Creative Character Design

(ABOVE) Techno Image and Meindbender Team up to create this brilliant piece of moving art. UFCECÊ is a Gillette commercial reminiscent of the old Lipton Brisk spots from the past. Great character work taken to a new level by this amazing creative duo.
(ABOVE) “Gracht” is a very impressive graduation film by Utrecht School of Arts students Joost de Jong, Nick Groeneveld, Jeroen Hoolmans and Michaël Koning. Music & sound design from soundbreeders.nl. From the glossy porcelain shading to the stop-motion style of CG, they’ve managed to create a very unique and creative piece.
I’ve noticed a lot of really innovative character work coming from small shops or even student pieces like the one above. I hope that this trend eventually moves upward to the big movie studios. These are just a few recent examples of some very unique character design & animation work.
One recent stand out on the big screen is Paranorman. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend.
