You might be wondering: why the delay?
It's a good question.
And the answer is both simple and challenging:
I wasn't happy with the plot. The story was pulling in two different directions and I needed to pick one. Which I think I have figured out. A chat about it with a film friend really helped. Sometimes verbalizing things makes the obvious, well, obvious.
That being said, I think I can finally start working towards my first storyboards.
In the meantime, have a sneak peak at the other two main characters!
My concept work is always a mix of language/culture creation, character details, hasty notes for later (With errors. I laugh after.), and yes (if you see it) ideas for my current project's soundtrack for when I'm drawing.
Jakkun (top left, bottom right) has pretty much stayed the same, as far as visual design. I've had a clear image of them in my mind since the beginning, even if their personality has changed a bit! Farrun (top right, bottom left) is the opposite. His character has stayed consistent, but his design has changed quite a bit! We'll have to see how he ends up when I start story boarding. I'm sure his character will let me know. XD That's the way it always ends up. The story knows best!
