    : GrogroZoo : TeamChow - Alice, Entdroid, Fedezz & Clo

    Heya !

    Here is the work we did for the team Chow !
    I'll post here the essential of our wips and steps but you can check out all our team work on the blog we did :

    GrogroZoo's blog

    ******


    The brief :

    Team show 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.

    _______________


    Our brainstorming : (Fedezz wasn't typing but he was close to Entdroid to share the ideas, so he has been a part of the boiling storming brains too)

    "

    Alice

    the other was psychedelic sci-fi, kind of like a weird 70s/80s cartoon or something. Like the flash gordon movie


    Vic | entdroid

    yeah i like that


    Clo

    it sounds pretty nice to go as if it was for a cartoon, as long as a lot of team would think of it as a video game or movie stuff


    Vic | entdroid

    and 2 i was thinking it would be cool if it was insect-themed

    making the chars insects


    Clo

    ha i thought of that too, not human, i dunno if there is something about that


    Vic | entdroid

    yeah i think it could be fun not making them human


    Clo

    i was thinking to a kind of quest, with animals char


    Alice

    i think i would prefer either all human or all animal - a mix gets sort of... well it makes me think about furrys


    Vic | entdroid

    no furries no

    please!


    Clo

    it's true that it will be easier to make them look from the same world

    if they're all the same


    Vic | entdroid

    so for now we have decided: no mix


    Clo

    so, what kind of animals?


    Vic | entdroid

    well it could be insects as i said


    rodents


    Clo

    ha sounds fun


    Alice

    well uhm... have any of you girls read redwall?


    Vic | entdroid

    ahaha


    Alice


    i used to love those books

    i read them obsessively


    Clo

    haaa i was watching the anime


    Vic | entdroid

    redwall is awesome


    Alice

    yeah, i'm seeing how it could turn out well - some kind of exotic animal as the 'sage' character, maybe a reformed predator as the 'rabble rouser'


    Clo

    the technician could be a sneaky weasel

    the shadow char should be more creepy i think


    Vic | entdroid

    the protector could be a badger, or a hedgehog

    http://www.biolib.cz/IMG/GAL/29901.jpg

    it could be the sage, or maybe something weirder looking

    sugar glider apparently

    it glides

    like a fliying squirrel

    a squirrel!


    that should be the technician i think


    Clo

    what about the universe, we said cartoon, 70 80 spirit?

    i think rodents should fit, and it's quite original


    Vic | entdroid

    uhmmmmm rodents in the 80s?

    i kinda like it

    rodents with big hair


    Clo

    yeah we should make them some clothes


    Vic | entdroid

    and huge snickers

    well we can try out both lines a classical one and a more humororus one

    and see what comes up"


    Pics are coming, i'll edit this.

    So, we went for cards, like these game cards for kids.

    First attempt :

Size:  301.4 KB

    Fedezz came out with something easier to read and less busy.
    We were still experimenting for our chars but at least the design of the final was ok.

    Fedezz's Rabble Rouser sketch :
    Name:  the_rabble_rouser_001.jpg
Views: 629
Size:  51.9 KB

    And done : notice the Miami Vice t shirt
    Name:  bord_the_rabble_rouser.jpg
Views: 620
Size:  80.1 KB

    I've made a new technician, mixing Entdroid's sketches with mine :

Size:  100.1 KB
    Name:  clo_technician_4 copy.jpg
Views: 633
Size:  143.7 KB

    Hero changed too, it's a collab between Entdroid and Fedezz, she did the design using Alice's sketches, and Fedezz painted on it.

    and the dark sided hero :

    Alice found the time to do a great protector while she was moving!
