Yes yes, as you can see this is probably my first post. Iím new to posting, but not viewing, I love this place with all my heart. (enough said about being new to posting)
My question is a simple one. I know conceptart.org is a wonderful place to post your artwork and potential "concept artwork." However I havenít found many Turn arounds ether for Animation or Video Games.
I probably dont have to explain turn arounds, but its basically a schematic for the character or creature or object one is to model, animate, or heck even sculpt with precision (or atleast with a better idea of what all sides look like.)
So back to the main subject, other than drawing conceptual turn arounds for things I would like to model. Does anyone have a good idea on where to find turn arounds? (Mainly for video game stuff, Side Profile/Front/ and maybe back)
Oh, and I know, I could draw them myself, but I just wanna practice modeling on turn arounds that others have drawn with their permission of course, then again thatís a whole nother situation I guess in copyright laws if someone was to model something someone else concepted.
Anywho, thank you for taking the time to read this extremely long post about a simple question haha, and thank you if you answer.
Btw I am a student currently in a Game Art program.
p.s. Turn Around is the proper term for what I am asking for correct?
What you're describing is what I'd call orthos or character sheets/model sheets, you might have better luck searching using those terms.
Edit: although I actually have seen them referred to as turnarounds too..

In my character design class we always called them turnarounds. However I totally agree with Orthos, or character sheets. However Character sheets tend to have several different poses.
So other than the correct term for this, why donít I see this very much on here? Or am I just looking in the wrong places in the forums for Orthos and Character sheets?
There's not exactly a database of this sort of thing sitting around somewhere. Your best bet is to hook up with a concept artist and have that person draw something for you.
BTW, there is a link in my sig that may be of use you you. . .
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
