WuJi : Model Sheet
One of the first few character concepts I'd made at DigiPen. I'd never played or seen anything about Final Fantasy so this was a fun challenge. I was inspired mostly off of Chinese Wu Shamans and knew I wanted the character to have two personalities, one resembled my the 'feminine' snake and the other the 'masculine' dragon.
Character construction. Made up of a lot of basic shapes with a long, extended form. I wanted to push the imposing aura of the character.
I really enjoyed the early concepts for final fantasy being rough and hand drawn. I tried to emulate that throughout the design including making it necessary to draw in a sketchy, traditional fashion whenever reproducing the character.
Progress beginning from the initial shape exploration to the refinement and color choices of the character.
