Two Characters I'm working on

Post by Grasshopper » Sun Jun 12, 2005 10:37 am

This the first time I've sat down and serious drawn something for a long time, so I isn't pretty. They're two characters for a story I plan to do. The first on is a sterotypical detective, and the second is a secretarial android. I welcome any and all advice.

For the android, named Noir, I'm still working on the body. With the face I'm trying to find the balance between and art deco-look and a utilitarian-look. I want to mouth to have a faint smile, but not as much as in the large drawning.
I wish I was better

Hey there. I really liked the way the android secretary is going. It reminds me of the movie Metropolis in some way. Which is a good thing for sure.

For the detective, I think it needs more work. The idea of making him bald is good, since it does bring a little toughness to the character. Anyhow, I'd encourage you to take a look at Bruce Timm's work at e.g.

I think his style might give you an idea of what to aim at. This is only a suggestion though, but I think you could for example emphasize the jaw a bit. Also play around with the shape of the nose and head -> sharpen the edges, make it more pointier than round. High cheek bones, a small crooked nose and a large chin should do the trick. ;) Hehe. Just have fun with it.
