The artwork and animation which you see below is part of a 2D animation project which I was set in my first year at university. I created a silly yet fun character called 'Cloudy'. As you can see visually she is a cloud taking on some human features. The key element if her design is her attention grabbing rainbow hat and her grumpy looking eyes.
This was my other possible idea to use for my Youtube Channel banner design.
Retaining a simplistic design of simple white lines against a light blue background with a eccentric hat to represent the personality of Cloudy. To see the completed Youtube Layout: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIV0H8EYjM2AUGEZQ_IRWpw
A Character Design Sheet. This includes a frontal full body view alongside her expressive facial features to further exaggerate her personality.
As part of the brief, I had to create a short webcomic showing the capability to tell a story in 4 panels. Cloudy is very relaxed and at peace looking at the sun and taking in the fresh air in her surroundings. However not everything is going to be perfect as she is accompanied by a flying critter who is also enjoying the air.
This webcomic explains the feeling of fustratioin and defeat when you finally are satisfied with what you wear or have. Feeling somewhat special and unique, that's until you see everyone owning what you have and that magic disappears.
