Pokin' A Fish

Here are the characters I'm working on for a short film. I want to tell a story about a little girl and her dad. I want it to be lighthearted, fun and relate-able. Right now I'm playing around with the whole line-less look, trying to push contrast in size and shape. Not quite sure if I want to go the full animation route or something more limited. 

I'm lucky enough to have a really amazing dad, who gave me quite a scare last year when he was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, we caught it early and were able to get rid of it before things got worse. But holy damn was it scary. I'm so glad everything turned out ok! I love my dad! :)

Modern Harpy

Another sketch prompt: Supernatural Creatures.

I thought I'd take it in a more modern direction and make her an athlete. Some kind of sprinter/flyer? Oh, and I put her in Nike gear on purpose considering Nike (the winged goddess of victory) and harpies were both greek myths.

Kind of an 'out-there' idea but I like it. :)

Also, this idea was inspired by a daily doodle! Here's the original drawing.

I knew as soon as I finished I wanted to push the pose WAY further.
