Look, I’m still alive! Here’s some Professor Layton character (re)design studies! It was fun drawing in a more shape-oriented aesthetic, and interpreting the characters in a different way!
I didn’t bother with characters that had more caricatured features (e.g. Dean Delmona, Goosey) because they would just look the same if I drew them. Rather, I took characters that have pretty ambiguous and/or similar features, and gave them varying features that suited their personality. It kinda helps that my summer job includes drawing people. I still have a lot to learn about character design, but it’s really fun!
although I’ve never really done anything like this, surprisingly the results came out well, I think? I try not to think of my drawings as “anime style” or “cartoon style” or any “style”! I just think of them as drawing. as long as you know the basics, you can experiment with your knowledge, combine concepts, and create things that are new!
notes: - let me know if you can’t read my writing. I tried but it’s still reminiscent of chicken scratch. - this is NOT meant to be 100% accurate to the original designs, or me claiming that they are law. it’s just my personal interpretations of the characters.
The limited edition Last Specter Trick or Treat wallpaper (originally uploaded by shinjinotikari17) that was available for Level 5s Roid service at the time, with the “SAMPLE” text removed! I also tried to clean up the colours a little bit so it looks nicer.
This is largely a quick little present for the wonderful spectrumv who’s been working really hard lately!
