These are some concept sketches for an old man stop-motion character. The first image is the character with comments digitally removed, the second and third are annotated.
My design for this character was primarily inspired by the Sandman character from the animated short film, The Sandman (Paul Berry, 1991). A Wikipedia article describes him as “A menacing, raptor-like human figure with huge, hooked nose and chin (echoing the shape of the crescent moon), feathered arms, and knee breeches with stockings”.
Digitally coloured version of the character.
This last one shows the character side and front. Unfortunately it hasn’t scanned very well but I’ve tried to enhance it where possible.
