Larry is the main character of my short film. Here's how I went about developing him. Much of the information is already on the slides so I wont be annotating too much.
Start with some simple shapes. Looking as different proportions and body types. Larry is in his mid 50's but I didn't want him to look old and worn out. I wanted him to look old but also as if he'd looked after himself and was slightly buff/beefy.
Staring to develop those initial shapes. I didn't like the pot bellied/podgy look. I finally decided on the shape in the top left corner.
Finding Larry's look/outfit.
