Monsieur Wingdown





Sorry for last week. Anyway, here's some concept art for my story; a magic show at center stage, and another hero charicature.

Wingdown is our main protagonist of the tower as the newest addition to the team, experiencing everything for the first time. Quiet and level headed, albeit to a repressed extreme. Wingman's voices of reason fall on deaf ears with his roomates, Flex and Whiplash. Still, his powerful wings befit his benevolent demeaner, as even Seera has a soft spot for the team rookie.

And no the guy this is based on isn't french, but the aviator outfit reminded me of snoopy playing the war pilot I thought it fit. Hopefully there are no crossed wires...

the amount of background information you have put into each character is astounding, it gives the impression you are making a film.

No kim, it ain't james, but it certanly looks like it could be, doesn't it? I think I'm going back and adjusting him a bit; maybe adding glasses to him. I'm not a very good charicaturist and there are a lot of skinny, scruffy white guys that were in grad 2005. Of course there were a lot of skinny asian guys too, so that a challenge I'm sure to run into as well...

miss_kimmer said...

so who is it then... there may be skinny white guys, but who of them had a beard other than jimmy? :)

I think your thinking of the digital 06 class; this is from a year before in the 05 commercial capilano year. James, Max, Van and Johan were all in that with me before digital. I don't want to specifically give away who these characters are by name; it's kind of mean if they're associatable by anyone outside of the group.

Sorry for the mix up. If james is wondering, it's the guy with the skydiver flash animation
