Name Jordan Howcroft
For my Research I googled World of warcraft as for my FMP I am creating characters for there upcoming expansion pack there for I thought it would be a good
idea to look at the different environments, armour, races art style etc… and found some good character examples I could use and expand on. I then saved them
This week I looked into medieval armour types e.g. leather, chain mail and plate armour and then how it differed for male and females of the time period. I
Found that female armour seems to be very let say skimpy whereas the males are much more covered up.
For my market research I went on survey monkey and made a survey asking people about my ideas for the characters I am going to design. I then posted the link
to the survey on my Facebook page and also tweeted it to the world.
I checked my survey and found ten people had completed it with good answers that have helped me decide on my final idea allot. I have decided I am going to
do a female and male character the male being a rogue type and the female is going to be a warrior. My rogue will be wearing leather cloths and my warrior will
most likely be in plate armour of some sort.
Today I pitched my project proposal to my teachers and I feel it went well they seemed to be happy with my idea and for me to go ahead and carry it out
I started drawing out my character outlines of the front, side and back views of my character ideas. I used a pencil to sketch them out then I went over them
with a fine liner to give a clean line.
I started to fill out my characters by adding hair and clothing to them using the research I did on world of Warcraft and medieval armour.
I finished my character concepts with some shading and hair.
I have not completed the work to the dead line so it has been extended to the 16/05/2014.
Add as required
I have relooked at my work and planned out what I need to do to finish for the next deadline this week I will be working on my paper work and blog.
