Hello there! It's been a loooong while since I posted in the critique center. These are some character designs I made last week. They're my first attempt towards building a portfolio.
I know I have a lot to improve on anatomy but that area is covered. I'm working towards a better understanding of the human body every day at school in my Anatomy class and also life drawing sessions.
Where I'm a little lost is in character design and gesture. I know I've got a slight grasp of both but I'd really like to push those areas even more, since it's where the "soul" is in my opinion.
Another question I have is what can I do to make the layout more professional. Should I do turnarounds and several expressions for every character? Is that the usual in character design portfolios? I've seen a lot of people do that but I feel that doing that for every character would make the portfolio boring to read.
Aside from these questions, any other critiques are very much welcome. Rip them apart!
