Posted on: November 15th, 2012 by Adam No Comments

PIE 1 Art- Concept Art

Use one of your top three winning character redesigns from the previous assignment and create eight variations on that design. You may use your the winning redesign from the previous assignment as one of the eight for this assignment. Do not worry about color yet, but do use both varying value ranges and shading in your redesigns.

Votes of 18 students from previous assignment (design – number of votes):
Design 01 – 0
Design 02 – 6
Design 03 – 2
Design 04 – 1
Design 05 – 3
Design 06 – 5 (I voted for this one)
Design 07 – 0
Design 08 – 0

As you can see, design 02 was the winning redesign from the previous assignment. The first thing I did was take the outline out of Photoshop and into Illustrator to get some nice, clean, symmetric lines. I then took it back into Photoshop and colored the bajeebas out of it. I also used a few filters to try to mimic Skyward Sword’s style.

My aim was to design a slightly older looking Fi with an outfit using different parts of the Master Sword and its sheath. In addition, I also wanted her to be recognizable as Fi, so I used some of her original outfit’s elements, most noticeably its colors and the pattern on her legs (now on her arms :P).

Finally, we printed our designs out and hung them up.
