Mini-Project: The Reaper by Turtle-Arts Mini-Project: The Reaper by Turtle-Arts
Character design for a little mini project me a few other students were given as a sweet opportunity to get some one on one feedback from some professional character designers from a rather well known animation studio. :> Compressed these into one image to save submission time for here. XD

The prompt we were all given was that the Grim Reaper and his girlfriend were breaking up. Lol! We had to design the reaper, the girl, and a place for the breakup. So these were some of the images of my Reaper design. Enjoy!

Also from this project:
The Girl:
The Place:

Though obviously I don't own the rights the the reaper in general- just this version. XD

Out of curiosity, did you ever hear of a language cartoon program called "Muzzy?" This guy TOTALLY reminds me of him...

I was wondering why he was a hunchback for a second there, then I saw the bottom-right drawing.

Brilliant. XD

I like the one in the bottom right where he's shaped like a coffin :D

Yeah, I figure that what's he shaped like when he's just standing upright with his arms in. :>

Okay, I figured out the project now, but you actually have projects ike this assigned? Man, I wish my class was like that

Well it's not for a class actually. Another student/friend of mine got a hookup with a studio exec. and he wants a few of us to do this project to show to the studio's professional character artists. So it's not for a class, it's just a "for our benefit" kind of project. XD

Oh! Well, that sounds even cooler!!

I don't know what all could happen if the result is positive, but I can't wait to see what direction the project as whole goes in^w^

AGreed - totally LOVE it!!! The way it moves and slightly "transforms" its shap.
But it's so sad: who will break up, the girl or the Reaper? D'=
