Amongst all of our meetings, reviews, pitches and deadlines I've been trying to get started on some character designs. I have two for each of the potential characters, aaaaaand they both look exactly the same. Go figure. I'm not even that keen on making them look as human as I have, yet I find it quite difficult to diverge away from that style. I have been, in recent weeks, attempting to broaden my drawing horizon by mimicking the work of other artists - as suggested by the WONDERFUL Steven Silver - and I'm starting to notice it in my work already, which is wonderful! I'm still a far cry away from what I'm really looking for though, so I maybe I need to look harder at more diverse work and try and break out of the very humanoid-characterisation area I seem to have settled in. It's still only week three so we'll see how this develops.
