VIKINGS IN SPAAAAACE


Here's some sketches for Joe's midterm.

The theme was take our first vinyl toy design (in my case it was a space man) and redesign it with viking influence. It was a lot of fun, to research real vikings and try to incorporate it into an existing design.

I wanted to make some cool celtic designs with the American flag in the ax/flag (because, you know, they inlaid metal into their axes in the form of celtic designs) but it just stood apart from the overall simple streamlined design I was going for.

Someday I want to go back and develop these little guys further.

It's been a while since I posted anything and its because I was busy all semester working on this:

It doesn't seem like much but it took forever to get the glasses, plates, forks, and table cloth to play nicely. There is still some tearing going on in the table cloth that's due to the high hand whip. But all in all I learned a ton about nCloth. Pretty cool stuff.

I eventually want to make the plates and glasses shatter when they hit the ground.
