This is my attempt at keeping this blog updated more regularly haha.
Anyways, we just finished our third vis dev project of the semester and this one is by far my fav so far.
The prompt this time was to design a driver-gunner team of
same-species anthropomorphic California-based animals and their lifted
off-road trucks for a hypothetical racing video game. That sounds like a mouthful but just think Mario Kart
Double Dash… sort of.
It was suuuper hard to decide on a final pair to render out but I
eventually settled with Chops and Chuletta- the hardcore wild boar power
couple [not sure if they’re married or bf/gf] and their ridiculous
horned/tusked battle racing truck. I dunno if I actually told anyone but they were
totally inspired by Cherno Alpha’s pilot team from Pacific Rim haha.
I had TONS of enthusiasm going into the project because I loved the
subject matter so much [animals are my jam ok] and even though it was a ton
of work I think I managed to keep that enthusiasm up the whole way
through! The biggest challenge I had was struggling with my inherent
indecisiveness because I really liked a lot of the iterations I came up
with and I had to ask for second opinions pretty much at every stage. BUT I’M
GLAD I DID with other people’s help I think I was able to pick a team
that was both appealing and fun to work on.
Here's the final character sheet and their truck:
Aaaand here's the progress work:
