What’s up, ladies and gentlemen?
Last time I asked you which of those many concept arts you guys found more interesting. People voted by posting on Facebook and messaging me on Skype and Steam chat. While that worked pretty well, next time I should create a pool right here to better aggregate the votes and make that public as well. Thanks everyone who voted!
While the votes were somewhat scattered, telling me that the concepts resulted in more than one visually interesting character (which is great), I still had to face the tricky part of choosing one. The one, the main character of my game!
Well, first, let me show you the “Top Two”:
They are very different from each other. One has a big and floating eye and a complete black body with long arms and legs, while the other has a little more color variation, two small horns and has its eye as a fixed part of the body.
But who’s the grand winner?
It was a tough battle, but after sleeping on it, I ended up choosing this guy over here:
I think I enjoyed drawing it more than the other one. I still love the other concept, but at least for now, I’ll have the #7 as the main character.
Yesterday I played with Nintendo DSi‘s Flipnotes and tested how the character would look like in a turnaround animation. Here’s the result:
It’s a very rough animation, but it helps to give me a better idea about how this – still nameless – character feels.
