So for a while now, I have wanted to take my interest in character design to the next level and actually make a 3-dimensional model of one of my characters. Well, I decided that my break from school would be a perfect time for me to undertake this project! And I am going to keep you guys updated! How lucky are you?
I started with a design, I tried to keep it simple since it is my first time. Below is my first little sketch that I did. Basically it is a sleepy monster who wanders around in a kind of zombie-state.
After I was satisfied with the character, I put it into illustrator and made a vector illustration. I also did a little bit of coloring and shading in photoshop.
The next step is to make a character design sheet that includes front, back, side and three-quarters view. Then I gotta make an intial model and then a mold. I'll keep you guys updated.
Oh yeah! I need a name for this little monster. Leave a name in the comments section with a short explanation if you like. If I choose your name, then I will give you one of the vinyl versions of this guy that I make (they are gonna be sweet and very official) for free!
