Rejected Designs



Here are a few designs I did for a movie I was working on. I used the shape tool because the "directors" wanted a "Cartoon Network" type look for this 3d movie. I had fun learning the shape tool at least.

Maybe you could make it a little more like Steve Silver's stuff...

martin wittig said...

Nice!! Really appealing designs!

Jeremy Bernstein said...

These are cool...looking good!

Knife and Onions said...

A Cartoon Network style? jeez! And what is that exactly?... sigh!

Anyway! I hope you can use these funny designs for something else!

In fact, I may steal the monkey! Hyuk, hyuk, hyuk!

(not really!)

("steal the monkey" sounds like a euphemism!... he he... "I caught him stealing the monkey!... disgusting!")

Jenny said...

Super-neat! You worked wonders with that shape tool!

Skribbl said...

Maybe you can do a Chippy and Loopus in this style??? T'would be nice!

Should I do a drawing, or a whole strip?

Osgood McSonogram said...

Pff, if I was a producer on Curious George, I woulda set these on fire and thrown them back in your face too! And stay out Mr. Original-Boy!

Skribbl said...

Nah just do a drawing. It would take too long to color a whole strip.

These are great looking designs - even if they are a bit choppy from using the shape tool.

Love that monkey!

Robo,

These are cool, but it sucks they're trying to get you change your natural style for a 3D show.

Give it a go with a new style for the strip!

tnyOvi!
The shape tool is that little pen icon in the tool box in Photoshop. It's fun! I think you'd like it!
Thanks Steve! They may go in a direction like this, but they rejected my take on the characters, saying they were too youthful.
Doodlers! Thanks! I think that maybe the directors thought he was too cute.
Chris! Thanks! I'm a big admirer of your stuff so that means a lot!
Thanks everyone!

Dead-on CNS style! I guess we're pretty easy to caricature...
