Here are some character design pages for Niko including a model sheet, poses sheet and expressions sheet. I created them digitally using Photoshop and my Huion tablet. They haven’t got shading at the moment but I can add that anytime, and all of them are in colour.
Although these were meant to be ‘rough’ sketches, I decided I was confident enough with my character to create some clean and confident pages that I can use later on. I’m really happy with the bold, cartoony style I’ve gone for and the workshops have helped me to really experiment with the character and get to know him.
I’m now confident I can draw him in multiple positions, angles and expressions which will be really useful when I start animating him. The next move is to think about his walk cycle and how I can really bring him to life.
