View Full Version : # 25 - Jolly - Zcubed

I'm in! Things are very busy at school, but I'll do my best to get an entry done.
I've always loved Candyland, it was my favorite board game when I was younger, so it was my first choice for a redesign. Poop's already snagged Mr. Mint, so I'll be using Jolly for this competition.
I was planning to go with a darker theme, but I think that the existing design might already be scary enough. There are few things that I fear more than a rotund lizard with gumdrops protruding from his spine. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Tiny update. Haven't had any free time lately, but I did some quickie silhouettes this evening. Just playing around with some different ideas at this point.
Trying to incorporate the gumdrops in different ways, not sure if it's working. /images/graemlins/blush.gif

Had to blow off some steam after the SAT today so I started modeling. Not much time, just roughing in some basic volumes.
I think I may have deviated too far from the concept, but I liked the proportions. We just had the demon contest and I didn't really want to do another short, pudgy demon character. Hopefully the next update will look more like the Jolly that we all know and love /images/graemlins/grin.gif.

It's nice so far, but does indeed not resemble the concept all that much. I think it'd be a lot more recognisable if you at least had the tail and the gumdrops on the spine. I can understand that you want to re-arrange them, but with the proportions deviating so much from the original, it's probably not a good idea.

Yeah, I guess that I'm not really following the rules if I continue on this course. I'll do some tweaking and try to make him look more reptillian.
Don't worry about the gumdrops, that's one element that I hadn't planned to skimp on. /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
<font color="red">EDIT</font>- Just a little bit more...
I'm beginning to wonder if I should just move this guy to Pimping and Previews. Candyland is nice, but I like where this one is going and I don't really want to change it. /images/graemlins/wink.gif
