Major Project: Initial Body Alchemy Sketches

While I was exploring the face I decided to move onto the body and tryout a few silhouettes. these tryouts will help me understand the overall shape of the character. Firstly, I have used an unusual approach, by using vegetables and fruits I tried to get the majority of the shapes on his body.

Then I moved onto Alchemy, and began to block out some shapes.

From the sheet above, I like a few things in a few designs, the legs shape on number 4 seem to be working best, but maybe the body shape of 1 or 4 works terms of head shape, I would say 5. The next step is to merge what i like in all the designs and begin developing the character as a whole.

Hi Ruben

I've been meaning to catch up with you to suggest you watch the animation below. I'm not sure if you've seen it before but Phil mentioned a possible Busby Berkeley musical number aspect in your animation. Take a look at the last minute of Weird Al Yankovic & Bill Plympton's "Don't download this song."
