Concept from Silhouette

I have taken one of the silhouettes and tried fleshing it out in Photoshop but this first attempt has turned out pretty weird because the shapes were hard to turn into recognizable arms. Especially the right arm which has turned into a fleshy alien claw. I'm going to try working with a few more silhouettes to see what other designs can be created.

  1. Hi Kay - ultimately, I think you're going to have to rationalise some of the more eccentric shapes or anomalies etc. - just as you would if you were finessing your own character thumbnails - i.e. losing some details, exaggerating others. After all, you're going to have to make your Snark feel as if it could credibly exist in terms of its proportion, body-mass etc. In this first phase, I'd simply try and 'essentialise' your Snarks - but this digital painting absolutely proves the merit sometimes in letting chance and random acts play their role in innovation and inspiration; I've never seen anything quite like this before!
