Any ideas on how I can make this more appealing?
Are there any resources or courses that you guys would recommend on the design process specifically? Most of the stuff I've found essentially boils down to process (thumbnails, sketching, refinement, final) but so few resources actually talk about the thought process behind creating something original. I can usually dissect what makes a piece of graphic design or animation good or bad, but I just don't have the language to analyse the design of an object or an environment.
I feel like to really be able to design anything I need to understand the whole process of manufacturing as well as the historical context, but then it's impossible to know where to start because there's so much designed stuff in the world, and so little information written for the purpose of concept design
