This week we learned concept design with Kevin Dart and Chris Turnham.
This was probably the hardest week up until now. I would have been a lot better if this course was a two week thing. But anyway, I learned a lot and the result was great, and we realy got to use the tricks we learned with lawrence last week.
This week was the beginning of a seven-week project where we in the end have to make a final rendered 3D-image with a character and an indoor invironment. The style guide for this project is a bit complicated i think. The style for the character should be a bit like these vinyl-figure toy where everything is very simple and within the basic silhouette like this: http://dopefeast.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/gama-go-yeti.jpg
And the topic is circus freak, so it has to relate to that.
We had to do all sorts of hand-ins in the process and it was really hard, but also very nice.
My first design for the character looked like this.
But the look didn't feel right to the character and his story.
So then he came to look like this.
But then Kevin told me to make it alot more simple.
and so, my final design came to look like this :D
And for the invironment i came up with this thumbnail
