So! Totally just changing my concept at the last minute before I go back to school and start.. you know... animating. Yikes! But I think I'll have fun with this.
These are some quick sketches of two of the main characters. I also have to design two birds, but they'll come later.
Thoughts so far: This guy is proposing to his girlfriend. He's dressed somewhat nicely but still not exactly right off the cover of GQ. He's a little nervous, hence some of the goofy features and unimpressive colors, and things definitely don't go as he expects. The girl is supposed to look sophisticated and kind of icy, hence the ideal body proportions and cold, delicate features. Physically, she seems to be in another league - this is intended to magnify his nervousness.
More on this soon!
