A week after we presented our Pitch Presentation we were given some feedback. The Teachers thought the Werewolf could have been designed better and that our mood boards needed to show more pictures of actual Wolves and the anatomy of Wolves/Werewolves.
So after reading the feedback we decided to listen to the feedback (like you should) and we re-did the moodboards and we re-designed the Werewolf.
Taking the Teachers advice I did better mood boards research and I found a lot of helpful pictures of wolves that would help me and Mehar improve facial details of our Werewolf redesign.
Here are the mood boards we found (none of these images belong to us. I have references of all the pictures in a word document):
Once we done that we looked at the anatomy of a wolf and some of werewolves. We did this anatomy research because it will help us in designing the body of the Werewolf.
Here are the mood boards of the anatomy:
Rough designs of the Werewolf
After gathering all of this research I started to draw the Werewolf.
Here is the first Werewolf re-design drawing I did:
I didn’t like this drawing because I thought I made the head a bit too big and the arms and legs weren’t to scale.
I drew a second re-design of the Werewolf. Here it is:
I thought this Werewolf drawing was better than my first one. However I think the problem was the shoulders and I thought the arms and legs were much more to scale but still wasn’t good enough.
I liked everything about this picture apart from the feet and arms. I thought the toes and the feet didn’t look very natural. Also I thought the left shoulder and left arm could have been done better.
After several failed attempts we finally managed to get the Werewolf re-design done perfectly.
I really liked this design of the Werewolf the most. I think the shoulders were done nicely. I thought we did the muscles on the arms and the legs quite well (showing the calf, etc). Also like the body we gave it. What I like the most is the claws of the Werewolf. I thought we succeeded in making him look frightening. So overall I really liked the design of our Werewolf.
In the next Blog post I will be showing you the colour trials of our Werewolf creature.
