Vote For Your Favorite Characters

I actually plan to explore some of these ideas, so your feedback now will determine my course this coming year (storyboards, animation, &  maybe even sculptures). Click on the picture to view the original post for more information, and click my signature a the top of the blog to return to this page. Please vote for your top 3 of the character ideas below by either commenting on facebook or at the bottom of this post. Anonymous comments are enabled.

Voting will end January 17th and the "winners" will then be posted.

Also, as some news ... my demo reel ranked well on the YouAnimator.com search engine, so my "last sprint" will hopefully help me professionally as well!

  1. My top three are 8, 21, and 23.

    I think 21 has potential for a great silent animated story, and the character designs in the shapes on 23 and 8 are just great!

  2. Best Story potential -- 16 & 19 There is inherent tension and struggle built into the concept with contrasting figures.

    Best Character Design (visual standpoint 21 & 25) Solid rhythms, size relationships, and form language for each personality with strong appeal. Now that I say that 16 looks good but I don't know how dynamically she would move.

  3. I vote for 20 and 28.

  4. 6, 13, and 16 - My top 3 choices. Great work Scott, one can see you had fun during this mental workout. I'm excited to see where you take this. -Nate S.
