Ladies, Gentlemen, and the rest of you.
It has been brought to my attention that we are doing a bit of drifting in our design and story development. So... we have prepared for you a new and exciting task, a central direction that we will be following until we arrive at the desired destination.
Design the cast.
Ron's pre-giant-freaking-turtle post consists of stylized versions of each character in the film, together, more or less complete, tied together by commen elements in design.
Let us all do that. Each of us will put up, in one post, every character in the film, done in the same style and at the same level of completion. That is the format. That is the challenge. That is our direction.
I hope that, by doing this, we will arrive upon a style in which to continue our adventures in story and design, a style that we can all emulate, and a style that rocks.
With respect to backgrounds, I spent quite the pretty penny on books in chinatown- books on architechture, culture, clothing, etc. I would like these books to be used in development, so I'd like to hold off a bit on serious set development. Let's nail down our characters. Give 'em some personality. Give 'em some style.
Go to, and rock hard.
