I liked a few of the faces but because of the speed we were drawing them it was clearly stuff i'd drawn before only much worse. When I got home i tried to think of some random characters that would appeal to children (and me) without having any story in mind, this realy isn't the right way to do it at all but I guess im just a maverick.
I like the Robot guy and the blatent Ratatouille rip off but can't think of any great back story for them, especialy not one that would get the kiddies pumped. Might try and use them as side characters but gotta come up with something more along the lines of the research i've done, think about school, best cartoons are set in school. Come on man!

So we are now working with live briefs from real companies which is similar to working with a live bomb in the fact that I only have a short amount of time before it blows up in my face. Therefor for the next month and a half im gunna be trying to cut the most awesome wire i can. They are all competitions and we have to follow specific criteria to please each of them, heres a list of the fat cats and what they want from us.
SEGA - Need a piece of work to celebrate the 20th birthday of Sonic, even though only about three of that boys life deserve any sort of congratulations.
FAIRTRADE - Basically come up with a new short to advertise and gain more awareness for fairtrade products, sounds lame but these guys have
had some pretty good adverts so far
DISNEY - Yeah that's right, Disney. They want us to design and animate a brand new character aimed at children aged 9-14 for a series.
BBC - Summat to do with Iplayer, need to make an interactive interface I think. Basically that aint happening
MASTERS OF CLOCK MAKING - I think that's their
name but these guys want a short film that increases interest in the concept of time and somehow demonstrates how it works???
It's got to be Disney right, not only do i love designing new characters but i have the mental age of a 9-14 year old so this should be easy. Was thinking about doing the Sega one but i would have to use Sonic so that's character design out the window. Back soon.
