Animation Project by nicholaskole Animation Project by nicholaskole
While I cannot tell you what it is for, I have procured permission to share some preliminary character designs from an animation project I worked on with a local animation studio! I was hired on to push the look of the cast into more colorful, weird, and hip places. Total dream gig :)

I had SO much fun with these...I've never ever done an expressions sheet for characters I've designed, and I feel like I leveled up! It's like a whole new dimension of character design!
Between these, Jellybots, and the Watercolor experiments recently, I've been really excited about the direction my work is going! I've always wanted to design characters for animation, and now I actually get to try it out :D

I worked harder on these than I have on a lot of my rendered, more realistic work. If you'd like to see a chunk of the process sketches, check out the whole set on my Behance page! [link]

WOOP!
