This week we want you to create a new character from the Academy Award winning movie, Soul - created by Pixar and tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #Soul.

Pixar's jazz-infused Soul recently won the Academy Award for best animated feature. The movie features the vocal talents of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Questlove, Angela Bassett and Daveed Diggs. In this week's drill, we are challenging you to choose a famous actor/actress, then design and build  a new character that would fit perfectly into the imagined world of Soul. You can create your new character in 2D or 3D. Reference images provided below.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
