I can understand the demand for a strong conceptual idea of what I set out to do, but I am not a very good concept artist. It's unfortunate because I really am interested in that type of art.
So I beg, I need to start modeling this project. If I don't start soon: I'm going not be able to finish it. The modeling, texturing, and lighting can be a demanding load when I have even more projects to do for other classes. And as I said before, I want to make this a great project.
So I was wondering if I can post every week some props that I have modeled. 4-5 props every week sounds manageable. These props include torture devices, falling rubble, pillars, chains, doors, and windows. I can post a rendered image. It won't be textured, just modeled. Once everything is modeled, I can then texture it accordingly. Once things are textured I can then do the scene layout and finally the lighting and animation.
Here are a list of props I can think of I'll need:
One Lit Torch
Fallen wooden beams
Pillars x 4
That sounds like a good list, I want it to be creepy, but then not extremely cluttered.
I've been thinking about what you said, have obstacles in the characters way.. it shouldn't just be a straight shot. Which I can agree on. Tripping over things, and running into beams and rubble sounds like a nice idea. I could have cages and things also blocking his way.
The next post is strictly reference images..
