Below is a character design I made as part of the 45-50 assignment. We basically have to make a character and background in 6 weeks, taking it from basic sketches to full 3D render in that time.
Here is my turn around for the character.
The style guide was the work of famous american puppeteer Jim Henson who created such shows as The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and the darker, more mature films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
The character was supposed to be a "mediterranean villager" and mine became the Inn/barkeeper of the town.
