Clarence

The main character in our film, who I had the great privilege to design. Many thanks to Brandon, our director, for giving me this opportunity.

The final painting

My initial designs were a lot more cartoony (for both Paddy and Clarence). I wanted to play with a different style and I had been studying Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs a lot at the time...

Then he went on a sort of Jack Skellington kick...

Before finally coming back and finding his place in a more realistic world...

NICE job. I really like how you design for three-dee with all three dee's in mind.

Oh I love it. Kinda got a weathered old folk singer face like Martin Carthy.

He looks totally believable and endearing as the protagonist of your story. I can't wait to see him "come to life" in the film.
The process of his evolution is most interesting to see, as well.

I love that he can do that independent eyebrow thing just like you and that he has such substantial footings... like he may look a little underweight, but, man you'd better believe he can stand his ground!
