When it comes to characters I really like those with a simplistic design to them. In my mind, with a simplistic character you can pretty much do anything with whether it be a stick man or a ball with hands. In mind of my character I want him to resemble ‘Morph’ a little bit, the big head and glove like hands will allow to save time when creating him Maya. As for his design I’m going go for the standard red shirt, blue trousers and black/grey shoes combo.

During my animation the viewer will be able to see what the character will be thinking. This will be executed in a thought bubble where a mini version acts out the various of scenarios that the character thinks off. As for it’s style, as well as what will appear in the thought bubble, will be stick figures. This is mostly due to the fact that I can animate them very easily, but also it won’t be very time constraining when making them.

In this clip of RWBY, you can see the character Nora over exaggerating about what will happen if they loose their match. This is something that my character will inherit during the end of my animation, where he begins to imagine different scenarios that could potentially ruin the date.
