Adaptation B: Improved Beetle sketches

Unfortunately I've been pretty ill so I haven't been able to do this as quickly as I had hoped. With some help with Alan I've moved along pretty quickly. 

Each beetle is made up of a similar shape, but slightly changed. 

In terms of Paper, Plastic and Glass I think 1 is working best, whereas Metal should have some variation of 3 or 4. 

I'm going to work on cleaner versions of these and improve them overall.

Adaptation B: Beetle sketches

Paper Beetle
I see Paper as an older more reliable character and therefore I think 1,3 and 4 are closest to what I imagine. 2 could be used for Plastic instead.

Glass Beetle
 I see glass as a confident, beautiful and sharp beetle. I think working close to 1 and 4 could help me achieve this.

Metal Beetle
 I want the metal beetle to appear strong. I quite like number 1 and 4.

Plastic beetle 

I see plastic as a younger beetle, based somewhat around childrens toys and how that looks. I like 1, 2 and 3.

@Alan Adaptation B: New idea direction

After looking at both Slugterra and Pokemon I've come up with a new idea to go with my recyclable materials theme. Alan suggested looking at Slugterra because of how it's slug characters are based on the same basic shape. I then went in search of what my base shape could be.

I decided to do a google search of insects because they're an inspiration behind Pokemon and found a picture of a ladybird and it just clicked with me that my recyclable characters could be beetles.

Beetles come in similar shapes but some are slightly different and can be different sizes. They can also come in a variety of colours meaning I could be inventive with colour and texture and they could still be believable as beetles. 

I also believe this could work as a concept in terms of it's 'story'. The recyclable beetles could collect recyclable materials in a ball and roll them in a similar way that dung beetles would. This also reminded me of the game Katamari. 

The next step would be to define the base shape and then start thinking about the alterations between character.
