To more accurately understand the proportions in this head study, I first did a trace study then repeated the study from observation.

The brief for the Twizzler Princess character originated from the Wreck It Ralph movie. At the time I had not seen the movie so after doing some background studies, I continued with a colour study to tie in the character for a sequel. There's no real concept design in the background, just an exercise to show a storytelling theme. After the study, I created a colour for my character and background.. very simple using a textured oil brush.

I love Jakub Rozalski's work. He incorporates wonderful polish landscapes with a 1920's time period and some awesome mechs. He has some work showing his process on his Artstation site, jakubrozalski.artstation.com. I chose to follow his process of his "1920 - don't play with the strangers" piece. I completed to a point where I felt I learned what I needed to, so there is a bear and a foreground character missing from my study.

Studying Michael Hamptons book, Figure Drawing: Design and Invention I did some homework to understand Connections, Shape and Perspective Volumes. And in doing so, I practiced another 100 gestures to work from.
I started re-working my second ever character design that I created at the Imaginism In-House Workshop by designing a background. At the time of concepting the character, I hadn't actually watched the movie from which the brief was taken from. So, I watched it a while back and recently decided to implement a background for the character. Here are some value studies and the character to be reworked
