Today we received our new project that will keep us occupied from now till near Easter. It will also be our first animation that will be in 3D, so I’ll finally some form of advantage of the other students.
The task is to create a liar for an alter ego that you can think of, so like a Hero, Villain, God, Monster… Postman and do a sort of “MTV Cribz” tour of the lair.
Another task we were also introduced to the second Animation studies task as well, which is to create a character in a style of a golden age character I’ve done some research Here.
These two project interlink with one another. ‘Alter Ego’ we have to design a lair for our alter ego and ‘Origins’ is to create a character, which is really useful because you can create a character and then build the lair around their personality, goals, likes and dislikes etc…
So far I’ve come with an idea of a character. A Highwayman/woman. The character will be a young spirit, who has just adopted the lifestyle of a highwayman and wants to prove themselves the best of the best. At the moment it’s just ideas and some visualisations, but I will develop the idea, character and liar as the week progresses.
