Character Design Sessions 1 and 2

Session 1

The character I brought it for the session was Edward Elric from the manga/anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. I tried to make him look more realistic and I'm fairly pleased with the result. The character I was given in the second half of the session was Gru from Dispicable Me. I had to make him look less menacing and more cute by reducing the triangles in the image and using squares and circles more. I am especially happy with the drawing I did and I think I succeeded in making him look cuter.

Session 2

For the first part of this session I was given starship trooper as my base for some experimental character design. My final result was a kind of super soldier fitted out in a similar way to those in the film Elysium and the game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The twist is that the exoskeleton and helmet control the victim instead of magnify his or her strength. These mindless drones would usually be a common enemy and would attack in vast numbers.

  1. Just saw your Edward Elric drawing and I got to admit I should have seen this coming since we was talking about fullmetal alchemist and yes I love the series. The drawing is recognisable too however by far Gru looks amazing, almost reminds me of austin power's DrEvil.
