Developing initial Ideas

One of the ideas we have been thinking about for the experimental animation module is based around a carnival/parade and influenced by Paprika (2006).

Conor sketched out the above character following our conversation about the idea and I have been modelling the character in Maya. This will give us the opportunity to experiment with working together and transferring paper-based concepts into 3D.

 I was unsure whilst modelling of the type of shirt to give the character. Having discussed this we have decided to base use the following images are reference and create a simplified frill type collar.

 By modelling the characters clothes separately will later be able to experiment with adding dynamics to the material using nMesh.
