Character Design inpirations

For character designs, I first look at designer toys for inspiration. For those that don’t know what they are, they’re pretty much expensive pieces of vinyl plastic collectibles (see here). But I am more intrigued at the work of James Jarvis. I don’t know what it is, but I just like his simple character designs. Another illustrator that I like is Tim Tsui. I’m starting to think that it’s all those thick outlines and the simple colors that both artists use on their characters that gives that cartoony feeling that I want to mimic.
