Animation Character Design, Gesture Sheet, Marvel Animation Studios, AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, Hawkeye.  Pencil, Digital ink and color.

For Season One of AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, my task was to adapt the art style and model designs established by Jeff Wamester.  "Gesture Sheets" (also referred to as "Expression Sheets") are often done depicting various action poses, feature or costume details, distinctive traits or anatomy, and situational expressions in order to provide the overseas animators with an optimum amount of information.  Hawkeye can be a tough character to handle, mostly due to his archery theme.  To help facilitate matters on my end, I referenced the works of the great Brazilian artist, Rodolfo Damaggio for a couple shots of Hawkeye using his bow.  It was important to show the character doing this from interesting and dynamic angles, as well as on the move.  Whether or not these poses would be translated directly to the screen is not especially critical.  Gesture Sheets are primarily reference material.

My sojourn at Marvel Animation Studios was my introduction to illustrating exclusively within the computer, and I was required to "jump into the deep end of the pool" rather quickly, so to speak, using a Cintiq.  It must be noted that I have finished off this art long after the fact, and the color selections and shadow treatments are my own, just for fun and further practice.  The final version of the character as seen on television does differ from this one.  I hope you like it, and I hope this text has been informative.
Thanks for viewing!  Cheers!  :)

I love it.  The angles choices are wonderful.

Your "jump into the deep end" makes me envious.  You delivered great stuff.
