Chowder works

Here are some of my favorite designs. Drawing for this show is very fun. Lots of chubbiness & sqwooshiness. You gotta design as if everything was made of plush and you want to hug everyone! There a rarely any sharp designy angles or striaght edges. Chowder will be putting all sorts of things in his mouth in every show. I have a feeling the Parents health club is gonna have a word with us.
Angry hippo

Yak guy

Shnitzel in safari outfit

Brian,

That white rhyming cat was named Wordsworth, I think. Jeez, I remembered it without even trying.

Chris Battle said...

Chowder is good for the soul!

...and why should that Greenblatt guy hog all the Chowdery fun, anyways? More, please.

Fawn said...

"Shnitzel in safari outfit" is hilarious!

What is he supposed to be? Are they all random animal-like creature?

Edward said...

I remember having doing an illustrated book report on a book based of the old Ewoks cartoon in grade school. The kids in the class were impressed by how similar my drawings were to the book. Anyways nice work on your drawing, I just felt compelled to tell my Ewok story. Lol.

'Chowder' looks like SO much fun!... Great, fun drawings... I love the "make em huggable" approach to the design... so appealing! :)
AND, of course, ANYTHING Ewok related ALSO rules!

xenos said...

i don't have cable so i guess i will have to hear how the show does on-line. great designs serapio, something about the direction reminds of old saturday morning cartoons like school house rock or something. keep it coming yo!

Alina Chau said...

Wicked fun characters!!

Mukpuddy said...

Great post dude!! I really do want to hug Chowder!!

Clinton said...

Chowder looks good :) Are you still experimenting with different colors, or is this final design? If chowder becomes as big as Spongebob, then you might get complaining parents with kids stuffing every inanimate and animate object they find in their mouths. Oh well, it's their problem. Keep up the good works :)
