Gone back to working on the "Curious Incident" word-and-image module brief again. Have been redeveloping the characters to be a bit more 50s illustration /animation (being inspired a lot by the Cartoon Modern book). Here's what they look like at the moment - not final, but quite happy with how they are progressing.
Those of you with less bright screens will notice that there seems to be a strange shadow round each of the characters... that's because I didn't want to draw with black over my gauche painted stuff. I stuck some acetate over the colour paintings and then Indian inked over the acetate. The black works OK, but I want to try a couple of other treatments to try and give the characters more depth and texture ...
Christmas break from this Saturday - really looking forward to some time off to actually get on with college work!
