We wanted to create a character for Comic Collector, a comic style superhero we could use in the software for details view templates, commercial banners and just overall on our website.
Development on this character started and she became “CeCe”. Check out how she changed from initial sketches, to the final art showing CeCe in several different poses and of course, the Spiderman spoof cover art.
The CeCe character is being used in various Comic Collector advertising campaigns. You may have seen banner ads featuring CeCe on your favorite comic-related websites.
Roughs and drafts
Initial rough sketches for the character design. Note how CC has a blue cape here.
Costume variations: cape and sleeve colors.
More costume variations : tights, skirts in various colors. Note how version 1 is closest to the final design.
And even more, now with hot pants: hair colors, cape colors.
Rough draft of the "CC presents" pose.
Rough draft of the "flying" pose.
Some ideas for poses, pointing and flying. See the 3rd flying pose, where the Comic Collector logo serves as some kind of disc weapon / frisbee thingie?
Roughs of the "Close up" and "Pointing" poses.
Rough draft of the "Ready for action" pose (which we always call the "Power Up" pose nowadays).
