So here are lots of wee sketches for character designs. I am happy with the crab at the mo, the first one was my initial shot (he turned out really gangly and war of the worldsy from the side) but i squished him down a bit lower and also did a few variations on him.
Also, after the peer review, people were keen on a starfish or a lobster to be the compadre. I prefer the idea of a lobster but the more i talk to people the more they want a starfish. Hence drawings of both. Here are my sketches anyway.
Here is a wee size comparisson too. Or something like that.
