The assignment is pretty open, you can practically do whatever you want, as long as it has something to do with 3D.
I figured to expand my portfolio further, that I should skip making a creature or something in the fantasy genre, since I already had made something along that road earlier.
Gathering up allot of reference pictures, I considered making allot of things. One of them being making a realistic scene of a wounded soldier holding a picture of his wife or family. Then I skipped that idea, since I thought that the military theme were probably something a lot of other students have done.
I then considered making something steam-punk-y with a dark feel and atmosphere.
Using a lot of details in the clothes, and elements in the picture like the plague mask and clockwork-bugs and rats/ravens and such. But, when I drew some sketches, I found out that I’d rather try to model a little native American girl with few accessories and completely go for super realism on her and the simple cloth. But still, I gotta admit, I’m a bit uncertain which of these ideas would be the best to go for.
Although I have already started making the child, so i think I’ll go for that one now. Rather make the steam-punk girl some other time.
