Messing around and doing some test.
Bottom’s a drawing to pre-viz the oil based sculpt for the top. Here I’m trying to fully composite the would-be final look I want for my monkeys. I still have to work on lighting so I can blue/green screen this lil’ sucker.
I figure once I get in the groove, I’ll truly see if sculpting the face is worth it. Hopefully this weekend I can also finish the body (which is 100 times easier)
This dood I’ve been doodling, named “Yogi DūmJut”
He’s a Yogi who mastered yoga so hard that he was driven mad and had his head replaced with a giant eyeball.
I don’t think he has any super powers or anything like that, he just goes around weirding people out with his inhuman flexibility and nakedness. He worships animal headed gods that he made up and can shoot golden light from his body.
He claims to be a chaotic deity, but is just a weirdo.
I imagine that when fairies and remedies are unavailable to Link, he needs time to mend. When healing from injuries, he probably sews up tears from battles.
Jerald exposing his compulsive note taking/doodle in order to keep a record of all his memories. During his early childhood, Jerald developed an irrational fear of “amnesia”, constantly afraid that he’ll forget where he lives, his mother, an even his own name. Jerald accounted all of his faults and failures, such as his difficulty with language, to a faulty memory or inattention to detail.
And so, he vents his phobias and anxieties through keeping scrupulous and over bearing records of his life and the lives of those close to him. “Your name is Jerald Matthew De Sena” is scribbled all over his journal entries.
Jerald: I have mastered joke telling, what is next?
René: How about NOT spitting in my face?
René comforting Jerald. Anxiety and depression are conditions that are co-morbid with Jerald’s developmental disorder, so this isn’t new to her. She’s not always successful, but she does have those moments in which she can cheer him up.
(I hope it doesn’t look like I’m trivializing these disorders, however mental illness/disorder is a subject that fascinates me)
