Design4 Media Project 1 Final Post

  This is the final post of the first Design4Media project, we had to do several things in this four week process concept character design, concept sketches, color palettes etc. For the final I came up with a series of posters a big one featuring all the characters. Involved in there own world, along with three mini one's each details of there own. 

Final design poster of the wastelands with the character Shiek, Zinc and Tom. These character live in a wasteland that is covered completely in ink. It represents the beginning of a idea, in a person's mind we start with nothing. When a idea is first formed, like the waste it is nothing but a pile of ink thoughts and colors taking the form of this world. When a idea is beginning to form it turns into a creature and the more it changes. While taking form the same can be said for the creature representing the idea. 




The first model sheets were traditionally done at first, but the results really weren't that good. The characters weren't given as much form here we can get a clear view. Of that form from all sides along with there own unique of each character.

A redone model sheet was finished for each individual character as well. More concept sketches of some of the characters abilities will be included in a later post. 




 A refined color palette has been done as well to represent the changes that were included with the final pieces. The color range is a over all of everything in this post. 

Finished and Draft Morph Animation

Finished rough of the morph animation the timing was originally, a bit off on the end. 
The ball didn't end in the same place that the cycle started which is a key thing. 

The finished and colored version of the morph animation, the timing near the end was fixed. 
I had to go back and scrap it but it worked out better in the end. There was extra, 
time in class today so I went back and colored it. The ball also completes the cycle now as well.
