Recently, I had the fantastic opportunity to work with the good folks at Apperson to help develop Apperson Prep, a new interactive educational tool for teachers and students. I was brought on to develop a cast of characters for the brand, as well as for a series of animated videos. Along with character design, I was given the responsibility to build background scenes as well as develop a mascot and logo for the Apperson Prep school featured in the animated series. Go Ferrets!
You can see some of my illustrations in action over on the Apperson Prep website.
Over the next few months, I'll be talking about some of my illustration work that went into the designs of the two main characters, Max (the boy) and Marty (the ghost). But for now, you can check out some early, refined development work for these two characters.
The early Max was much younger. The final design made Max appear much taller and lankier.
Even early on, I drew the ghost with an addiction to coffee.
