pizzaman joe

character design

These are characters I was commissioned to design for a 3-D computer game for 8-12-year-olds. The instructions were to design a girl player, a boy player, and a character named "Pizzaman Joe". The only other specifications were that they had to be simple enough to be replicated in 3-D and easily identifiable at 3/4", because much of the game would be played from a birds'-eye-view. Under these circumstances, I figured it would be best to give them distinguishing characteristics other than facial features.
