One Day Project – Character Development

Invader Zim

Invader Zim

I liked the concept of this cartoon. Aliens are cool. I also like the style.

Invader Zim tries to fit in with humans on earth but can’t because he is too different.

Young Ones

The Young Ones

Teenagers are awesome.

The Young Ones Illustrated

This is a nice cartoon interpretation of the characters.

Character Design For my Own Character

I tried to make my character look like a human teenager so I copied some visual features from a teenager I like the look of. His skin colour is the only visual aspect that identifies him as being an alien. I didn’t really want it to be obvious so I’m happy with the outcome.

I separated body parts out to make it easy to animate using techniques like motion tweens. This is similar to cut out animations like South Park.

For more texture I added shading to the character by using the gradient tool.
