AnimSchool Fantasy Character WIP - Michał Jeliński
I would love to try myself and participate in this challenge. I thought, I'll go for a toad martial arts master, a slightly Kung-Fu Panda-ish character. It's mostly inspired by my old 3d sketch, sulpted for fun a few years ago as well as a vast amount of wuxia/kung fu movies characters i have seen as a kid. For a main reference I'll use quick sketch done by my girlfriend - Martyna Gawłowska.
Ok, the posing is done. I've had some hard time deciding what kind of dynamic pose i want for my character, some wushu stance or maybe in combat still frame like. Finally I've decided for something far more static, stoic and calm. I think that this pose suits the "old wise master" theme better. It's the perfect mix of chillfull casual smoking of a pipe and being full ready for upcoming compat, with his sabre unsheathed and rested on a shoulder.
