After getting my new tablet I had to test it out. I designed a new character from scratch with similarities to Choco, the character from Assignment 2. Meet Tanuke. He’s a 19-21 year old who is playful yet sly, cunning and mischievous. He has a strong fascination with Tanukies (think Super Mario Bros. 3), and wears a brown stripe top, orange worn jeans, and a little tanuki hat, complete with a little tail, and ears, which he will sometimes pull down over his face as a disguise.
Working on him with the larger tablet with the screen built into it is much better than a much smaller tablet and mouse. He’s mostly ready for Assignment 3. I got him drawn up as concept art, and modelled in 3D in around 24-28 hours, which is much quicker than Choco which took me around 48 hours, and that’s from already made concept art. I’m happy with the results.
