Hello, I wanted to do something "fun" today to break the routine of 3D work to do some concept art. I found 3 random images from a random image generator and decided to come up with something that combines the main design elements, themes or feel from all of them, into a single creature or character design.
Here are the silhouettes so far (and the 3 reference images):
Should I add more reference images to get more visual information into the design? Or should I try to be more creative and try to add information which comes spontaneously through imagination? My motivation for starting this personal project was to be creative, but I am willing to make methodical iterations if it means that it will improve the design. Should I attempt to do some photo-bashing and paint-over to get a finished result faster, or continue to build this design from scratch? I am open to any comments and constructive critique along the way. Thanks.
