Character Design Inpiration

As I'm about to resume the journey of learning to draw well, I look to a lot of different sources for inspiration. For life drawing, I've posted links in previous posts, to those who inspire me a great deal.

The links in the right column of this page are full of people who can draw well and so inspire me immensely. As I was visiting these sites today I realised that perhaps my biggest inspirations, in fact my top three, aren't even listed there. Scandalous!

So in case you haven't had the opportunity to view the works of these geniuses of character design and drawing, here they are:

Mike Kunkel: Formerly employed at Disney, now continues his wicked style in inspirational design with his comic, "Herobear and the Kid".

Tom Bancroft: Another former Disney designer doing his own thing with his comic, "Opposite Forces".

Steven Gordon: With an amazing career and humongous gallery spanning animation, character design, and story art. Just click the link and waste an hour being amazed.
