Aching's Cottage Developed Designs

I have been trying to finalize the design of the cottage. These are two final thumbnails that I came up with! I like both of them but I think I will go with the first one as I can imagine it fitting with the scene more.

Tiffany- Final Design; Posed

Here is a quick posed painting of Tiffany!

Tiffany- Face Expressions

In order to bring my character to life I create a few face expressions in Photoshop. Hopefully they all look like the same girl. Next I will be creating action poses, and I need to put more time into the cottage design. So much more work is coming up soon! (:

Tiffany, Design Development

After talking to Phil I decided to add some stitchings and patches the the design I have also changed the colour of the socks to see what it would look like. Currently I'm modeling the head for the character (:

Influence Maps

I have created few more influence maps with the inspirations. I really love the impressionist houses and the mood in Anime films by Studio Ghibli. I have also looked at the houses from Lord of the Rings as they are incorporated with nature which makes them look magical.

Tiffany and Achings Farm Thumbnails

I made few more sketches of Tiffany and the Farm. After talking to Phil we both agreed that I should make the farm a bit quirky by for example making it lean against an old tree. Tiffany is still a challenge, she is a tomboy but still a 9 year old kid, so I cant make her look too cute, but she needs to have a bit cuteness in her face. Looking at my sketches I think the one that is the closest is the last one, I still need to change her hair and make it more messy. So far I think its going great and I enjoy sketching on paper, but I have to finalize my ideas soon! :)
