We were given a choice of themes to design a cast of characters from : the Hero, the One They Love, the Villain, and the Sidekick. I kept stripes as a repeating pattern for the good guy's designs. I wish I'd done more to push the villain, both in terms of design and contrasting tones, but I generally struggled with designing him.

The final character line-up. Left to right : Mason (Hero), Rodney (One They Love), Ballard (Villain), and Ash (Sidekick).

Each character needed to have three poses, and poses could be combined. I used my poses as much as possible to tell the plot. Concept work can be found below, with two rough concepts for each character.
