Little Red Riding Hood Concept

This is the class I am taking this semester, again with Ernie Gilbert. It is a concept development class and our first assignment is Little Red Riding Hood. We had to take the well known story and design Characters and and Environments.
I chose to set mine in India during British rule. Red is an Indian bride, because Indian woman wear red on their wedding day, who leaves hours before her wedding to make sure her sick Grandmother will be able to see her in her Wedding dress.

Her grandmother lives in a dilapidated abandoned temple. 
The Huntsman
Modeled after Sepoys, who were Indian men in the British army during Colonization

Little Red
A beautiful Indian bride.

Character Design with Ernie Gilbert

This is From my character design class last semester taught by Ernie Gilbert. It was a fantastic class and I learned a lot! Ernie is a fantastic teacher. 

This was a self portrait exercise where we had to design ourselves and an imaginary friend. I naturally chose an anteater because they're awesome and they wear sweaters. Look it up; its a thing.

In this assignment we were to chose one of three books and design five of the characters.  Percy Jackson, Hitchhikers Guide, and a third which I can't remember, were the choices because they had little visual reference associated with them.

Percy Jackson Character Development

Grover, Annabelle, Percy, Ares, Tyson

Annabelle Turn

This was a similar assignment, but with books that had a LOT of visual reference. The choices were Harry Potter, The Wizard of Oz, and Oliver Twist. I chose Harry Potter because it was the most difficult, but chose characters that I thought could have been improved. I wasn't about to touch Harry, Ron, or Hermione.

Harry Potter Character Development
McGonnagle, Sirius, Tonks, Fleur, and Moody
For example; Fleur. She needed to be WAY hotter in the movie. That actress was so boring to look at.
She should've looked like this.
