Minor film character redesign by funkyalien Minor film character redesign by funkyalien
I've had to redesign the chinese character in my short film because I found her design to be kinda...well, boring. My lecturer suggested I make her more punk/alternative style so I tried a few designs like that. It had to be done since I would animate her the next day. Talk about last minute changes ^^;

So my keywords (since they tend to help) were "nerdy punk skater". The nerdy part is probably more of a personally trait than a visual thing.
The two favourites were the ones in the center; the knee length shorts with the white t-shirt, and the long baggy pants with the Guitar Hero-inspired top (thank you, Guitar Hero :D ) The baggy pants design wins in the end as it works for both films that I'll be doing and I like drawing it :)

I like the knee-length shorts designs personally, but they're all pretty cool and branchaway from the typical Chinese stereotype, which is great! 8-)

Yup, I wanted something that was half stereotype and half very different. So there's the typical facial features mixed with something more punk/skater which I think works quite well :D

To me I think the long pants and the wristband works well for her. I guess when I think of punk/alternative rock girl, I think of the younger Avril Lavigne, with tracks like "Sk8er Boy". I would have probably gave her a long sleeve shirt, then a short sleeve one over the long sleeve. Still like the changes you did, very nice. :)

Yes!! Guitar hero rocks! I like your favorite ones too but I also like the one on the far left. I have always been a fan of long shorts. lol that's an oxymoron.
