What I'm working on this semester.

This semester I'm taking a class called Creature Design. The jist of that class is essentially to draft a concept for a creature and refine that, when the design has been properly polished and refined then we move to the next stage which is to sculpt maquette of the little freak in clay. The maquette will serve as reference for a 3D sculpt done in zBrush which will be the final product. 

Sounds like a lot of fun right? I'm stoked!

So far we've only done thumbnails, which are essentialy really quick and dirty sketches with little to no shading just to block in the proportions and silhouette of the design. Here are some of mine. They were more conceptual than purely visual so some of them might be hard to get. 

Homework for next week will be to take two or three of these designs and do some additional thumbs of them and flesh out the design some more with color and line if time permits.
