Another updated post....my idea for a short called 'Video store wars'. Haven't had time to do much for this project yet but am pleased with this PhotoShop image as a start. A new big chain video store opens up across the street from an older independent store and the battle for customers between the two employees escalates!! the first character, the clerk at the old store is a similar sort of character to Simon Pegg's character Tim in the tv show 'Spaced', laid back, skater guy who refuses to grow up. The second character is based loosely on 'The Simpsons' Comic book Guy and is fat, lazy and greedy for money. Anyho these are rough first designs so will evolve them soon!

These characters were the mock ups I did in PhotoShop in the style we wanted the film's human characters to look like. The marching band character ended up actually in the film along with some others and they are important because they tested the sketchy line and colour style the overall film ended up with.
I had a post on here called Bearenstein earlier in the year which i have now updated to include some more images and more story ideas!!!
He's still rough and needs working on but I'm liking how the idea is developing. In short the character is a little teddy bear whose been fashioned together like Frankenstein, he's made up of old bits of teddy bear and is a mismatch.
I have now created two human characters for the story, a little boy with his perfect teddy bear and his older sister who has lost her own teddy from her childhood and feels just as mixmatched as Bearenstein.
Anyway they are on my new portfolio layout so enjoy!
