Character Designs For Flash

Hello, imaginary audience! It’s been a while, has it not?

I’m sorry that I’ve kinda fallen off with this blogging nonsense lately. it’s not that I haven’t had anything going on. Well, maybe it is, I dunno. Who can tell?

Anyway, I got some stuff coming through the turnpike that I will soon post. I’ve been busy with a new Rashy Rabbit comic and all sorts of dull freelance work that you, my imaginary reader, wouldn’t care to shake a stick at or anything.

Speaking of Freelance (but not of the dull variety), I’ve been doing some flash animation for a client that I have to assume would prefer to go unnamed and not be associated with this blog. In other words, don’t expect me to post the animation, no sir, but I don’t see a problem with posting some of the art and character designs here.

This dude is a chess “knight” themed superhero. Obviously, he’s not suppose to be a serious superhero fighting crime or anything.  My guess is he’ll, uh, fly around and teach chess n’things.

His working name was “Dark Knight” but I think the higher-ups in the company musta had cold feet or something. Now he’s called, eh- I don’t know…something.

The lines look pretty flimsy, but that’s flash for you. Speed is the name of the game,for this client so I choose to use the pencil tool and just go for it.

Honestly, I’ll post more coming up here – unless, of course, I get hit by a bus or something.

Later gator!

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.

    That horse head design is great. That’s a hilarious twist on the knight idea. Having the horse’s eyes on top of his head makes it really funny. I’m honestly trying to think of where I’ve seen something like that before and I can’t. Of course, I’ve only had one cup of coffee so far.

    Blue Falcon! That’s it! I knew I’d seen the eyes on the top of the head thing somewhere. How could I forget? I used to have a Blue Falcon lunchbox! (Man, I’d kill baby seals to have that lunchbox back.)
    Thanks! I hope I had a happy birthday too.
