At Last

After many years of hard slog and tears and sweat, I've finally sold Boxhead and Roundhead to a great big important producer of animated content for television and motion pictures.
The sale required a revision of character designs.
Here you can see my originals on the top and the new designs on the bottom.
Let me know what you think.

I've always had a preference for original designs, but I'm sure you have to do what you must. Now is it me, or did you draw man-boobs for Boxhead in the new design?

Elliot Cowan said...

No, the studio requested them.

Emmett said...

I don't think the man-boobs work. Are B & R supposed to be brothers or twins? I can understand a studio making requests, but I think I prefer the originals.

Elliot Cowan said...

Part of the new concept is that Boxhead has had a sex change (he used to be a woman).
These little boobies are a hint at his past life as a female.

I'm not really looking at them as a revision of the characters, but as new characters entirely. Like you can't really compare them because they're so different. And I don't mean that in a negative way, by any means. It will be cool to look back after a while and for people to be able to say, "Wow, so those were the original characters that led to the new ones," heh. I'm very interested to see where this goes. Best of luck to you!

Elliot sold out! Elliot sold out! Nyah nyah na-nyah nyah! I knew you'd be the first of us to do it. Can't you even keep one damn thing that worked about the REAL Boxhead/Roundhead??? Where is your soul???

p.s. I am assuming this is farce...

p.p.s. checked out your VO demo... nice!

Elliot Cowan said...

It is indeed a complete bunch on nonsense.
I thought the whole thing was so ludicrous that it was obvious.
Sorry to those folks who bought it, it was really just supposed to be silliness.

And thanks re the demo - I used to to LOTS of vo work.
It's something I'd like to get back into.

IS THIS FOR REAL..?
I THOUGHT YOU WERE JOKING AT FIRST...
ARE YOU HIRING..?
FAMILY FIRST...

HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR..!

Elliot Cowan said...

I was joking - read my comment above.

I am however hiring.
I pay nothing and you'll get no credit and anything really good you produce I'll say I did it.

Elliot Cowan said...

Thanks - it wasn't even supposed to be a prank : )

GOGOPEDRO said...

Adorable.

Nice color scheme on the new stuff too...

Genius. If Roundhead had Boxheads beard he'd be a dead ringer for Michael Schlingman! (Although he would need ears)

Elliot Cowan said...

Pedro - hey you. The colour palette is very sophisticated, I think...

Matt - I think Schlingman looks like Bill Cosby (with ears).
