so hopefully by next Monday I can have some neat polished up versions and expression sheets!
