The 52 weeks of freaks project now is very much a part of my week, with it being something I look forward to doing and seeing what I can make happen. Im starting to prefer the simpler characters with less detail and the ones that are less figurative - clod, for example I think is a good development and has character - without having much of an anthropomorphic form to him - he's basically a blob with legs. I think blobs with legs may have to happen more, to me he's fun and easy to look at, A few of the others in here feel a bit contrived and laboured to me, especially the rabbit, really not liking that one. its very... "look at me"
Clod! Love this little guy. The last few weeks have been good and bad - but consistantly busy. Ive been working on a pretty big project for the city varieties which needed a lot of prep work so some of the freaks kind of fell to the wayside a little. I think this may need to become an exercise in innovative use of simple shapes and ideas rather than over hamming on tricks and gimmicks.
