No this is not a blog post about the 2D boy game studio. ... its' about a 2D character i designed from scratch.. This was the first time i did it, the work i did with recreating the 2D characters from Sita sings' blues has certainly helped me a lot here. First i used MyPaint to create rough sketches of how i wanted the character to look.

Update: the blend file is up on blend swap.com.. http://www.blendswap.com/blends/characters/2d-boy/
Update1: Just discovered a sprite sheet plugin for gimp.. http://registry.gimp.org/node/20943 works pretty well, i had to change the final image a little to match my requirement but.. it does the job..
