haha it's on the list, and not just a general to-do list, but my actual scheduled to-do's (it's about 5th, after colour studies and a lineart regime, and finishing off my open requests as well). I'm planning to do at least 4 one-shots and a one-volume story, possibly with other regimes in the middle :P

awesome! Every single one is instantly recognizable, even the ones from shows I haven't seen!
these would make nice trading/playing cards or something!
a slightly side point, but this minimalist style is very suited to vector art
I'm constantly amazed at how many characters you fit onto a single illustration XD

Again, this will make a really nice rug. Minimalism takes a lot of work because have to get the character with so little. Good work here.

Neat stuff Walter! I'd be interested in seeing you start taking out elements from that piece and simplifying things further to see at what point you're unable to convey who is who.

Thanks! I guess some of them are generic enough that you would not be able to identify them without the context (kurapika from HxH, nami from One Piece).

yeah context does help. often the artists original style helps to identify a character if they are a bit of a generic character design.
This is sort of a checklist for good character design - "how simplified can the character be before they are not recognizable?"
I heard a similar one aaaages ago, "if your character was wearing a generic outfit and changed their hairstyle, would they still be recognizable?"
while outfit and hairstyle are important in character design and help in identifying characters, the face is also important in keeping the characters fresh ,unique and identifiable.

Now I've learnt that King Louis XVI never used pillows.

Minimalist anime:



Late to this one but I love it! Nicely done Walter. You really know how to capture the elements of each character. Props

King Louis XVI also vacillated so much they cut his head off (another fun fact: the French people really didn't want to decapitate the king at first, but he just kept f*cking up), so I'd hesitate taking his sleeping advice.

Thanks guys

I got something different for today. I have some productivity advice for you, supported with cartoons! This is the short version of a post I made in my blog:

Here are five essential tips that will help you boost your productivity at work:

Focus on the essential

The majority of the results you obtain at work come from a handful of essential tasks, such as drafting a report or preparing a presentation for a client. Make sure to dedicate an appropriate amount of time to those errands, ideally without getting interrupted.



Make a list

Lists are a powerful organizational tool that will help you keep track of your progress. Make sure to make a to-do list each day and do your best to complete every task each day.



Start early

You can become and early riser and add as much as three hours to a regular workday. Getting up early will give you extra time for exercising, planning, reading and completing tasks.



Batch your tasks

A great productivity technique consists in batching similar tasks and doing them all together, ideally in one sitting.  Common tasks that can be batched together are responding to emails, returning phone calls.



Take pauses

Our brains get tired an foggy when we spend a large amount of time working, which in turn leads to lower productivity. Take a pause or even a quick nap to recharge batteries and let your brain rest

Great list and drawings to go with it Walter c:
Making a list is one of my favourite ways to be productive.

One thing I found that helped me with the focus part was working with a timer set for an hour, and taking short breaks between each hour, instead of trying to plough through a project in say a three-hour sitting. Just having a moment to get up, do a little something else, and come back helped to remove some of that brain fog.

No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.
