Merveilleux Character Designs by Scummy Merveilleux Character Designs by Scummy
One of the final projects for this semester was a development book for a story. I created my own story line about a man, who as a boy was fancisated with street performers except had had no talent what-so-ever. Particularly He fell in love with a mime in Paris and years later the two decided to start their own company of performers. Eventually it evolved into a popular circus called Marvelous, or in French Merveilleux (figured I'd keep with the native language of where it takes place).

The concept of the story would evolve around the characters and their history. Each one would have a unique tale of how they joined Merveilleux, the it would be revealed through flashbacks (kind of like the story telling in Lost except without the connections and the insane plot behind it all).

I have about 26 pages of sketches. These are the character designs that I colored up. When I get a new version of my website created I might post the book. Updates later!

I love all the girl charactors with the animals, especially the one with the racoon.

oh man, excellent stuff. I love how you've played with the shapes of the faces, and those eyes and noses. The boy with the raccoon and the owl are my favorites. Great characters!
