Almost Final Character Designs

A bunch of designs for the background characters that will not be used in the film because they are too individual. I don't know why I didn't think of it at the time, but as slaves it would be more likely that they would all wear the same uniform. Duh. I might keep the faces though.


I tried a bunch of variations on the costumes, one that would ideally work for all the Elves. And ended up with something like this:So, here is the official uniform for Santa's little helpers. Note the addition of pants on the male version. He originally had red and white striped tights too, but it looked a little fruity.

And here's Mr Claus. He's less wide than the older version (posted a little while ago), and I think this one is a lot more animatable. There's also more of a hip connection than there used to be.

I think this santa will be better for animation, i totally agree with the hips now, and as for the uniforms of the elves, I think you went with the right one.. you wouldnt want slaves to have individuality lol. maybe some slight variations could work though, like how the males and females have pants and stalkings, maybe one or two could have those leather aprons, or leather gloves depending on what station they are working at. But I really like it man, looks good especially with the two tones
