Ich bin ein Wunderbaum - high school stuff

I'll continue my Oldies Goldies -posts. With these I was at the same time pleasently surprised that I didn't grin in horror when looking at them but at the sae time thinking that have I improved so little.

These character design sketches were done when I was in high school (circa 95-96). A group consistings of a young and older animation enthusiasts and an animation veteran was thinking about an animation short. I don't remember why it didn't start going forward but I guess that's the case usually anyway.

The character in the synopsis was this wooden puppet (not Pinocchio). And I think we were discussing the name of Wunderbaum for it or it might have been that I just scribbled that next to the sketches. So here are the sketches I drew mostly on the spot. There's a couple of variations on the character. I also included some sketches to samurai character to a short animation that a friend and I were thinking about. Pure gold :D

  2. Yeah they do, I noticed that also :) I think it wasn't intentional though but it sure was something I liked as a kid.
