1 Idea to Rule Them All

We spent some time developing both our Jousting idea and our Fruit Idea this last week to see which we preferred.

I knew we wanted to create very rotund and cute looking horses for our Jousting idea so I found several examples of the sort of creature we wanted.

My favorite examples were the Thellwell horse as they were the most distinctly comedic in their appearance and their actions. I felt that these traits were important when considering what sort of animals we wanted out creatures to look like.

After looking at these designs I decided to begin trying to create a soft almost balloon like creature to act as our ‘Horse.’ My concept art for these creatures took on a very childish appeal with simplified features and bright colours to that there would be a minimum amount of difficulty in turning them into 3D models.
