Last night I attempted to do a sketch of Spring, but it her head ended up too large and the feet and legs are all wrong, so I tried doing another sketch this morning which turned out even worse. I'm only posting this because they are THAT bad, and you can laugh with (or at me).
The only part that turned out awesome are the hands from the first drawing. So, hooray for me and sometimes being able to draw.
And so after getting frustrated with the cartoony characters, I decided to sketch from a magazine, and also draw some more realistic characters. I don't know where the backwoods/rural couple came from, but here they are.
I finally drew a character design of Gabrielle that I LIKE. Gabrielle is a character I created for a short that I wanted to do two years ago. I still want to do it, but the story is so screwy now that all I have as a solid foundation is:
a. Gabrielle lives in Paris.
b. She lives in a cute apartment with her overly affectionate cat.
c. She rides a motorcycle or moped (can't decide which yet).
d. She owns a little cafe.
e. One day she gets upset about something and takes a sudden trip to a small bed and breakfast with a peach orchard in the mountains.
f. Something happens in said orchard that makes the story... what? I do not know.
In any case, here she is! A design that I am finally satisfied with.
