Superhero Sketches and Thoughts on Model Sheets (They Suck)



Just some quick superhero sketches on my lunch break.  While I still struggle with the proportions of the character, I feel that the bottom drawing accurately depicts the style I've always wanted.  I really need to sit down and make a decent model sheet for him.  Problem is: Model Sheets suck.  I really don't know of any artists that particularly enjoy them.  Which is probably why I still haven't finished the flight animations.

My goal has always been to have a completely 360 degree turning character when in flight.  I need to have a drawing every 15 or 30 degrees for it to look good, but I just don't have the current will to try and get those drawings down again.  It would be the same as the model sheet.  Each drawing would be made on top of the previous to maintain scale.  But rather than rotating half way around in the same pose, I'm going to be transitioning into the most interesting poses I can muster.  Its a pretty big challenge.  

I might do a test with Construct 2 and acquiring the movement angle first.  That way I at least know it works.
