Started trying to put together our design document...

My bro wrote this as an idea for the story... let me know what you guys think:

The teacher was a kind man.

The teacher was a very kind man.

The teacher was kind to orphans.

All over the world he travelled, from East to the West, looking for lost children.

To give shelter.

To give shade.

To give hope.

But not for any ordinary lost children.

He was looking for children who were abandoned. Lost. Exiled.

Because they were gifted.

Sometimes, the story was that their parents cast them out of the village because of their gifts.

Sometimes, the story was that their parents were killed by others. Out of hatred. Jealousy. Envy.


it was the gifts
that killed the parents.

No matter the story, these children had one thing in common.

Gifts that no one understood.

No one

but him.

And so he took them in.

One by one.

Promised them that he understood.

Promised that he would help control their gift so as not bring them any more sorrow.

To not be alone any more.

To be in control.

To give them peace.









He gave them everything.

And by giving them everything, he gave them a choice.

To work for him.

To take down every organisation, corporation, syndicate, that went against his kindness.

But so, so very little did they know...

That the teacher was not a teacher.

The teacher was an avenger.

And the enemy that once long ago caused the teacher such great sorrow

the enemy that he seeks to annihilate and eradicate from existence

was the entire race of humanity.

they would be his army.

his gifted, chosen army.



To one day serve and complete his desire for revenge.

and so

they carried on, growing, developing,

cultivating their gifts,

to grant life and take life

in the blink of an eye.

so very little did they know.

except for one child, who now knows...

Design for Characters

heres the young Miss Swetnam, backing story is she is the only female in her family to gain honours in fencing, her family is extremely sexist. her great great grandfather is a legend and the first professional fencer. Her family mysteriously ages slower so no one actually knows her real age but theres rumours of her great great grandfather"Joseph Swetnam" still walking the earth alive looking for a challegde, she secretly considers herself better than him but theyve never fought plus no one believes hes still alive. The dynasty of Swetnam is infact English! one liners :- "put away that sharp tongue of yours and attack me with a blade instead", "prepare to be cut to ribbons by a girl", "spare your chat up lines for someone your own age". START VOTING FOR THE DESIGN YOU LIKE GUYS!

Designs for characters

i went a little crazy on the painting last night.... I liked the article on character personality such as duke and stuff, cool. trying to think of one liners but so hard..... for hyde i got "wanna see how i got these scars", "trust me, you wouldnt like me when ive had a drink" , "Im gonna make a few 'changes' round here". basically he got scars from fighting which never heal even when he changes back to a geek, drinking his potion enables his change/transformation if others drink it in has the opposite affect for an unknown scientific reason.

Memorable Game Characters

"“It’s time to kick ass and chew gum, and I’m all out of gum.” duke nukem - LOL


Interesting read!

I think we can apply this to our characters, they don't need huge superfluous backstories... we can place emphasis ultimately on their design, and maybe add some cheesy one liners ;)

Violinist reference

Alright! My friend agreed to being used as a reference, I think she'll fit the part what do you guys think? I think it'll be more impressive if we can base the characters faces on real people around us!

Design proposal

art by dave

Thursday, 1 October 2009


right guys ive given heather our url. she seems pleased with our brief and our effort so far, the main thing she wants to see now is a 2d knockup of what we want our levels to look like, im thinking bashing our photos together and do a little paintover and show her that, i reckon youd enjoy that dan if you want to give it a shot? we'll all chip in with criq etc and do paintovers of our own.

neway back to progress, ive created a sculpt and mesh for mr.hyde when hes normal to show scale and to show the tutors what they should be expecting. Im tackling hard surface modelling at the moment but when thats out the way ill texture the normal mr.hyde for pratice before our final models/full body characters, big muscle boy is going in the trash, as he was just a art test! I'll get him right when it comes down to making his full mesh.

even though im going to do a full character anyways i thought doing some quick busts before uni starts would be healthy so we can show the tutors we mean business with our art this year.

was research anatomy for our mr.hyde character, i just have to post this

new proposal

Been working alot on mr.hyde recently, sorry no internet in my room so cant post process, but i was thinking as we should be focusing on our main character to look perfect if we want a job maybe we should have their transformations as just busts down to the elbow/stomach, i think it will look awesome presentation wise, ill give it a shot and post soon to see what you guys think but imagine our normal character front-side and back then in the corner theres a lovely render of their transformation from the shoulders upwards....sexy. heres what im thinking:
