Recently I was hired by Snert Studios to design a wacky rooster character for a Flash-based children’s website they are developing. The site is still under construction but the client has given me permission to post my work on the project.

I wanted to push the designs in a more stylized direction than normal so I started playing around with various shapes and proportions to see how far I could push things and still retain the essence of a rooster. Above are the various sketches I submitted to the client.

The client really liked both D and E. Rather than choose it was decided that instead of the website having one rooster character it would have two. Sort of a comedy team. Birds of a feather you might say.

Here’s the final designs, inked and colored in Illustrator:
