I've been sorting through hard drives recently and I came across some early sketches and designs from my short film 'Damned' that I thought I would share. I did lots of research and studies of real animals early on to help better understand how the characters would look and how they might move around. As I became more confident in drawing them I would begin to simplify their look by removing details I felt unnecessary to the story whilst gently exaggerating other elements. As well as these early sketches I've also included the final design for the billboard "character". It was painted by the super-talented Toby Jackman, who also did an amazing job painting all the backgrounds in the film.
