First one is a silhouette assignment, emphasis on posing and clarity. Character's required to go through 3 different emotional states.
This one is a character waiting with a prop. I have a friend who seems to have an outright physiological impairment with respect to waiting for the microwave to finish. Without fail, he always, ALWAYS stops the microwave with a few seconds left. On top of it, he'll heat things about a third of the time he's supposed to, and ends up either taking forever to heat his food, or eating it cold.
Now I'm working on Push/Pull(pretty much what it sounds like, but with our own character this time).
