"Sorry, I really don't like summers ..."

Some characters stick with you. This one, Arkturus Foyle, I originally thought up between 2001 and 2002 for a comic strip to amuse some people in an online fan forum. He was a sort of anti-Harry Potter. The 2006 version was part of a pitch I had the chance to present to Kids! WB who, of course, didn’t pick it up.
Funny how things change in over fifteen years: the uncoordinated designs, all wonky edges and cheap Photoshop Elements effects of then, to the rounder, more focused version of now after over a decade of doing professional animation (hopefully) beat some discipline into me. Still, many basic design ideas persist.
