A short project I’ve been working on the last 2 weeks. It’s in dutch so the story is about a boy called Sonny who gives us a presentation about the power of the sun. Made for a Rotterdam city initiative project.
After a lot of struggling with Mudbox and Vray this came out of it… It’s the new version of Mango the monkey. I’m sort of… satisfied with the result for now, until next week probably. oh well… Time to get some sleep.
Refining the silhouette of my monkey character by making quick clay sketches. Trying to find a balance between badass and funny. I think the ears do a lot in making the monkey funnier and less creepy. Also, the silhouette becomes easier to read, ears forming a landmark.
First one is for a school project for which I made some color sketch thingies before, also posted on my blog.
Second one is for a personal project which I’ve been keeping in my mind for many years now.. What you see is an old part of a town called “Spijkedam” With grachts (grachts? is that english?) canals and the typical old dutch building style. Cathedral will become more detailled eventually.
