Still Alive

I've been too busy to post lately due to my school work, but I thought some of you might find this helpful. I've seen using a scribble method for the last few months when designing characters. You start off by scribbling on a page with no clear idea of what your final design will be. You then start to find shapes among your scribbles and finalize some sort of image. It's a cool technique inspired by concept artist Carlos Huante that helps me come up with stuff I would otherwise never think of. Here's some progress images for a random character design. At first I was going to go with a superhero, then a spy, but then I saw the long hair and thought a barber. He turned out to be some sort of self procalimed hair dressing superhero.
