New Jerry Face!
I’ve been researching tons and tons of toys from different countries (Japan, US, Korea) to redesign the look of Jerry. I made a couple of Jerry heads with a working mouth mechanism - but Jen, Aaron, and I realized that the prototypes didn’t look like a bear cub.
While keeping the human factors component of the bear, I looked at baby pictures, Dora, Stitch (from Disney), and others to understand the body proportions and different facial features. I even watched videos of Chris Sanders (main animator of Lilo and Stitch) and Glen Keane (one of the influential animators in disney) to see how they create characters.
Above is what I have so far :) More to come!
