Major Project: Exploring Colour

To tie my characters into their universe, I've tried to pick similar colour swatches by changing the hue on coolors.

I have a few colours to choose from, though I'm using the farmost right colours in my experiment below. 

I used Starfish Cheerleader for this. I feel like it would be easier to help pick colours when having more of the characters together, however so far I do like 4, 5 and 6.

Major Project: Starfish Cheerleader Posing and Orthographs

After choosing my 8 drawings to develop I started with one of the simplest characters, Starfish Cheerleader. 

I decided to draw them up in cute poses and explore the kind of character they are, I see them as sweet and cheerful. I'll be creating an expression sheet to use later on with 2D facial rigging.

As it's such a simple shape to work with I've also drawn out the characters Orthographs to move into Maya and begin modelling.

Major Project: Chosen drawings

After speaking to a few people and just picking a few favourites of mine I've come to the decision of which drawings of the 115 I'd like to take forward. 

I've split them into 'Good Guys' and 'Bad Guys' as shown below! 

Good Guys 

Bad Guys

My next stage is to prepare them to be modeled and decide what colours I may use for them.
