Regarding art direction//IMPORTANT
here are some visual references:
http://sushixav.blogspot.com/ (there are lots of girls, but just try and find some other designs for shape ideas. He also has a short little character design tutorial.)
LINK FOR CHARACTER DESIGN TUTORIALS:
look at buildings from barcelona, and here are some pictures from an architect named Jujol. Try to render these in a simple, UPA inspired style.
Things to remember:
Acute angles and tilted horizon line = danger and unease
Rounded shapes and a flat horizon line = calm
etc... just keep this in mind when you do your layouts!
The script is very clear about what emotion each section is, so be sure to convey that in your layout sketches, and your final layouts!
//// Freddy, can you give some feedback on this by blog, and also at our next meeting? Your understanding of putting stuff together and rendering is really good, and even from that little conversation on the bridge I thought your instructions were clear and incredibly helpful.
