Kids in color! Oooooh!




When I design characters I usually think of them in color. I knew I wanted Gretel to be super-blonde, so that when she's in the forest or in the witch's dank old house her head will silhouette nicely. Also, a lot of, a LOT of gals in old fairytale illustrations have white blonde hair like that (maybe for the same reason?), so I lifted the idea for myself. Hansel still looks like a jerk but I'll get into him more soon.

you are one of the up and coming character designers that trully captures a unique personality, instinctively in your designs. Your characters feel like they actually exist, breath, and have their own thoughts first, then I notice what great designs they are. Wonderful stuff!

Sounds like you have a secret admirer Brigette.. I'm working on a little something I'd like to show you- remind me next time I see you.

Thinking in Color is the BEST way to think!

I love these! It's true. Your characters have a lot of personality which seems like the hardest thing to achieve in character design.
