Snow White Characters

I worked with Green Screen Games to produce an interactive children's book for the Nintendo Wii. I illustrated the story of Snow White. These are some of my character designs.

The Game/Storybook is scheduled to come out this October. It's called Story Hour Fairy Tales. I will post a couple of the frames I created later down the line.

I did these using a regular graphite number 2 pencil in my sketchbook. I like to cram my pages with characters, that way I am forced to design the character to fit a specific space. It allows for some interesting shapes and poses.

The Evil Queen

Drawing Them Draw

Decided to draw the students drawing in class yesterday. These are a bit more refine compared to the Emergency Sketches below. I was more relaxed this day.

The head shots on the left are a couple of boys I saw on the Bart train on my way home from the city. At one point I thought one of the boys caught me sketching them, but it was never confirmed. They must have been in their early teens (12-13 yrs. I'm guessing). Their constant movement, along with the bumpy train ride, made them hard to draw. This is the challenge of sketching people in public.

I like to cram each page in my sketchbook. I usually have the pages filled, front and back. I don't like to waist paper. I'll turn the sketchbook in different angles to try and fit a sketch in.

Emergency Sketching

Took my mom to the hospital today. Not a very fun place to spend the afternoon, but I made the best of it.

Didn't get a chance to bring my sketchbook. I found and old daily planner stashed in my car, borrowed a ballpoint pen from the receptionist, and I was good to go.

I felt sorry for this old man, slumped in a chair reading a magazine, with his breathing machine.

The lady on the right has very interesting proportions to say the least.

This woman nervously waited as the technicians drew blood from her new born baby. I could hear the baby screaming in the next room:(
