Fish!



So here's my latest progress on Pandora. It's getting increasingly frustrating for some reason. I'm worrying over the color harmony all of a sudden even though I still have some playing and glazing to do. My instructor did a little demo on it (the top right part of her clothing) after I asked him how he paints. So hopefully he can quell my concerns over color. But I just had to put it aside and sketched out some ideas for the MOD....





Ok, so these look more like some poor creature you'd see in a bad Godzilla film (are there any good Godzilla films?). But we need them to be somewhat human in structure (bipedal, posable thumb, lack of twenty slug legs, etc.) to make the animations easier and gamplay more cohesive between factions. It was nice just to play around though. I obviously looked at some undersea creatures. They all look like they're from another world (and they practically are: most of the ocean is completely unexplored). So I figured some inspiration from "unda da sea" might create something more alien-monstery. But I should try to be less obvious about where I draw inspiration.

In other news (or lack of it), I haven't heard anything from Spectrum or Art Center yet. I sent in three prints of paintings to Spectrum for the annual contest more than two weeks ago but they havent even taken out the admission fee yet. I'm wondering if they even got it. Oh well.
