Bringing back the Pigs


This is a very static expressions sheet done for a project pitch to GE, while I was working at a 3D animation studio. It's not so much a character pitch, as it was done to convince a client that a simple smiley pig can have varying expressions and lots of character, based on simple line changes and shadow/color design...

I just think he's cute.

Hello there. I gotta say, you're the man. I'm starting out with caricatures, found your stuff recently. I've been copy you, OpDeBeeck, Silver, BobChiu, and some more to get this style as quick as i can..i wanna live with illustration money, that's it, and funny thing, caricature is what came to me first. I'm not looking for it, the job just came to me, now i need to learn it and do it the best i can. I'm in Brazil and here we don't have too many great caricature artists... most of them suck and just want the client's "easey money" and that's it. I'm trying to get good at it, 'cause i do care if my work is good, money comes later i guess.. i have a fulltime job (webdesigner) that i don't like it that much... i wanna be a illustrator. Any clues to a brazilian dude on how to get the eye for caricature?
Anyway, just drop to say hi to a great inspirator. Keep bloggin', cause' i signed for it in my RSS reader. Take care, from a NOT Anonymous dude, my name is Igor Busquets ( visionartsite.blogspot.com )

I think he'd look really good squealing in pain between two pieces of toast.
