Being a massive fan of the Bay Dream festival, I approached the organisers Pato Alvarez and Mitch Lowe to design the 2020 Characters for both the Mount and Nelson gigs.
I had an idea of what I wanted to create, so I decided that I would create a pitch to send to them to not only show my ability to create a character but also tell the story of how I came to finished concepts.
Pato and Mitch both loved the concepts but had some changes that they wanted to be done.
-The first change was simplifying/removing detail in the character design. This was done, so the character fit into the style with past characters.
-The removal of the tattoos (anchor and ship). With the addition of the "BD" tattoo on the neck of the male.
and the most significant change is the addition of the female character for The Mount festival.
The female character went through a couple of changes before being decided to go with the visor and the love heart tattoo under the eye.
