I like the last one, he's naive, geeky and likable as a character, however the other two have been hiking for much longer so I suppose it depends on the character, is he a rookie or a pro? If he's a pro I'd choose one of the first two, but my fav is the last one.
Cool, thanks for the input. I'll be posting more and more visual development stuff as we finish the script.
Yeah, it depends on what the feel of the character is. The last one is very friendly, yet gullible. He's more interested in the scenery than just hiking. All that stuff strapped to his back is because he read online that he should pack all that stuff. The first guy, though, he knows what every single item on his pack is and when to use it. He doesn't talk much, but he'll stop to help you if you were lost or something. The middle guy is creepy. That camera probably has more pictures of women than birds and mountains. He's surprisingly nimble for carrying so much stuff, which allows him to hide in the bushes better when some hot ladies go power walking by in short shorts.
Yeah, I love break down of the characters.
It does depend on the personality of the character. The one on the far right looks like a dufus, the one in the middle looks (to me) like a bit of a "low brow" with an IQ in the 80's. The one on the left is my favorite -- he looks like he's smart enough to know he's lost, which he just realized that he is.
I really like the middle guy.
The one on the left
They're all nice-- the guy on the left is easiest for me to relate to. But, yeah, each of these characters has a story he would fit nicely into, so it just depends on which one you've written... yadda yadda yadda. Anyways I'm looking forward to seeing more of this as it progresses!( I like the compass lanyard too-- I was given one awhile back but, unfortunately, lost it. )
I think the first one is the coolest.
I like the shape of the head on the first guy best, I think it works well with the angle of his body. But i like the features and hair on the middle guys face better, so maybe a mix of both?
The one on the left is the one I connect with most, HOWEVER -- I would love to see something bad happen to the one on the right. As a character, the rightmost one isn't so much "likable" however he's VERY memorable! It would be totally amusing to watch him do stupid things and get injured!
