A blogroll on our efforts to create an 8 min (OPEN MOVIE) animation short on the absolutely free Animux pipeline.

Pavo is our handsome, arrogant and puts his foot in the mouth kind of a peacock. 

Here is his final character design.

Final Character Design - Pavo

Final Character Design - Pavo

Points to Ponder

  1. Bean shaped body (especially the chest)
  2. Wings need to arms to move around rather than sticking to the body like our preview
  3. Show vanity -> we could use the plumage on his head into a hair do.
  4. Stature is very important. How he carries himself. (He never looks down, if he does, he does it side ways)
  5. Body has to be well kept (Shinning, clean, interesting designs on the plain body)
  6. Tail has to be huge.
  7. Silhouette needs to angle towards his head. (Higher than everybody)
  8. Display the range of emotions/ character. Do not fall into a mold and well rounded.

List of questions to have the character answer.

  • What would he have done that he has never told anyone?
  • What is worse than death for this character (him)? If he is perceived as not being desirable to anyone. (Everyone should wanting him.)
