Hi everyone! Here's my submission for the Proko challenge, put a little bit of colour on to it if that's okay :]
Hello , My name is shivang and I am from India, I am 21 years old , I recently did my graduation in animation and kind of trying to enter in the industry. My main goal is to work in the entertainment industry as an concept artist or a storyboard artist and eventually I want to direct a animated movie or short film. I still need to learn more and want to work abroad were majority of the companies are there so it would be also helpful if you can suggest what steps i can take for that and also which not so much costly here is my link for the portfolio - https://thakkershivang.myportfolio.com/character-design and insta id -https://www.instagram.com/shivastarr_10/
Hey Shivang! Glad you're sharing. I did a small drawover below considering design, but I think just simplifying the drawing could go a long way. (I know while we're thinking about the character it's tempting to add every detail we're imagining.) Try to make even your loose lines describe form and movement. For example, the hatching on the shoulder could be tweaked ever so slightly to indicate the true curvature of the form. As for design, I underlined the words that stuck out to me so that I could be more intent on a direction. First, I wanted to simplify the mechanical bits just so that the image could read clearer. I noticed she has six eyes and thought that'd be a great opportunity to show how bored she is. Given that having six eyes might be a defining characteristic, I wanted to be mindful of different ways I could integrate the eye motif throughout her design. Contrast in design manifests in lots of different and interesting ways- but one note here is to contrast a simple and complex side in terms of silhouette. You can go onto contrast round against rigid lines or tall and short shapes. There's an inherent contrast with your character in that she is a cyborg with both organic and mechanical forms. The more we lock onto different ways to create contrast we can build interest more purposefully in our designs! Great work and I hope this helps!
