Character Session: 24/11/2015

In our final character session, we were put into groups of three and we had to design characters and environment for this game, which I can't yet remember the name of - I was in a group with Charlie and Vlad, and we decided on which characters and environment we would each design through picking numbers, and so I had to design LX-Er, Dr Kromar' Zun and The Fallen Angel.

They each had their own description and so we had to design them based off our interpretations. For the the Fallen Angel ship (Exterior), I want to make it quite simple, with regards to the shape, but have a complicated look through the amount of things attached to it. The reason behind this is that the description said that the ship had a sleek design, but had been heavily modified. The description also mentioned but it had been damaged as a result of some of the weaponry being removed/stolen. I tried to show this by cracks and splits in the metal of the ship, and with planks covering them. I also had to design the floor plan, i.e. how the rooms are organised. I kept this quite simple and straight forward as I thought it would be best to avoid obscurity. I then designed a treatment room for one of the characters that I had to design. I'm rather quite pleased with these designs as they are all quite well detailed and work reasonably well with the descriptions that I was given.

The two characters that I had to design were LX -ER, which is a medic drone, and Dr Kromar Zun, which is an evil, Venusian doctor and diplomat that experiments on people. For LX - ER, I wanted him to look very equipped by having pockets with medical supplies in. I also added the first aid symbol to further highlight his role. Later on in the session, Justin mention that the character needed to be able to fly. At this stage, I had already finished the design, so I ended up just adding robotic wings, but they appear in the design as a jet pack. When designing Dr Kromar' Zun, I wanted to show his evil side by basing his face on the Devil. I then designed the rest of him based on his role as a Dr and that he experiments on people. I think LX - ER is a more successful design than Dr Kromar' Zun as it matches the description to higher degree, where as the Dr Kromar' Zun design misses out on some details like being Venusian.
