COACH PROCESS

This was a character design I did for a Summer Outreach program where I teach. The brief was: futuristic high school for gifted skate boarders. My character is basically the P.E. coach for the school. I had a particular feeling in mind for this character; cocky, old school and very egotistical.


Here are my initial sketches trying to find some pose and body shape ideas.





Next up were some refinements and head iterations for my character.





Finally, the finished color design.



This was a lot of fun, really exploring more of my character's personality and trying to push it through from top to bottom and through his clothing especially.
