I went missing there for a few weeks, but I was gone for a good reason. We're starting on a new project for our Advanced Illustration class. It's based on a flower shop in 80's New York. It's been a lot of fun trying to bring the feel of the time and culture of New York in the 80's. Here are some initial character designs for the Flower Shop Owner.
Here's the second week of ideations. Focusing more on portraying the feeling of a flower shop owner at first glance. I added flower textile patterns from the 80's as well; to add more of an indication of the time and culture.
Here's what I chose to go forward with to the final. Tiny Grandma Rosie! I need to work on this some more. Hopefully it will look more finished and defined when I am done.
Here's a really rough Maya Model I made to make sure that the lights and volumes are correct.
Here's the first pass of the Render using the maya model as an example.
Next week is the final! Almost done - but need to work super hard to make it look better!
