ADZ Toys Project 1: BOSS MAN Design

To Begin my "toy line" I have created my own unique design based on an old nickname but evetually will branch out to movie, TV and film culture.

Below is the design and turnaround for my first model of this project.

New Side Project

I have decided to start a little side project, this will be purely model/ texture based with a turnaround video. I have taken my influence from Funko Pops and Dorbz to create my own toy range using the simplistic style they use. I worked on a generic design first to work out the style I will carry across for future models but this is based on my alter ego I was nicknamed at one of the previous places I worked "Boss man". I was originally just going to do a design for me but felt looking at a nickname and exploring that with superhero gimmicks would be much more fun.

I feel this project is at least possible to generate different characters and play around with different ideas and hopefully create a lot of content and wont to take up a lot of room to collect them! I hope this side project will be rewarding and allow to try some different types of texturing down the line.

Below is the influence map for my toy brand style

CGSociety & ConceptShips present Thrust: a concept spaceship design competition

I found a new competition to work on this year and it was to design a space ship! How could I possibly resist. This was a totally new project for me and wanted to give it a go as vehicle design is something I have done very little of and avoided in the past but felt this was the right project to try something new and embrace it.

I have included my final entry and below that I have put together an Art Of I made once the project was completed as felt it was the best way to show my references and design progression as it was a lot of fun to do.

I am still awaiting the results but there was a lot of strong competition so it will be hard to call who gets what place but it was fun taking part and enjoyed the project.
