The Numbears (character design/illustration)

Postby jeffnevins » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:32 am

First time posting in the Gallery, I think.

I created them over a decade ago, but a business partner/friend in L.A., Phil Snyder recently brought them to life with his voice talent & vision for the project as an educational CD.

There's something else in the works, but here's some of the design & product illustration so far:

And the former design from years ago:

Good looking characters, Jeff. You have a distinctive style and a knack for developing these kinds of properties. Thanks for posting your work.

Those designs are so incredibly cute. I love how rounded and happy looking they are.

I especially love the pandas but for personal reasons.

Thanks very much. I forgot to here since Mon.
Looking forward to showing the rest of the art when the project wraps (soon, I hope).
