    university final year project

    Hi everyone.
    I am currently doing my final year project at university. My project is on character design. What I’m doing is creating 3 future versions of humans. These are:
    Interstellar humans
    Cybernetic humans
    Gene enhanced humans

    What I am going to do is put the designs on character sheets. Then I’m going to do is pose these characters in 3 2d scenes and render them. Each scene will have its own environment related to the character. Then the idea is to animate the painted scenes in after effects. An example of what I am going to do is the guild wars 2 promotional vids but obviously not too complex.

    Things I’m looking at is when rendering the characters are colour theory, composition and the silhouette of the character.

    Cybernetic character background

    What is the character?
    Cybernetic cleric

    Where is it form?
    Planet Daedalus

    Background story?

    Strength and weaknesses?

    Strengths
    -Has powerful strength due to robotic argumentation.
    -Never needs to eat as his mechanical parts can synthesize molecules that his organic parts require.
    -He wants freedom for his people from the churches tyrannical reign.

    Weakness
    -His cybernetic parts are very old. More ceremonial then practical
    -Have required extensive implants due to his failing organic body to survive.

    Here is the further development for the gene enhanced character. I really like this design. I have also played with the proportions of this one. The taller version I think looks better. Iv increased the size of here legs to make here more catwalk model like. I have also took in her waist and increasing her hips. This I think helps her to flow better.

    I read "gene enhanced" in your description and think that should be visible in some way. Freakishly tall would be one example, but maybe you can figure out something more?

    Just giving her cool clothes won't make her "gene enhanced". If she's a government experiment, giving her some kind of barcode or serial number tattoo would be one way of branding her an "experiment". I'm sure you can think of others... Good luck!

    Please can people give me feedback

    here are my character designed which are going to be put forward to assessment. I have a graduate show a few weeks after. Im going to really polish them up before then.
    If you guys could tell me what you think it would be great.

    cybernetic character scene

    color scheme
    This color scheme has been made to reflect a cool landscape in the scene.

    I have just stuck with the round brush for this image. didn't use any textures. wanted to see how far i could get without.

    cybernetic orthographic

    Color scheme
    These colors have been selected using a gamut map. I wanted a very artificial urban looking landscape. no green in site.

    I have used textures quite a bit in this one. I wanted it to look a bit more abstract then the cybernetic scene.
