I've been studying the heck out of Chris Sander's work this week. I love his style and approach to characters so much I went into some serious mode trying to understand his design choices, philosophies, and heck, tutorials! I feel like there is a limitation to how much info you can dig up on the internet (more, I need MORE!!!) so at a certain point I just have to get back to good ole fashioned "watched a movie, pause the frame and draw what you see." I used to do that all the time with The Great Mouse Detective, I loved that shit!
I drew these while listening to a Chris Sander's interview on YouTube. I think I'm officially obsessed with capturing this style more authentically in order to incorporate it into my own. Ah, exploration! I blame this website for the sudden interest in this.
