more to come

Here we go!!! Let's see if I can actually finish this one....

my concept image will come soon. I've already thought of it (shew!) so I will develop the quick illustration in the coming week.

This'll be a fun one eh?

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: concept process part 1



This is my first step with my concept process. I thought of the initial idea (which I'll get into in a bit) and then I started sketching rough blocked out silhouettes of what I was seeing in my mind. This is what my final blocked idea looked like.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: concept process part 1



This is the second part of the idea process for me. I'll take that really rough block of an idea and refine it a little more.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: concept process part 3



This is the final thumbnail of the concept that I will then take to a final concept at a larger size. My main idea was to get the personality of the concept in this thumbnail.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: final concept - line art



Here's my final concept in line art mode. I started with a blue pencil and built it up into what I considered to be the completed design. Then I took black pen and went over the whole thing and gave it a cleaner look. It's still rough as I'm no concept artist. :) That's why I'll be doing this in 3D.

The idea behind this concept is that this little creature is trying is hardest to look as handsome as that little sphere in his hand. He's holding it up high as a reference to himself while he makes his best effort to sculpt himself into that sphere with his other arms. I think it'll be a fun concept to sculpt in ZBrush and should have a lot of personality once I'm done! :)

great concept man.
why didn't i think of this?

only little comment: maybe put the sphere on a little high chair that is at the right of him (in front of thee small pile of rocks) and let him hold a pencil or something and mesure the sphere like they do when drawing somebody. I think this would make it much more clear he is sculpting himself into that sphere.

just a thought


cheers

AWESOME. I'll take you one step further....tell me what you think about this:

Have another arm come out of him and hold up the pencil between his face and the sphere. That way he stays in this mode of being completely self-examining.....

But I do like the idea that he is a sculptor looking at a "model" on a stool and is sculpting himself in that way....man, which way do I go??

great stuff Nothingness

your extra arm is a good sollution, but nobody holds the object they draw of sculpt. So i think it's more natural to put it on a chair. Maybe even with a furry rug or something to make the sphere lie comfortable.

either way should work. With the sphere in the hand, you could have a little more to animate if you were planning this.

cheers

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: concept update



Ok, I've added a little bit to the concept now after getting some excellent creative advice from Nothingness. This definitely helps to tell the story I'm going for here. Off to color land!!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: color!



Ok, this is the quick color version of this "strange" idea of mine. Who knows what color the whole thing will end up being...that'll be something I can play with once I get to 3D land. Kinda unintentionally looks like hunks of chocolate right now....mmmmm chocolate.

Haha, thats very good. What I think would be good is on the animation is it starts off just a view of the clump thing hacking away at himself and then gradully moves out wards so you get the whole picture
