Cover for Adventure Time Comics #8 from the fine folks at Boom.
Reblogged from King of Ooo, the official Adventure Time tumblr:
Sweet P designs from the "Be Sweet" episode of Adventure Time. The top designs were my first attempts and the bottom design is what ended up on the air.
Mouth chart for one of the bizarre aliens in the "Orgalorg" episode of Adventure Time.
And below, here's an alien from the same episode which changed quite a bit through the design process. The first image was my initial drawing and the second image shows what ended up on the air.
These periscope helmets from the "You Forgot Your Floaties" episode were the first designs I ever worked on for Adventure Time.
Here are the design models of the snow suits Finn and Jake wore in the "Broke His Crown" episode of Adventure Time.
Here's another Princess Bubblegum design I loved working on from the "Lady Rainicorn of the Crystal Dimension" episode of Adventure Time. Gotta love those shoulder pads. :) It was based on a sketch from Somvilay Xayaphone's storyboard.
Here is the character design I was talking about in the video I posted a couple of days ago:
There's talk among hardcore Adventure Time fans about this being a hanbok. It's not. Not exactly. As explained in the video, this design came about when I combined a kimono with a hanbok. She was wearing a kimono in the storyboard (by the great Ako) and I thought it would be fun to mix it with a hanbok to create something unique to Ooo. (I thought it was cool that it reflected both of our heritage as well.) If you look carefully, the sleeves are not from hanboks, they're from kimonos, as is the waistband. Hanboks do not have waistbands. Also hanbok ties on the chest do not form a bow, they are tied to one side. Just wanted to clarify that. As to what Princess Bubblegum wearing this dress signifies, that's up to you. :)
