For our current Uni assignment we have to create a Next-Gen Game Character. I have chosen to do a Rock/Crystal/Armoured Gorilla. The idea being the Gorilla was once a young strong/warrior who, as he has aged, as been afflicted with a 'rock disease' that is taking over his body. Some of the rock would have grown over the armour he used to wear.
Concept Sculpt (not the actual model, just a quick sculpt to get ideas and work on proportions):
Concept with a bit of photoshop (white lines = armour ideas):
I also want come big crystal extruding out of his back.
Have to work on Orthographics before I model the base mesh (coming soon).
