Narrative Project: Starters
We met with an artist who has formally worked with Disney and he gave us great insight on how to develop characters on the first day!
As we have him for the rest of this project I will make learn as much as I can to improve my work and general mindset when making characters in the future.
We were given characters chosen randomly by cards and I got "Secret Agent & Vikings".
I already have a few Ideas tossing around (including one I've gotten attached too).
I have been given great places to start looking in terms of Viking characters and loosely 'Secret agent Vikings' by family and friends.
I will be researching:
-How to Train your Dragon
-Thor’s comic book back story
At the moment I quite like the idea of a hero that has to put something on to become this “sexy” Viking secret agent (which does mean his appearance would change every time he put this certain something on).
My mother gave me great examples of when characters have a completely different look when they “change personas”.
I will have research and a treatment following shortly after this post.
We were also given a task to draw a character with whatever was thrown our way for example mine was Geriatric Ninja, and my second was a Zombie Detective. I will be putting up pictures of this event as soon as possible.
