Teen Character Designs





Teen Character Design

Character Development: Height Differences


Character development: Teen

After speaking to Alan, I've smoothed a lot of the corners so she was more rounded and tried to modify the teens proportions, so it looks better, I've also adjusted the width but couldn't decide which I prefer. I've changed the hair to a dark brown, and darken the jeans a little more.

Final Environment Concepts

These environment concepts show the two rooms from their minimal camera perspectives. The viewing gallery has a control panel complete with screens, buttons and levers, including the 'big red button' for the ending.


From this layout we can deduce the scale and space of the sets in preparation for building in Maya.

Teen Development Stereotypical Teenager

Tried to make her look a little more like a stereotypical teen by making the clothes darker, adding a logo onto the hoodie and darker highlights

Defining Character & Style

The design process for this character stems from the direct physical relation between mobile phones and cartoon geometry. I am fond of the frayed hair and brightly coloured clothing mixed with the sadness of her face, though perhaps opting for the longer-haired design would make her look more like a tablet or device with the face serving as an icon.
