Monthly: Link Redesign - Bob Rissetto

Originally I wanted to do a very primitive 3D looking link that was inspired by the Dire Straits video "Money for Nothing".  Very quickly that became no fun.  You can check out some of the exploration doodles that lead me up these designs on my own BLOG.  So this first one is a weird amalgamation of different influences - storybook, Spumco, rubber hose, etc.

And this one was inspired by UPA type cereal commercials.  When I got to color, it started to feel a lot more like a style you might see in some sorta independent comic.  A simple character, liberal blacks, and a limited color palette.

Daily: Toad - Patrick Cheng

Ironically, Toad doesn't jump very well in Super Mario 2.
