I covered for Jay Lincoln's Character Design class today and did a bit of a creature design / brainstorming demo. Mainly I talked about digital thumbnail sketching and shape / silhouette construction. I even tied in a little bit of Gestalt principles too. I think I spent about an hour and a half putting this stuff together, and probably 20 - 30 minutes minutes of that time refining the fish a bit. I hope to work on it some more.
Isomorphic correspondence, anyone?
Plus, I think I introduced Jay's students to the Mekong river delta catfish. Hoot hoot!
What a rad planet. Thanks guys!
