Ok, I know I'm doing this backwards but I'm building a character and I'm having trouble figuring out his personality. Actually, I'm trying to develop a race of creatures that are familiar enough that you can have sympathy towards them but alien enough to fit in a fantasy world. I'm trying to go for a flat cel look. I'm thinking about animating the body in CG and using 2D for the face.

What kind of personality does this guy have? What do you picture his culture to be like?

Thank you for any help you might give. Also, I need to fix the ears.

Well,

To me he looks like a worker drone.

What I mean is that his race all dress the same and work in unisen like bees in a hive or something.

They are intuitive but logical also and maybe work in research fields. ..ie.. biology, medicine, or space/ nasa type of things.

I think he would be a very winny and sinicle... sort of like that monkey off "THe Wild Thornberrys" (by nickelodion)(my spelling is shot)(sorry).

Other than that i cant realy help all that much i don't thinks... sorry ^_^.

Well, my impression from that one facial expression (for what it's worth); he looks like his mom just took his ray gun away :)


Regards,

Thanks for the input,

yeah, I can see the drone influence. I can easily change the facial expressions and to some extent the features. I think I may need to come up with some other design for a main character. Maybe changing the face will make it workable... or maybe if I add hair.

Last night I fixed the ears and roughed in a body, but I'm afraid he's looking too much like a teletubbie now :)

Thanks again,
Dana

I modeled the body. It's far from perfect and I don't know how he'll deform but it's my first "complete" character I've done in LW. (It's about time I got around to doing something like this) Now I need to rig him.
