New Topic: Design Workshop

Time to give people a break, so we're just going to have people post their designs they've been doing/will do for the character design workshop. You can post your entire progression of drawings, or just post the final results.

For those who haven't been able to attend and would like to catch up, this was the assignment.
Design one of the following animals:
  • Squirrel
  • Badger
  • Muskrat

With all the following parameters:
Audience: Ages 7-11, mixed boys and girls
Purpose: Should fill a "helper" role in an action/adventure game. Character must be able to dispense advice in some way, as well as perform limited actions to help the player
Design in a different style than you are confident with

We then took our designs through four filters, one at a time: Contrast, Novelty, Story, and Style. If you want to try yourself and need more explanation, come talk to me.
