First sketches for new project.
Any project starts with a conversation. Getting a feel for what the client wants. Establishing creative as well as practical issues. Platforms, target audience, schedule and not forgetting budgets. Before I start any project I must have all of these agreed. It's good to be flexible and proactive during the project but without a clear understanding between me and my client at the start there could be issues.
This project is an exciting one for me as it involves both illustration and animation. Knowing I'll need to animate a character up front means I can design and construct it accordingly. This is just one element but the first few pencil marks feel promising.
