I recently had the opportunity to do some "blue sky" character designs for an animated short entitled "The Calico Martini." I worked primarily on the character "Jasper" who is a dastardly little boy. He gets in way over his head when he decides to get into mischief after his mom goes out on an errand. After coming up with the basic look and feel for Jasper I passed them on to my colleague Jazno Francouer (a former Disney special effects animator) who refined them even further. They were then passed onto another colleague, Dan Daly (a former Disney clean-up artist) who cleaned them up! The images below document the process from blue sky all the way through to final model sheet and emotes. Enjoy!
