New concept of Ted’s new look and outfit. Before I get the “but he’s not wearing a ninja outfit, he’s a ninja!” statement. There is a significant reason why he’s dressed like this in this new storyline.
Tonight I made a half ass attempt at trying to work a little more on my new design for Jen. A few months back I came across some really really really (like 1990s) old drawings I did of some fan characters based off of both Darkwing Duck and Great Mouse Detective. Sure they were self insert characters… but I was 12… I didn’t know any better LOL. I decided to begin working on a project to sort of resurrect these characters into their own setting, and Jen Basil was one of the top contenders for re design. Her design has been on the wonky side since I began this project and I’ve not really had a fun time re designing her… until I logged off of blogtv tonight out of frustration of not being able to draw. I sat down and listened to the soundtrack of “Paperman” (so inspirational btw) and began sketching. Next thing I knew I was actually making progress. The first image is of her old look back in her hey day… granted it does say 2004, but I’ve been drawing Jen since I was about 9. Her new name is Jenna Bingham btw. The second is a collage of concepts I’ve doodled over the last couple of months to try to bring her out into the open and see if I could get a design to work for her. The last image is the drawings I did while listening to the Paperman soundtrack. You can really tell the music did it’s work on me.
