And I know what I have done.
Guilty on the run,
And I'm never forgiven.
So, I have two classes where I have to draw a character that looks like myself. The other one for the self-portrait project that I did was for Storyboard & Concept, and this one is for Animation II. I decided to take the same character with a few changes because I might as well. I need to get used to drawing this character, and drawing the same character over and over again for all of my projects is much easier than trying to draw two radically different characters.
This one, however, just looks like me and is hardly at all like me in personality or circumstance, and like Sweet and Sour, she's also named after an attribute: Guilty. For Animation II, we have to animate a character doing things with a very specific emotion. I got "guilty," so basically, my character will have to walk, run, jump, and breathe in a guilty way. The design also has to reflect this attribute in some way, so I have her a prison jumpsuit tied around the waist and possibly some handcuffs hanging off of her left wrist. I'm not too sure about the handcuffs, but I think they could create some interesting animation possibilities. I also played around with the ponytail as a "what if" kind of thing, and I really like it. My roommate likes it, too, so it's probably going to be a permanent addition to her design.
idk about this one really... She's a prison escapee or something. I have no idea what crime she committed. Did she steal some candy? Did she murder someone? The world may never know. Nah, jk, I'll figure it out eventually. These are just really loose concept sketches, so her character will probably evolve as I go on with the class and animation projects.
I was talking with my roommate about how my Storyboard character and my Animation character could be twins in a show called Guilty & Gangly or something. Because the idea behind my Storyboard character is that she is the embodiment of my introversion, social ineptitude, and limbs. So much of them limbs. So, Gangly is what I would call her if I had to name her after an attribute. But yeah... a show where Guilty is Gangly's jailbird sister or whatever. I have no idea how that would even work since Gangly lives such an ordinary life, and Guilty's life is not nearly that ordinary. I wonder how the two of them being siblings would even work out.
[gangly voice] Are you ever going to take off your prison jumpsuit? You're out of prison now, you know.
[guilty voice] FUCKIN FIGHT ME
