The Journey Begins Challenge (3D) Entry: John Shakespeare


John Shakespeare is entered in the “The Journey Begins Challenge” update: View Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: zakoo’s first flight


‘Zakoo’s First Flight’[CENTER][/CENTER]

Hi everyone, my entry will be based on a little alien called Zakoo, nervously embarking on his very first spaceship flight. Watched by his family and pets, he’ll be on the launch pad attempting takeoff, and in the background will be a huge alien city with spacecraft flying in the air, with planet earth in the sky for a bit of fun. character design isn’t finalised, but I’ll be aiming to bring out familiar ‘human’ elements in their personality.(thanks to soapy for helping me decide on an idea!)

look forward to workshopping this one with you all. and good luck to everyone
