What I have here are developmental stages of my character Harold for my adaptation of 'Harold and the Purple Crayon'. Based on my referencing and research, I have taken the direction of silhouettes and shadow in terms of stylization which is inspired by some of Michel Gagne's style from his work in 'Insanely twisted shadow puppets.'
|Over here, I've been trying to relate the shape of the character to|
existing forms like that of a stretched carpet, a chess piece and a penguin.
|After narrowing down to a shape that is a morph between the stretched carpet|
and a chess piece, I tried adding additional detail like that of the
feet and an opening for the eyes.
|Though simplistic, I'm just trying to refine the |
shape of the hands and feet.
