My entry for team Fantasy, some things I'm going for:
- Heavily Art Nouveau inspired
- Slightly stylized, emphasis to try and create more curves
- Mostly clean with interesting design details and minimal wear.
- Using Marmoset embeds to give updates and show off the final presentation. I will have to make sure this file doesn't get too heavy.
Some concept Ideas:
Base mesh so far:
There is some lumpiness due to dynamesh geometry, proper base mesh will be coming soon and should fix that.
A little bit of lore for those who don't mind that sort of thing, I thought it would be cool to incorporate the idea of Fantasy (Mysticism) vs Scifi (Technology) a bit into the story:
On a distant desert-like planet, there exists a race of humanoid beings that have a close mystical tie to unique, liquid-bearing stones. These opal-like stones are believed to be the elixir of the stars and consuming the liquid can alter your perception of space, enabling you to see and manipulate illusions. The desert dwelling race, who’s name roughly translates to “Opal Eaters” used the illusionary power to build and shield their civilization, however technological travelers threaten to destroy what they have built and steal the stones for themselves. Normally passive, the Opal Eaters must now fight back if they wish to survive.
Best of luck to everyone!
