New Character Design!

For our third term of animation here at Vanarts, we're focusing on dialog. Our second exercise involves a banter between the first character we designed (good ol' Boots Newton) and a new character. Since we had our mid-term crit today, I had to put together some model sheets. So here they are for your viewing pleasure:

and we'll go ahead and throw a Boots mouth chart in here for good measure...
oh, and by the way- the letters under the mouth shapes don't represent the actual letter he's forming. When animating, you keep track of your drawings by numbering them. With mouth charts, you label the poses alphabetically. The reason for this is, (in the working world) when an animator is calling for various mouths for inbetweens, there is no mistaking that pose for a numbered drawing.
