Just for fun, I thought I would re-design the four main characters from the film 'Reservoir Dogs'. There was two things I wanted to achieve with this project and the first was: I didn't want to take four random dogs and dress them up in suits. Since these characters are based on real actors, the designs should resemble them. Secondly, (but more importantly) I wanted to create appealing designs.
Below are some of the roughs.
This was actually the first sheet I did. Just trying to figure out ways to contrast each character in thier most basic shapes. Note the differences in height, waist, shoulders and various head shapes. I also was looking though dog books at this time and figured out what breed of dogs each character should be.
