Character and World Design Project

In Character and World Design our class built a world and each group built a race in that world. The race I created is the Wugoys which is a group of monkey-like creatures that can glide around, but are unable to fly. The Wugoy live in the sky (or the ground since this world’s design is based on the holo world theory), and they do not leave since they cannot fly back there.

First iterations to determine how I wanted the Wugoy race to look (bipedal v quadrupedal, where the wings are, proportions, etc.)

After creating this history for the species I created a storyboard for them. This storyboard takes place in the past where Lindao's mother is still leading. In the storyboards the Wugoys attacked by another race who have far superior technology. Lindao's mother tells the other Wugoys to flee to safety. (Below is a small sample of the boards created telling the story)

Dream Bash Project

A game I worked on with three other people (one other artist and two programmers). The game is a super smash brother’s style fighting game, but you use blocks as the means to fight instead of punching or kicking. The world is a fantasy world created in the minds of the children (the playable characters).

 

For this project I did all the animation work for the characters. I did about two- three passes overall for each animation, and the first pass I spent the most time ironing out the sketches and learning character movement.

I also did some graphic design work for the blog and business card to pass out at the booth when presenting the project. Also created the UI for the game.
