Wednesday Art Post—character designs

Below are drawings that show how I'm working through the process of designing Honey and Luthor. NOTHING in animation is easy and that includes character design. I wanted these characters to look better than Wayne and Petey from "Calls of the Wild" so I'm putting in more effort in how they look. I also want to apply to their designs the lessons I recently learned. The goal is to have something distinct that is also easy to manipulate. That's why I tried to keep the shapes simple.

Honey has some Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Hudson and Lauryn Hill in her. I'm still working on giving her a decent hair style. I want something short to, again, make it easier to animate.

Luthor's bald—one less area to animate and color!

Basically, I want Honey's face to be soft and round…feminine, while Luthor's is more blocky.

GOAL: to have the finished (for now) facial designs for Honey and Luthor uploaded here by Sunday evening. I say "for now" because as I work on the animatic, their designs will probably evolve. But I like having something solid to work with at this time.
