60's family

Something I'm working on at the moment.


  1. You know, I think one of my favorite things in character design is seeing how the animator handled inheritance - how a child will have this head shape, those eyes.

    I think you've done a really good job with this family! He definitely looks like their kid without being a carbon copy, and I love how the mom's perfectly round eyes are reflected in the shape of the kid's glasses, which he (presumably) inherited from the father.

    Of course, I'm just assuming they are a family and not random characters, because then I'd feel like an ass.

    Anyway, I can't believe I hadn't added this to my feeds when you showed it to me. Looking forward to seeing more stuff! :D

  2. Ah thank you, glad you like it! Shapes are fun. :)

    Hehe yeah, they're a family, that was the idea. I originally wanted to make the parents hip to the extreme with a super nerdy son who just didn't understand them and vice versa, but it kind of evolved into this perhaps midly inspired 60's theme from mad men? ;)

    Yay, glad you're watching, it'd be nice to make something for you sometime. :D I'm insanely busy in school right now but hopefully I'll be posting some stuff as I go along soon, hope you're doing well! :)
