Model Pack - Where's Watson

All right, here’s my end of term character design assignment.  The model pack had to have three characters (one male, one female, and one anthropomorphic) and a vehicle.

Here’s the story:

Reports of supernatural creatures around London are on the rise.  Many years have passed since Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson retired.  Watson now has a daughter, Maria Watson, a university student studying forensic science in Paris.  Maria returns home at Christmas and discovers that her father Dr. Watson is missing.  Maria finds Sherlock and the two begin searching for Watson, unaware that they are slowly being pulled into what might be the greatest mystery of either of their careers.

Or something like that.

Maria -  5 Point Turnaround

Maria Watson is the main character.

Maria - Mouth Shapes

Maria - Expressions

Maria - Poses

Leandro - Turnaround

Leandro is a vampire who also happens to be a criminal genius.  Picture a more badass vampire version of Moriarty.

Leandro - Mouth Shapes

The A-H mouth shapes are standard mouth shapes used for lip sync, and don't mean that the mouth is making the sound of A-H.

Leandro - Expressions

Leandro - Poses

The top left pose is a sequence showing the bat to human transformation.

Ferkos - Turnaround

Ferkos is a werewolf who can be incredibly vicious, but is also unexpectedly helpful.  He's a villain, but not strictly evil.  Kind of like a wolf dude version of Catwoman.

Ferkos - Mouth Shapes

Ferkos - Expressions

Ferkos - Poses

The Zoomer - Turnaround

This is the vehicle.  Excuse the dumb name, I was working down to the wire on this one.  I do like the idea though.  Maria's crime solving crew consists of one dog with a great sense of smell, another perfect for stealth missions, and a fat cat with a certain je ne sais quoi.

Character Lineup

Here is the entire crew.

Definitely some things I would like to touch up at some point, but what's here is how I handed it in.  Would be fun to try a little colouring with it though, seeing as I've got the clean-up already done.

We'll see...
