As a Nintendo’s fan, I chose to work on Super Mario’s style and I directed my research on Yoshi, a friendly colorful dinosaur. To be able to create my own likeable dinosaur I took information from different sources: books, web, games and movies. Here you can find some results that helped me to direct my work.
The study of how Yoshi’s pixels are organized helped me to develop the first concept.
I compared other games with dinosaurs characters to find out variants and develop my idea.
The shape of a T-Rex made me consider the ‘realistic’ view of the character.
Some Cartoons dinosaurs – exploring the cartoon world gave me more shapes and ideas to work on.
A new 3d version of cartoons dinosaurs – definitely it brings new shapes and colors to take into consideration!
Having the actual dinosaurs pictures in my hands gave me more shapes and ideas to work on and a more historical material to think about another point of view.
Dinosaurs from games, internet, historical books, movies and cartoons gave me some shapes, details and colors to work on.
