This is as far as my social skills go.

Ok, so I can't scan very well, but this is my last character.
Based on Mary Blair's work for Disney. Of course it had to be a princess. I think I've also been somehow influenced by Brave because I noticed afterwards she has ginger hair and a similar colour dress to Merida in that film...

Character Again

In the style of Mike Mitchell.
Really enjoyed this one. Illustrator is becoming my friend...

Character Number...I've lost count

I love Charles Burns' Black Hole graphic novel. So I decided to create my own 'mutated' teenager. She has  grown gills and some scales. By doing this piece of work I discovered I don't like dip pen.

Character 4.

This one is based on Daniel Clowe's style (more towards Ghost World characters). Originally wanted to have a devil girl type character but it turned into a teenager at a party, which I guess is more 'Ghost Worldy'.

Character 3

Today I got a sudden burst of motivation and wrote a crazy amount of my dissertation. Then as if that wasn't enough I thought I'd have a go at another character. That part didn't go as well as the dissertation. I tried to make a model earlier this week in the style of Pete Fowler, but apparently I wasn't born to make beautiful sculptures...they just fall over in the oven and then never stand up again. So then I thought I'd paint my character instead...and it was going well but then I thought, 'Oh, he uses black line, maybe i'll just...' ARGH, I'VE RUINED EVERYTHING. *Tantrum*

So yea, maybe I will leave this for a while and never look at it again. Maybe i'm over reacting slightly...maybe.

So, so far I have 3 characters done and I like a grand total of 1 of them.
I am on track with my dissertation so it's not a complete disaster. 
Next week I'll be attempting my Charles Burns and Daniel Clowes characters. There may be many tantrums ahead...
