Using some of the characters you've created throughout the Monster Lab process, assemble a cohesive character lineup!

You might encounter opportunities to add characters from other parts of the ideation process as you see fit, so keep your mind open as you work through this assignment. Submissions are due by June 21st for a chance to be featured in an upcoming video critique.

Hey everyone, here's my line-up. In the critique video of the last assignment, my page of character drawings, which incorporated my thematic ideas, was missed. I've decided to use those characters as they were for this assignment. I will apply Scott's feedback from this assignment and the last critique, with some of my own changes, in the next digital/shapecarving stage. By the way Scott, your livestream the other day was great. I'm glad I watched it live though, as the recording is blocked in my region due to copyright of the music content.

Hi @Scott Flanders and fellow students, here is my current line-up. I updated the characters from the development stage with the exploration for the focal points. After the last feedback video (focal points), I did some more sketches and finally I merged two weaker characters (the leader and the tinker) into a new one. I had way more fun with the farmer and reduced the samurai theme to a point where I think it is acceptable.. Even though I preferred 5 characters in the line-up in terms of odd numbers, I had to admit that the material was not good enough. I scanned them and did some digital corrections. The blocked color in the background helps me to identify the shapes a bit better with the sketches. For the upcoming shapecarving I would like to change some details along the way. Some proportions, some gesture... this is really hard for me with the pencil. I am so used to flipping canvas and doing cmd-Z, especially when it comes to making final decisions. The Pumpkin Brigade is my thrown together mercenary troop, which gets the job done for the right amount of coin. Best wishes from my desk to all, Andre

Hopefully the resolution of the image divided in two parts is better. Proko seems to reduce the quality drastically for very wide images...
