Dweebs and Guards

One of the best parts of working at a company like FableVision is the opportunity to collaborate with talented people. I designed the above characters as cartoon extras for an animated web-series my friend Renée Kurilla is working on. The series revolves around a bunch of middle school kids, most of whom are pretty hip looking. So I figured the hallways could use a couple of dweebs.

These characters came out of some back and forth with another artist friend, Keith Zulawnik. We've been working on a math game with MIT that includes a story told through comics (previously mentioned here). Keith did one more iteration of these monster guards after I handed them off to him.

We all blog together as well at Creative Juices.

Love the color work on all of these, especially the dweebs. In my opinion at least 60% of the cartoon population should have differently colored noses.

Great concepts! Love your creature designs and the dweebs remind me of who I hung out with in high school, cool stuff!
