So how great was Temple Grandin, right? I wish my mom coulda come.
So I talked a bunch in class, as I like to do...about my project. And I have a bunch of character sketches already. There are 2 central characters, and when I started talking about the project, I randomly started calling them "Martina" and "Jane". The names really stuck, and now I'm keeping them.
I have been drawing Martina a lot, mostly just to see if I can get her look down with real consistency. I think I'm having a lot of luck doing so. She has a really plushy, round chin and messed up teeth and a sharply angled upper lip. I wanted her to look relatively attractive, but not perfect-comic book-female-attractive. I drew a million faces with all different mouths and noses and eyes and head shapes before I arrived at hers. Here's a few(I had to crop some out because my sketchbook is a little damaged from too much love)
So the one I picked is on the top right. I have been simplifying it since I drew this, to make my own life easier and for a more efficient comic output. Since Martina is obsessed with TV and movies, I gave her the Amelie haircut.. because, I mean, what girl doesn't want to be Amelie?
Living in a huge apartment in Monmarte with her waitressing money? Preposterous.
I have 10 minutes to finish this post, so I'm going to stop rambling. Here's Martina in a few random poses:
And here's Jane...she's a masculine dresser.
I am basing her on Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is the shit.
Seriously. Watch Antichrist.
I think for tuesday I'm gonna do some inked and colored character designs, and maybe some colored backgrounds. Yes?
Oh, and, last but not least, here's me and the love of my life:
