Over the last week I have been finalising my 2d boy character design and have created a model sheet. I've also been doing some designs for the dog and rat characters. This process has taken the most amount of time as I have really struggled to pin down exactly what I want the look to be. Also I'm not very good at creating characters from scratch but I'm actually really happy with the final design for the boy character.
I have intentionally tried to use two different styles, one for the boy and another for the dog & rat, to emphasize that the dog & rat are cartoon characters in this world that the boy watches on tv.
I've tried to use basic shapes to create these characters to keep it simple which will make it easier to animate later on.
