I've decided to go a new direction with ALEX SERYOUA.
She will resemble Erin from the esurance commercials, which I absolutely love. I'm going to construct the cartoon in a similar fashion, but no worries, this will be all my doing. I like the simplistic look, a minimalistic take on my idea. It's a lot easier to animate and it looks really clean. Not sure when I'll start this thing, because I have Halomen7 on my hands and haven't had any progress yet. I'm too lazy on break and sit around on Halo all day. Oh well. Soon I'll be back on campus freezing my ass off as I walk to classes and also I'm going to try to get a job at Barnes and Noble. That would be cool.
Anyways, what do you guys think of this? Larger images can be found here!
Update: I have made adjustments to her facial structure. I mean, I like the Esurance commercials, and I want to animate in the style, but her cheek and pointed chin were too much. My girlfriend pointed that one out haha. Also lowered the nose so that she doesn't look like Oprah haha.
Here's a link to a sample of her running from a front view. This is actual animation, not just a bunch of symbols tweened. It also serves as the first official storyboard clip. Give into peer pressure and click.
