:target: PegChan was shortlisted in IMAF's Character Design category 2006! :w00t: :target:

Peg-Chan is my character which I created to enter into the IMAF [link] competition, for the Open/Character design for children section.
This pic shows line-art of Peg-Chan (and Takoyaki-kun the octopus) in some standard "turnaround" views. This is generally part of the standard character design process for me, which I tend to do if presenting a character to be converted into a 3D model (for video games, etc.) or for animation purposes.

Here's the background info for the character:
Pegchan loves to scoot around the decks of her ship on her trusty wheeled peg-leg. When she gets whizzing around at full speed she's practically a blur!
Pegchan's little friend Takoyaki-kun is no ordinary stuffed toy octopus, either. He's a strange voodoo doll that Pegchan acquired on a visit to a remote island, and he's posessed by the spirit of a former ship's captain (a very highly regarded one at that). But even so, Tako admits that he messed up big-time when he got on the wrong side of a voodoo priest and ended up in the state he is today. Takoyaki-kun is the voice of reason when Pegchan gets a bit too hot-headed for her own good.

I have no university qualifications in art or anything extraordinary on the higher education front. ^^; What I do have is 20 years of professional working experience, lots of practice and a passion for creative work. I believe the latter two are all you need to get started on your path! :aww:

Eep, you had a VK-UK T-shirt? :wow: Which one did you have and when/where did you get it? *curious*
That's so sweet that you want to cosplay Peg-Chan! :blushes: That'd be awesome... I'd love to see! If you do cosplay her, be sure to get photos! :D

How exactly does Peg-chan (is that really her name?) walk??? Wouldn't she just fall over most of the time because of that wheel? Or does she hop most of the time? Is Takoyaki-kun going to be a "comic" character like Kon, the stuffed lion, in Bleach?

You know Heelys shoes? She moves as if she has one of them on her left foot, scooting along on her wheel while pushing off with her right foot. I imagine the movement would be very exaggerated if animated though... it's all make-believe fun after all! :D
I haven't seen enough of the Bleach anime to know how Kon acts (although I can picture him). Takoyaki-kun would be quite comical, although probably not intentionally on his part. Character-wise he'd be quite serious but because of the way he looks no-one would be able to take him seriously. This would probably just make him more frustrated. :XD: I can imagine him having quite a deep voice like Chiyo's dad (the strange cat type thing) in Azumanga Daioh.
