Summer time, character concept

As promised, here are some concept art for the design of my character Thirsty, a cartoony looking vampire. I have modeled and alpha version of him in wax already but I will probably change the proportions and use a different material. I started using a dark red wax but it is too dark and most of the detail won’t show up properly. I did try some Super Sculpey I had laying around but it was too dry and brittle. I also tried some Chavant clay but it was too sticky for my liking. I will go to Tiranti tomorrow and see what they have on offer….. not that I trust them much anymore but well let’s see.

Here are my concept art, 2 hours of brainstorming with my TabletPC and Sketchbook pro.


And here is the unfinished alpha version of the sculpt.

    Hi Olivier,

    Thanks for uploading your drawings again…

    How do you make your larger images spring open in that nice way from the image links in your blog? Also, do the podcasts get done automatically? Are they on there for accessibility reasons?

    The drac looks interesting, I’m dying to see what he looks like when a thirsty mood comes over him!
