Sailgull turnaround by LynxGriffin Sailgull turnaround by LynxGriffin
EDIT: I've redone this particular turnaround, although I've abandoned the turnaround idea for something a little more dynamic, I think. Showing the character in motion and all. Also hopefully better painting!


Aaaand one more turnaround that I just now finished! (during class, heh...) That's more color stuff for the original story for Visual Structure. May or may not do one other character turnaround.

So this one is for the sailgulls, which I think I finally got to more of a threatening look. :P (At least, this would be for the elder sailgulls!) I was going to give it a purple-yellow macaw look, but decided that looked too happy/friendly, so instead I colored it more like a red-tailed hawk.

A clever combination of creatures with an anthropomorphic design. The interesting addition of a "sail" is what really makes the sailgull stand out in my mind, next to his ferocious expression. You have excellent designs for anthros, and this one shows a lot of creativity. The red tail hawk coloring added quite a ferocity to him. What I also noticed helped was posture portrayed by his proportions. He has a very tall, slim, alert feel to him, that seems wild and crafty.

I have to admit I cannot offer further criticism. His design came together very well. Excellent.

That looks really cool. It looks like it could be a creature to battle in a Final Fantasy or something.

So is the story to be a comic or all literary?

Neither. It's intended to be a movie, so I don't think I'll ever really finish it, exactly. I just need to get the production design/art direction stuff done.
