    Team Chow - Art Soda - [Dan Valkar,Sony,SamC]

    Note: This is a Team sketchbook/thoughts sharing/ in-fact our works related to team chow.

    ART SODA
    -Dan Valkar
    -Sony
    -SamC



    I have copied the desc. text so we don't have to get back to description pages.

    TEAM CHOW SIX CHARACTERS
    DESCRIPTION

    For this Team Chow you will be required to design six characters that make up the 'protaganist' side of the game/tv show/ect that we are pretending to create. There will be no villians/antagonists this round.

    * Can be changed according to genre. ie, mechanical = magical = steampowered, car = boat = horse, etc.
    ** You may do two version of this, if you wish.

    Characters:

    The Hero
    - Female, between 20 - 30. Has no memory of anything beyond a year before present.
    - Stubborn to a fault, but unswervingly loyal to those she cares about, convinced that she could lose her memory of them at any time she makes the most of every moment.
    - Has a tendency to say things before she thinks about them.
    - Rumoured to have a second personality that can remember everything from before, a 'dark' side, as it were, with totally different personality traits. **
    - A quick learner, but unlikely to pay attention unless something immediately catches her interest.
    - Searching for her past but ultimately easily caught up in the present and the worries of others, tending to think of other people before herself.
    - Found (to her horror) that she is more than capable of handling herself in a fight, and likely capable of killing.

    The Shadow
    - Male, between 20 - 30 (should be around Hero's age).
    - The only person that the hero has any memory of, beyond the last year (though she can only remember his face), and the only person who might know who she is. He pretends he doesn't know, or refuses to say.
    - Seemingly self-absorbed but actually self-destructive, has a tendency to take out his insecurities as malicious remarks on other people.
    - Isn't well liked, but doesn't care, or pretends he doesn't.
    - Doesn't seem to have any friends except the hero, who he would do anything for, though of course he would never say that. However, though he seems to actively despise the rest of her friends, he cares for them more than he admits.
    - Whether he is helping the hero find her memory, or actively hindering her, is unclear. She believes he is helping her. He doesn't necessarily believe that it would help her to find it.
    - Often disappears for long periods.

    The Protector
    - Male or Female, between 25 - 50, well-built
    - Found the Hero directly after she had lost her memory, and managed to piece her back together.
    - Strong and loyal, but prone to worry. Decided to take hero under wing, and began to notice the very strange energies* and events that surrounded her.
    - Completely distrusts the Shadow and the Sage and believes they are actively working against the Hero's interests, but defer's to the Hero's opinion and trust of them.
    - Strengths lie in activities done with the hands - higher concepts either are not a concern, or are too hard to think about in depth.
    - Honest and blunt, so sometimes seems unkind, but never means it.
    - Sometimes wonders if accidently stepped in way too deep into something never meant to be approached.

    The Sage
    - Male or Female, any age
    - Does not come from the same country* as hero. Came from far away to find something, and claims that the hero will lead her to it, though will not say what it is - even whether it is a physical object* or a higher plane*.
    - Often seems to be looking through the person that he/she is speaking to, and just as frequently stares off into space.
    - Seems to disappear whenever trouble starts, but has saved the hero and her companion multiple times to threats that they were completely obvlivious/unaware of.
    - Eats very little and sleeps less, and makes very little noise when he/she walks.

    The Technician*
    - Female, 18 - 28
    - Completely in tune with anything mechanical*. Takes things apart / dissects things with disturbing regularity, and while can usually put them back together again sometimes forgets to do so, to the dismay of her friends whose objects* she 'borrows'.
    - Fascinated by all methods of transport*, and has an amazingly large memory for all vehicles* and machines* but not for people or places (they are just not important!)
    - Initially hired for one-off job by the Hero and the Protector, but took an instant liking to them and convinced them of her usefullness.
    - Not very good in rough situations like fights, prefers cold logic of puzzles, as her size tends to work against her. However, pressed into a corner, she can make her technical* knowledge work to her advantage in place of physical prowess.
    - wears her heart on her sleeve and is often very cheerful, but takes some blows very hard (a friend getting hurt, etc). Sometimes flighty.


    The Rabble Rouser
    - Male, 20 - 30 (should be around Hero's age)
    - Met Hero + crew rather accidently and they helped out of a bit of trouble (which he had gotten himself into and was almost entirely his fault).
    - Developed instant infatuation with Hero + told her that he would help her find her memory. Infatuation may or may not be sincere. Hero does not return it.
    - Tends to bring trouble with him, or create it when he gets there, as he grates people's nerves.
    - Charming and seemingly hollow, but in select instances with the Shadow has shown that he's invested more in the quest than one would think - though perhaps not for the apparent reasons.
    - Has good luck with gambling to match his bad luck with people, and never is wont for money - it tends to find him as easily as he finds it.
    - Has an excellent memory for faces as well as for numbers.
    - Well groomed, but not as flamboyant as one might expect - unless it is on purpose as part of a bluff.


    --------

    --I also liked "art gunslingers", but i kinda stuck when i look back at suggestions with soda its seems fresh to me, so lets go with "Art Soda".

    --So our theme is western early post apocalyptic and as the most guns weaponry is destroyed so we have kinda mixed, but samurai style as a primary skills with guns handling as a secondary one.(OR Vice verse we **need to lock this).

    these are cool refs for hats.

    For the hero, her feet looks very big in proportion.

    here's technician

    Dan: Do you think that the hero should have robotic arm, it may look strong but also make her weak in term of the origins of human, purity i mean. what you think?

    I'm liking the theme. I think the Rabble Rouser and the Protector designs need to be developed more to show more gear and characteristics of both genres. Also, some of the heads are too small? I'm not sure what you guys have planned to do next, but assigning certain characters to certain people seems like a good idea. Where do you want me to start ?

    Rabble Rouser. Will work on the protector now. I really think we should sort whose doing what so we don't end up with duplicates of the same character.

    Hey guys nice RR-ezzz I think the facial feel/proportion are looking better on dan's design.

    Dan; you should do sage you have came up with nice idea on that.

    samC: the costume is looking like its really samurai with less western feel, may be need to push bit more towards western, what you say Dan

    Yes, we need to distribute the characters for execution(in terms of designing not hangin' them or electrifying) :p i can do technician and hero by blending dan's design elements, i will ask you more on your though abt the ch. SamC you can do protector and rabble rouser by taking your and dan's design on him.

    So lets finalize as we are short on deadline now :p


    EDIT- One more thing we need to think is our backgrounds(location), where they should be photographed
