Request: Make a hedgehog for a Russian class. This hedgehog will be animated during the online videos so make the hedgehog animatable with separate layers for each limb.
Professor: Heather Rice
When first starting this project the plan was to have the style be of a 50’s cartoon animation. These were the different roughs I created:
Then the style changed and tried making a draft that looked like a russian doll
but this version would have been hard to animate and it looked more like a mouse than a hedgehog so i moved onto another draft.
Then I decided to try defining this last draft a bit more. I wanted to make the hedgehog look wooden so I added a wood texture. I got the inspiration to make his wooden spikes into triangles like the top of the St. Basil’s cathedral in russia.
So this is what I came up with
I added this version in a mockup with the professor and the powerpoint borders
I got the approval for this version of the hedgehog and now I’ll continue to refine this version.
