im starting a seasonally themed project for my "papercraft adventure". on (pho)tuesday i came up with the idea 'Serious Santa: "when some one steals Christmas, $#!* gets serious!"
the idea is to create a few mini-dioramas of Santa dynamically and comically interacting with a few other typical seasonal characters, as he hunts down the bad-guys who stole Christmas. ill definitely be pushing a metalslug feel with a wide-angle/side scrolling look. anyway here some progress on the santa sketch.
i have a few more ideas for some others. im thinking like a Droi-dolph or Robo-dolph(robo-rudolph) or Roi-dolph(buff rudolph). and I believe Joe recommended the Obama-nable snowman which i thought was clever. of course he ll have to be fighting on Santa's side.. dont wanna ruffle too many feathers! Christine suggested Mrs. Claus. and i have a couple ideas for that. and prolly a duo of robbers.
the pipeline: one im well versed at. concept, model & texture, rig & pose in scene. from there i just transfer 3d to reality via cheap software and a decent printer. then its a matter of cutting out, folding up, and glueing little pieces of paper together! all in all its a long process. but i envision a very fruitful outcome.
hopefully i can produce 2 or 3 of these scenes by christmas. if thats so, then it yields much promise to future endeavors in this artistic realm! im pretty excited about the possibilities and the many new things to learn!
