In my strange world, everyone are black & white, whereas all the elements of the world, are filled with vibrant colours!
This is to signify that in the world, we have everything we want and need, but we are still unhappy with life.
The process of making is done by Adobe Photoshop.
The first character I have is a representation of the lack of time in the world. We never have enough time for everything. Time is always insufficient.
Timo is constantly searching for time, and steals time away whenever he touches someone.
His mouth, is being replaced a padlock, to represent the saying of Speak no evil.
The second character represents Money, and how people are never happy with their wealth. Money is always never enough. Being the greedy bird she is, Monika steals your money whenever her marbled eyes turn white!
With wings, she is granted the ability to fly, like how money flies away from your wallet so easily!
Her eyes are replaced with marbles, as a representation of See no evil.
The third character represents Health. People always strive to keep a healthy lifetyle, in to order to extend their lifespan. Many go to the extremes of consuming huge quantities of vitmans and doing exercises.
Hemi steals your health (HP) whenever she uses her legs, carbon fork, to stab you.
With her stealing your HP, you’ll lose and die earlier.
The rat tail Hemi has represents that she is a sneaky little thief!
Her ears are replaced with seashells, as a representation of Hear no evil.
A major challenge I faced was having the conceptual idea in my head, but having no idea on execution. It was difficult coming up with Hemi, the 3rd character, as Health is not that a prominent issue linking to having a lack of.
What I did Enjoy
Freedom of creating characters
Giving the characters a backstory.
That’s it for the Assignment 1a!
