How do you create character models that look 'Dont Starvish'

Recommended Posts

The drawing style is quite loose and fairly simplistic. The line of action is also quite prominent (the curve the entire body will follow) and really dictates a pose. My advice (from when I was learning to mimic it) is use your whole arm, and don't be afraid about taking a few tries to get a line (without undoing/erasing) and short strokes as opposed to long flowing ones are also okay. 


This model sheet I find helped a lot in understanding how the expressions were made. :-)

I want to know the reverse. How can I make a character model that looks like it doesn't fit in? Say for example, a character with more realistic proportions (as opposed to the chibi-ish ones in Don't Starve), or maybe a character that's really big or little. Or one that is a quadruped!
