Character Sketches

Post by gjsmo on Thu Aug 25, 2011 3:21 am

Just finished some sketches of Brainy, Rhonda, Lorenzo, Grandpa and Dino Spumoni.

http://gjsmo.deviantart.com/art/Hey-Arnold-Character-Sketches-254869152

Tell me what you think. I really like the drawing of Dino.

EDIT: Added Stinky - and put the characters back in the original (on-page) layout.

Brainy, Helga, Lorenzo, and Phil are PERFECT! Great job! Rhonda's face is a liiiiittle too round in the colored drawing-- Rhonda's head is more horizontal oval-shaped than circular. As for Dino, you got the expression perfect! But the chin is a little off. Try checking out some still reference screenshots, like the one on the Hey Arnold Wiki-- there's a pretty good one there!

You're really getting good! Keep it up! ^_^

Well thank you. Very much.

BTW,

I'm working on a full-page (9"x12") Dino poster - I love music like that (though of course that means Jim Lang - he's awesome). Also, a better drawing of Arnold's room.

I only wanted to draw Rhonda twice (even though she's cute when she's not stuck-up)... I needed to go to bed, and her face is rather "open" - there's very little to make visual references from, if you know what I mean, so it's easy to draw everything completely correct, but in the wrong spot...

I've got a drawing of Miriam which I might post.

I inked the drawing here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/259866668/

I'm going to start inking everything now - I think this looks A LOT better.

So... more drawings. All inked this time - I (almost) can't believe how much this cleans up the drawings. If I just watercolored it, they would look just like the originals.

Well thank you!

Just so you know... I can't really draw expressions that well Embarassed I have to redraw what I see.

I also haven't tried anything other than a 3/4 view of any of the characters (except Arnold). I should, though. As I said on DA, any specific ideas for a Eugene/Sheena poster a welcome.

Oh... I need to get to work on that "think different" poster, Mega.

That's okay! You'll get better. Just start studying what the characters look like when they're happy, sad, mad, etc.! You'll start to notice patterns in the ways their eyes narrow, their mouths stretch, stuff like that!

Haha, don't worry about it. Take as much time as you need! Smile And no one's ever nicknamed me that before, LOL.
