The concept work is done (for now)! I’ll be getting these printed and hung on my wall later this week to start a mood board. Sometimes just little things like that can help keep me on track with a project or get me in the mood to work. I might have spent a little too much time working on the layouts for these boards, but considering these will be hanging on my wall for the rest of the year, I think it was worth it.
On the final model, I’m hoping to make all the moving parts shown here actually work. I really want to incorporate the helmet-opening feature, the weapon holsters and arm blades. I’ve also got a few sketches for how all the joints will fit together that I haven’t published yet. I’m going to try to do something a little better than the standard ball-and-socket or hinge joints on most figures. Concept sketches for that stuff will probably show up from time to time.
Moving forward, I plan to get started modeling this week. I’d like to try to stay on a regular schedule with the updates. I think I’ll be setting up a calendar this week as well to keep my progress on track. We’re just getting to the heart of this thing!
