Minor Project: Proposal


The idea of the project is to make a 3D production which is inspired from a child novel, 'The peculiar' by a young author, Stefan Bachmann the novel which I'll be illustrating. 
This novel is a fantasy adventure novel, based in England. In the faery slums of Bath we get introduced to characters such as Bartholomew Kettle, Arthur Jelliby and  a clock bird sparrow, just to name a few.  


For the project I want to produce a, 2 minute turnaround of a fully rigged and animated 3D character of the clock bird and Arthur Jelliby, who is a member of parliament.


I'll be looking into clock mechanics and sparrows in-order to get a better understanding of how the clock bird would move and function.
I'll also look into how parliament members dressed and act in the 1900s so I can make reference to when dealing with Arthur Jelliby. 


The modelling and rigging of the character will be stylised and a lot of the textures will be painted on.


I'll be using illustrator, Photoshop, Maya, Audition and Aftereffect or PremierPro to complete this project.

  1. Hi Ridge. This sounds like it could be a cool project. There's plenty of possibility if you search "clockwork device" or "clockwork automaton."

    Beware - steampunk and close relations are pretty oversaturated themes.
