Dzien Dobry Character Design

Friday, October 7, 2016

The initial design for the main character, "Girl" of my new children's book I am working on. Set in Poland, a young American girl is left with her Polish Babcia (grandmother) for the summer. Unable to understand each other, they don't get off to a very good start. With each passing day, a bond soon forms and grows into something special, proving love can transcend all barriers, even language.

I am currently fleshing out the story outline. It's been a lot of fun. Kind of storyboarding it at the moment. After watching a few Schoolism interviews (highly recommend), Bobby Chui spoke with character designers Chris Sasaki and Shiyoon Kim, I was inspired and this is what I came up with.

This is only the beginning. any comment on how you think I can improve the design would be really cool, so let me hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So in love with the main character this truly shows your design skills. I'd like to add that usually the shade of face a tone lighter than the rest of the body so you might want to work on that. Great job over all.

  2. Story sounds very interesting. Subject of the story is nice. I wish i was a good writer to contribute in with some ideas.

  3. Thank you for sharing the post! It's nice to see the design here.
