I recently did a design test for a Children's show gear towards Indian youth. It was taking Indian Children's Rhyme and creating a world out of it. It was gonna be in the vein of Yo, Gabba Gabba and Mother Goose Club.
I, sadly, didn't get it but I had a blast doing the test.
However, it gave me some great addition to my portfolio.
I've always loved Indian design aesthetics.
It was fun simplifying those in these characters.
I actually did it twice. The first attempt was to "cartoon-y" for a live action show.
So, I altered the characters on the second attempt.
They are more "Live-action" but still showed kid-friendly costumes.
I definitely did more than what I was asked... that's how much fun I was having with it!
Hopefully, I'll get another opportunity to get to do it for real. Or I'll just make my own children's book with these characters.
