I'm part of a blog made up of kids who go to/went to Ringling. This b-weekly theme was to re-design a character and I chose Roger Rabbit. He was a HUGE inspiration for me as an animator and just making me want to make things funny. Mainly because if HE can get a smoking hot wife, maybe I could too. Even at 3 I had huge hopes.
I think this is more what would happen to someone playing him after a few years.
I love mascots. They creep me out and make me sad, but I love the IDEA of someone having to be a character in a super hot sweaty and cramped suit for minimum wage.
Quick sketch and colors. Hour tops.
