i saw an art that called lance 'shark boy' so then of I thought 'sharkboy and lavagirl but lance and keith' and then i had to come ask you if youve ever thought about that because idk i feel like thats something you would like to think about

Very much so… :) I hope you don’t mind the redesigns though!

i just found myself using this random trick that one of my art professors taught me and i thought other people might like it!

other tips:
-at rest, the elbow hits the bottom of the ribcage, and the wrist hits the bottom of the crotch
-the distance from your inner elbow to your wrist is about the same length as your foot
-the length of your hand (from wrist to the tip of your middle finger) is about the same length as the distance between the bottom of your chin and your hairline

so, if you have a feeling that proportions are wrong on something, those work as quick gauges. like, if a character’s forearm looks too long, try to visualize their foot being the same size and see if that works. if the hands look too big, look at their size in relation to the face.

hope this helps someone!

Here are some of the initial sketches of our main character, Sherwin! Early on, we were exploring different variations in style and design to figure out what would best compliment the feel we were going for. As the star of the show, we had to find a way to make Sherwin appealing and cute while staying true to his awkward and clumsy personality. His design changed all throughout the development process, but his bright red, unruly head of hair has been one of his defining physical traits since the beginning!

Stay tuned for more original concept art from the film!
