Here are some characters I've been having fun with for the past few months. This is the first color version of them. I'm not exactly sure where they'll end up. Right now I'm writing a short story for my portfolio.
I've also been experimenting with textures. I had an art professor that loved texture in painting and I think he left an impression on me. This is a photo of concrete I overlaid in Photoshop to help add depth to the cutout feel of the characters.
