Deer Head Guy

I broke some rules, I draw this digitally using Kyle Brush Mega pack. Also I'm working in color.

This character is for a music video I am working on and will be animated. I chose moods that match the moods of the song: Mischeavious, Curious, Manic. I want the character for feel a little menacing, but also a bit ridiculous. The idea is an out of shape 'yob' in a weird mask. I need to finese his arms and legs more and may simplify them to just lines.

I am still exporing a color palette for the project, but I like this bright red on a dark background. It is a bit limiting however since the character is basically in negative.



I decided to go back to this and use the materials you recommended (I had to order them so there was a bit of a delay). Here are some explorations of different characters in pencil.

Thinking about body types.
