remember i was looking at tall thin figures, out of proportion heads, wide eyes and long unbound hair.
for me this was really straight forward so i thought i would start to get this tiny sketches done
here are the results.
There are for different types of the Silfen as the story goes on i will be concentrating on the youngest and the teen stages because i thought they are the most interesting stage of the alien.
the youngest stage of the Silfen in the story are seen dancing and pl
aying flutes in a forest and are described as almost elf like, and the teen stage of the Silfen are seen hunting for ice whales.
i think this is a great form of contrast between the Characters, the playful child like aliens and the aggressive thrill seeking mature age.
As you can see the silhouettes are really simular and i needed to get a mix of different body shapes and features.
I was told to look at things to do with nature and try and get a silhouette, work further into it to get a character out of that.
so instead of getting pictures off the internet, i thought i would try and pick up some of these things myself so i could use a more hands on approach to the design.
not knowing how my character will look like i made some concept art that related with the style i was looking for.
i really enjoyed this method and will differently use it in future.
my plans for the week:
Friday - Blacken all Nature silhouettes and work on their features
Monday- Have a chosen silhouette for finalisation
Wednesday- Have profiles art and gadgets
Friday- Basic block modelling of Silfen character.
Throughout the process of modelling i would like to create a concept art for each day for my showreel.
My next post will be Later on today. stay tuned.
