So they were originally going to be playing poker and then it occurred to me I have no idea how to play poker.
So now they’re in an intense match of a Yu-Gi-Oh/ Pokemon rip off 🙂
I got the idea to make the cards based on the characters in the animation from games like Rage (2010) and The Witcher: Gwent (2017) which both use characters from inside the game as characters for the cards.
The Wither: Gwent.
So as we were making hair in Z Brush the other week I had to make a Saiyan! Still got to re-topologise and paint it but worked okay!
So as well as James’ I also modelled a few props for Aaron’s lab environment to fill it out a bit more 🙂
Made a quick little still to see how everything looked when lit, it’s not the best but it’ll do. Want to mess around and try and get some atmosphere in there somehow
So my third character is finally finished thanks to Jack!
Here he is, Now I can finish blocking!
My initial plan was to have another human character but after how long I spent on my first one and the fact I had two more to do, I decided to make the antagonist a robot to cut down on modelling time. It would’ve worked out if the rig didn’t break but there ewe go :)))
My original villain design 🙂
So when Debra was going round the other day she was a bit confused to the actual setting of the story (and why my characters mask fits like that on his face) so heres a bit of context into the kind of setting I was going for.
I was looking at other games and films that were set in either a western, other worldly or apocalyptic environment.
Here are a few references I got ideas from 🙂
The Good The Bad and The Ugly (1968) – classic and used a lot of references for my camera shots, especially when I go into close ups on the eyes.
Borderlands 2 (2012) – really liked this one and the idea of it being on another planet.
This is the art style I went for (Disney Infinity) which is why his fingers are so blocky and what not 🙂
Star Wars Rebels was another inspiration and I really liked the setting and flat colours!
