Chicken and Fox Turn Around Sheets


Chicken Designs

I worked out my chicken design the same way, using simple shapes. I experimented with how I could characterise a chicken and keep the traits so it’s recognisable as a chicken still. I looked at Donald Duck to see how he’s shaped to stand up straight. I liked the way he’s slightly humanised and took this into my own work.


Fox Designs

I first started out with simple shapes, trying to break down the character. I then used fruit to experiment with the shapes I could play with, for my fox character. It was inspired by fox images and Tom from Tom and Jerry.


Three variations of lighting


Action Line (3 Minutes per pose)

I found these difficult at first but as I kept going, it got easier to understand. I found myself finishing the pose faster during the end of the second video. I used New Masters Academy’s playlist and selected two videos to use as reference.




Second Shaded Ball

I shaded this ball using the same technique for the last one. It was more tricky as it had specifically shaped shadows and highlights.ball-2
