After doing a terrible job of pitching my idea to Andy and the class on Tuesday, I decided to abandon my previous ideas and come up with a new idea for animation one which Andy and the class agreed was better. The idea will star an astronaut floating in space, or something that will resemble space, who will talk to the patient (audience) whilst they’re having their MRI scan.
Concept Art for the character that I created for my new idea for Project 4.
I’m going to have the character aged around 9-10, a bit older to what the Target Audience is (6-8 year olds) so the character can relate and connect with the audience. He’s going to have a big and small body so the children can understand that Tim is kid like them.

As for the matter of what colour Tim’s outfit will be, I decided to go with bright colours after reading from a website about how children are mostly attracted to bright colours (Colour of Childhood Website). Not sure what colours to go with yet but that decision will be made soon once I start animating.
