A couple attempts at character design. Because I am working in colour on coloured paper and then keying out the background, I have to be very careful with what colours I use. In the second image I used a light blue in some of the character details that was too close to the light green background. It shows up as transparent lines. In the first image, you can see I have a better idea of what colours I can use on the green background without loosing details.
Character ideas for Cat and Lady
The one thing I know for sure about this film is that it is about a forest on an escarpment. The edge of the forest comes right up against the backyards of a quiet neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is normal. Once you pass through the threshhold of the forest, anything can happen, sometimes bad things. The forest is the pivotal mechanism.
