Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Character Designs

Hi, here are the Character Designs of the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. First is Mr Poole, he is Dr. Jekyll’s butler. I wanted him to look snobby and stern like he runs Dr. Jekyll’s house like a drill sergeant. Like he was from an order of butlers and its not just a job for him. Next is Utterson, a lawyer and friend to Dr Jekyll. He is trustworthy and calculating. Next from Scotland Yard is Inspector Newcommen. He starts investigating Dr. Jekyll after Sir Danvers Carew’s death. I made him all the one colour because his whole life is about the thin blue line. To his right is Mr Hyde. I tried to make him look disgusting looking and a bit crazy and mindless. Next is Dr Jekyll, he is holding the potion that changes his life. I tried to make him look the opposite to Mr Hyde, I tried to make him look like a nice guy and a bit of a push over. Next to him is Sir Danvers Carew. A kind old man and important member of parliament, Sir Danvers is the father of Dr Jekyll's fiancee and Mr Hyde tramples him to death. Last is Richard Enfield, he is a lawyer and Mr Utterson’s friend he is the one who reveals that Mr Hyde is Dr Jekyll’s heir. I wanted to make him blue so he looks like he is affected by living in foggy London. Well, I hope you like them.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year that’s all for 2008 thanks for stopping bye hope you keep checking the blog out in 2009.

Children of Lir Character Designs

Here are the Children of Lir character designs I have done they took a bit longer to do than normal but there where a few more characters to do this time.
Children of Lir is an Irish story. Lir’s wife Aoibh dies but because she is immortal so she will only be away for a while she worries about the children and they miss her a lot so Bodb Dearg who wants to become the leader of the Tuatha Dé Dannan which where Irish fairies sends Lir his second daughter to marry she become jealous of the children’s love for there mother and turns them into swans Lir is disgusted by this and searches for the children but can’t find them, they are cursed to spend three hundred years on three separate islands the curse is broken by a druid after nine hundred years and then the children reappear but they are really old and decrepit.
In the first image there is Aoibh she is the children’s mother then next is Lir who is a sea god so I gave him some scales and gills then there is Bodb Dearg, Dearg which in Gaeilge is The Red. Next is Aoife she is Bodb Dearg’s second daughter I wanted to make her sneaky and a bit of a schemer and last is Druid Quimlan when he rings the bell the curse on the children is broken I wanted to make him look like Lir had sent him to break the spell so I gave him blue hair and put a wave motif around the sleeves of his top.
The next image is Lir’s children when they are young, first is Aodh he is the eldest and wants to be a warrior next are the twins Conn and Fiachra they want to be hurling stars (which is an Irish sport) next is Fionnuala who wants to be an alchemist.
The third image is when the children are turned into swans I wanted to use there hair styles and there colours to distinguish them from each other.
The Fourth image the children as old people I wanted the two eldest children to look a lot older then the twins. Hope you like it.

Jack and The Nanobot Beanstalk

Here are some character designs I did of Jack and the Nanobot Beanstalk. I set the story in the future and the beanstalk is created by nano technology, Jack brings the Milk a Tron 4000 down to the market and he trades it for the Nanobot Beanstalk which Jack’s mother is not too pleased about. The first image is Jack’s mother next to her is the Milk a Tron 4000 then it’s the chicken that lays the golden eggs then it’s the harp who conducts himself and then it’s Jack as he is very lazy and doesn’t want to walk anywhere he has wheels on his shoes and a rocket pack on his back, he is holding the orb with the nano technology which becomes the beanstalk. I wanted Jack to look like he is not the sharpest tool in the box. The next image is of the giant and his wife who doesn’t want him to eat Jack. It was fun to draw the giants. Hope you like it.

Hansel and Gretel Character Designs

Here are the Hansel and Gretel character designs I did. I see the stepmother as the real villain of the piece, she is starving Hansel and Gretel behind the fathers back to try to force them to leave the house so I wanted to make her like a nasty piece of work and I wanted to make the witch look really horrible because after all she is trying to eat Hansel and Gretel. I wanted to give her a pet and I thought a wild boar would suite her, also I wanted to make Hansel and Gretel look hungry. On the left is the father who is unaware of what is going on around him next is the stepmother then it’s Hansel and Gretel the second image is the witch with her wild boar. Hope you like it.
