Max the rebellious student
A downloadable asset pack
A tall slender stylised character was produced for the brief, it was inspired by games such a fortnite and was also influenced by Pixar movies such as Big hero 6. The character Max, was created as a deviant Punk student who is rebellious and short tempered. He is often associated with his weapon of choice, a baseball bat.
I’m pleased with the outcome of this character; further improvements have been made from the stage one submission. Understanding how stylised anatomy should be helped massively such as exaggerating proportions of the face and limbs to make the character cartoon like. Rendering the character in Unreal Engine 4 was challenging as learning advanced lighting techniques was needed for each scene. I wanted to express the character in each scene and portray his body language. With the help of the lighting this was achievable. For example, for one of the poses the character looks evil and this was because of how the lighting was placed which was from the bottom pointing towards his face.
There are many things I would like to improve on such knowing more sculpting techniques that can help Improve production speed. Understanding lighting in Unreal Engine 4 for rendering is another thing I would like to improve on as it Is one my weak areas.
