Jack O – Model Sheet

Model sheets are important for maintaining consistency in a character’s design. By creating a front, side and 3/4 view, a five-position model sheet can be made. Just copy and paste the front and 3/4 views, then convert them to 3/4 back and back views by flipping them and making slight modifications to the characters clothing etc. A good silhouette works forward or backward. It’s a little bit like the “young woman or old crone” optical illusion. Imagine the image of Jack in the bottom left corner as if he was running away instead of toward the viewer. By changing a few lines it works just as well as the forward moving figure.

The other artwork is designed to give a sense of how the character moves and emotes.
