When I was coming up with the design for the character, I did lots of pages like this. Just oodles and oodles of shapes...trying to find a good idea. See if u can find the one I eventually went with ;).
This is the original design I went with for my midpoint presentation at the Academy. Kinda looks like a man in a suit. It would have been easier to rig, but I'm glad I went with their advice to use a more "sacky" type of body.
BTW, a lot of these pages are just copied right out of my thesis booklet.
