Acro-BAT

Illustration Friday topic: acrobat.
Character design for Acro-Bat. I used this weeks topic for a character design piece although it has given me a few ideas for some larger scale pictures I need to work on. This little Acro-Bat was pretty much the first design I came up with (although this is the second draft as I overworked the shading so much on the first that I wrecked it a bit), he looks a little reluctant to be on any high wires or trapezes though.....probably due to his lack of thumbs and inability to balance when not upside down.

  1. hello James. I wanted to let you know that your link on IF is not working. You might want to redo it. Super cute Bat. Love his face... and outfit!

  3. What a great little character. I love his slouching demeanor and his none to enthusiastic expression.

  4. He turned out great. I like the idea of a character design for the IF word. Great idea. Great work on the bat.
