Adaptation: Character Redesign

After knowing that I will focus on those characters, I decided to develop my first designs. The fact that the descriptions of the characters on the original text are not very exhaustive gives me more freedom to create the characters.

Adaptation: The Other Gods

To make good  designs it is important to have in mind the original text. Where is set and when did the action happen? How does the author describe the characters?  That's why I have tried to sum all the information I think it was relevant:

Adaptation: First Steps

H. P. Lovecraft

At this point, I start looking for stories that could interest me and then I remembered a story I read years ago, it was The Other Gods by H.P. Lovecraft.

The story is set on a world where gods have been pushed to the highest peaks by humans. Barzai the wise and his pupil Atal begin a quest in search of new knowledge about gods of earth.

After a large journey they finally get to Hatheg-Kla, but in his propose, Barzai profane the peak of god's mountain and he is punished by  the other gods, the gods of the outer hells who take care of the gods of Earth.

Once I had that story in mind, I began asking me about what would I prefer to do. Then I realize that the characters were already on my head while I was reading the passage, so I decide to draw some sketches.

Atal - first sketch

Barzai - first sketch

God of Earth (M) - first sketch
God of Earth (F) - first sketch

Gods of the Outer Hell

Adaptation: Introduction

This project allows a wide range of possibilities. It consist in adapting existing material (texts, music, artwork..) to another medium. Due to the freedom to decide what to do, you can focus on the kind of adaptation that would fit better on your professional work in the future. It is important to have clear what do you really want to do. If you don't like what you are doing, you will not get a good result.

Considering this I chose three possible starting pipelines:

-Short story to character disgn
-Short story to digital set
-Music to animation short
