So with the big website update, I've decided to show the various looks that TweakFox has had over the years. There were a few people who have helped influence her design and it's thanks to the input of these people (you know who you are hehe) that she has come to the design she has now.
TweakFox was created in 2002 in my grade 9 English class. I still have the very first sketch I ever did which I've included in this set (it's the far right, bottom pencil sketch).
Some of the designs below have appeared multiple times in my sketchbooks before evolving into the next design (you can see the evolution from bottom right to top left). Some were one-offs that I did as an experiment before moving onto the next design.
I was happy (actually I was really unhappy, but grew to appreciate hehe) when one of my instructors at Capilano University (when I was in the Digital Animation program) commented on how much he disliked the pink-purple I was always using for her main fur colour. I was annoyed at first, but now I see how much better she looks in comparison to her old self and I'm much happier with it. I remember giving my instructor a hard time about it, but I know now how important it is to listen and learn from others (those are two the words in my personal motto: Observe. Listen. Learn.).
Next year will be my little fox's 15th birthday and I'm hoping to do a little something special. I haven't really decided what yet, but I'm sure it will be good hehe!
Hi! My name is Courtney and I am currently working as a character designer in the animation industry!
