In my efforts to begin to build a character design portfolio of sorts, I've been developing characters for my idea for a show about a planet of aliens that are engineers.
This guy is dressed for combat. Some Lumins join the military and shave off their fur.

Here are some more background characters from the Conversations scene. These guys will all be walking by the screen quickly, so I wanted the designs to be simple and not distracting. Hopefully they are, and still interesting enough to take a look at on their own.

Working with Photoshop brushes once again. The cafe scene is largely influenced by a scene in Disney's Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom. I've finally found a couple brush combos that I'm starting to like, but it's not quiiiite there yet. I've been watching a lot of Samurai Jack recently and dry brush gauche approach to the background designs is pretty amazing. So I'm hoping I can eventually get it closer to that.

I'm experimenting with the multiply and overlay layers to get a look that resembles my audio. Since all recordings were taken on the streets, no sound is completely clean and background noise bleeds into everything. So it made sense to me that characters would blend into one another and the background.
