Sample Project

Sample Project - student project

For my project, I chose to create a simple cat drawing, which I made very basic so I could draw it over and over again without having to think too hard. My sketches are purposely very quick and unrefined to emphasize to you guys that there’s no pressure to create a polished final product, and that even through applying the components very quickly, you can see a difference in the character! Your drawings are simply an experiment – a visual tool to help you think through how changing certain features can affect a character’s look.

Here are my two final cats – the one on the left incorporates all of the “less cute” components, and one on the right incorporate all of the “cuter” ones.
