John Johnson

I decided to try a more simple style for my character design assignment for this semester. This is John Johnson. A reluctant world war 1 recruit who gets drafted off his farm in Nov. 1917. He is a good hearted guy, but he feels that he is just not cut out for the military. This is the first of 4 characters that I have designed for this assignment. I also have 4 environments to do. With how long this guy took me, I think I need to pick up the pace to finish by the first of March. This was sketched on paper first. Taken into Photoshop and cleaned up, Live traced by Adobe illustrator, Cleaned up in photoshop again, and colored in photoshop. It was quite the process, but I think I am happy with it. Feel free to critique. I CAN TAKE IT! :D Enjoy!
