Unit 5: Animation- more Character design :)

Here are more character designs, after talking to Mike, Matt and Shahbir (Apologies if I spelt your name wrong!! :S), they suggested that I look at some rusted bikes and how the frames and wheels would look. So here are a few designs, I thought that I could exaggerate the frame bent and the seat more closely to the handle bars so that from front view it acts as either eyebrows or an old man's hat. Though the face designs look much similar to each other, I'm still trying to find ways to show that its old and partially blind at the same time without bringing in the glasses. Any feedback would be much loved!! ^_^


  1. When I look at drawings 6, 7 and 10, I keep seeing an old man with a big moustache - like this!

  2. hehe, Phil's right!
    It's good because the sketch immediately conjures up "old man" in my mind...and old men don't see too well (not the ones I see driving anyway!)
    I like no 9 best, theres something old, wrinkly and squinty about it.

  3. Wow, Thanks everyone. Will mix 6,7,9 and 10 to see if can come up something better!! :D

  4. Its amazing how distorting the wheel makes it feel so old! And as the others said the ... thats all I can say! it adds real character to your character! :)
