When working on a side view for my character I tried a few different styles to try and make it look as similar to the front view as possible. From these attempts I feel as if fig 1 has the most likeness to the character front view. My next step will be to draw this side view digitally and clean it up to be able to take the front and side view into Maya to start modelling.

After looking through different designs of frog characters and looking back through my sketches I decided to try to design the frog slightly differently (fig 1). I found that these didn't quite fit the character design I want to go for but it allowed me to develop further to get to what I like to think are my final designs in figures 4, 5, 6 and 7. I have received positive feedback from these designs from people i have asked that are within the target audience. I plan on taking these designs further digitally, creating pieces of concept art as well as orthographs so I am able to take the character into maya to start to model him.

I am currently still working to develop my frog character to a professional standard before taking it into Maya to model in 3d. From looking at the progression of the sketches that I have I can notice a great improvement in the development and design of the character. I feel as if I am slowly getting the character to look more and more appealing the the viewer as well as getting the right mixture of cartoon frog while still including realistic elements. Any feed back on designs would be very appreciated.
