Freelance Concepts (Unannounced Project)

Some rough concepts for a fun project that I've been collaborating on with a really awesome band of guys. I wanted to evoke and help envision what they described to me in a brief. I think the experience overall has been fantastic, I'm not great with depicting or creating animals - it's one of my weak points, but I think this is helping me grow and develop as a concept artist.

My final task will be to make a full size sheet of all characters.

What I can say is that this is for a 2D animation, which is an entirely new thing for me - I've tried not to go into too much detail as it would be a pain for the animators, but it's a learning curve for me at the end of the day. As these are still pretty rough, if any of the concepts are passed then I'll clean up once it's good to go. It's also a possibility these concepts may not pass, which I'm okay with - the experience is most important and fundamental as growing as an artist.

This is the final line up, still under revision.
