Character Development: Brick Bouser
Been working on a cartoon concept for a year or more now with a friend and I'm wanting to get back into the character design process for the show. I've drawn this particular character several times and I feel whatever style I land on with him will set the tone for the rest of the characters. He is one of the two main characters.
For this design I need a character that's full of mucles, and empty of brain. For the muscle I didn't want to go with an Arnold type body build, but more of a World's Strongest Man body type. Lots of muscle bu with a layer of fat there as well. No real definition. I've noticed that the stomach on these guys tends to stick out further than their chest, so thats something I need to push further I think. More to come.
Edit: Added the above pictures "Dueling Bricks" and a face study.
