Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is for a project that I'm working on for one of my classes and it is kind of a big deal. The assignment is from my figure modeling class and it is to design a character from the ground up that we will eventually be doing a portrait bust of for our final project.
For now, we are going to be giving a presentation in front of class to explain our character, the world he lives in, his favorite flavor of ice cream, etc etc. due next week.
I have a couple of things that I would like some feedback on.
For one, I would like just general critiques on the design. I've changed it since the original drawings that some of you might remember, and I'm wondering if it was enough.
Second, I would like to get some advice about story/world building. I'm fairly new to creating a narrative and I'm hitting a mental block as far as this character is concerned. The problem I think is that I made him before I had a story to tell so right now I'm trying to fit him into something but I'm not having much luck. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.
