Character: medieval archer
Environment: running track
Show: cooking show
Artist: Michael Sowa
The main character William Tell is a lunatic archer that after mastering the art of shooting apples decided to teach his fellow peasants how to live an healthy life.
Here you can see some expressions and the turn around
Albert Gessler, the historic enemy of William Tell, is nothing but an old man that constantly asks William to leave his private property, but is ignored all the time.
The recurrent characters would be the four people in the background, every week doing a different exercise: the first one gets to eat the food William just prepared while the last one has to go through the apple shooting challenge, a recurring gag of the show, never violent, but always funny and wacky.
Mr Henry seemed to like my idea but suggested me to pick a more definite age range for the show: either for younger kids with less fat/narcoletic jokes and with absolutely no violence or for older kids with less interest for the cookery and more on the gags. Tough choice i presume.
I am a little concerned about my drawing style thou, i am supposed to draw like Michael Sowa but i hardly have the skills to paint like him. I tried basing all the side characters on painting he did and using the same color palette and backgrounds but according to the teacher it is not enough. Luckily, he liked the idea and characters so he said that i only have to put more work in the future animation test.
Little to do now. I'll have to add a lot more though and work into the pitch bible. See you soon!
