This project was split in two parts. In pairs the first goal was to design a character duo who live in a kind of symbiosis in a fantasty world. My character turned out to be a mixture between elephant and guinea pig, the second one by Anne Zwiener a luminous bug. The bug would sit in the first one’s trunk and light the way. The live in an area with high stinging grass which my character could walk through with his thick fur. But as he can’t see through the fur, the bug tells him where to go.
In the second part of the project we modelled (in Zbrush), rigged and animated (in 3DS Max) our characters. The finished result is a walkcycle with bug sitting in the big one’s trunk.
