Here are some rough sketches I have done trying to figure out Pedro and Kipp for Napoleon Dynamite. This is always the toughest stage and the funnest.

Very nice, but I think the executives won't let pass Daniel Ortega, will they?

Fun explorations Steve - so is this show in talks or is this just a "for fun" thing for you.

hope to see you in SD in a few weeks and pick up the new book.

Flippin' SWEEEEET! How cool would an animated DYNAMITE be? Great exploratory sketches.

bxobKelly,
Everyone of us has the exact same features, eyes, nose, ears ect.. It is all about varying these elements within the basic shape of a face, variation in sizes. the best way to simplify is look at things really quick and go with your first impression.

Clarke,
This is just a fun personal project. see you in San Diego

Justin Rodrigues said...

awesome steve. That kip is great.

lafe said...

hilarious

toonamir said...

The expression and posture is SO Pedro! The one above Napoleon running is the finest!

UM said...

I used to work with a guy called Patrick Mate who looks exactly like the drawing on the very right, at least that's the way I remember him. Great sketches as usual.

Taylor Krahenbuhl said...

Wow, these are great!! Thanks for the inspiration Silver.

Alina Chau said...

fun character sketches!! REAL cool!

Doctor Jones said...

Sweet.
I keep coming back to this post to take another look.
The head on the very left Pedro is right on but for some reason I like the body of the one closest to Kip.
I think the pose feels more like him.
That Kip is great and so's the Napoleon in run mode.
I can see him running down that long dirt road now.
It'd be really great to see a clean version some time in the future.

Doctor Jones said...

Hahaha!
I just took a closer look at the the running Napoleon's face.
That's priceless!

That Kip sketch is spot-on. The Pedro one is pretty damn close.

Gerald said...
