This assignment to get the class members to explore new techniques in getting a lot of interesting detail in a short amount of time. Basically, image searching is your friend and you should overlay pics to get a map to paint your character with. :)
This guys was a character that we went through and mapped out everything about him. From good guy or bad guy, all the way down to what genre of game are making him for. It was an awesome assignment and I pretty do that with all my characters now.
Alrighty off to bed.
