I'm still thinking about that cape. It looks to be such a detail. Only. But it does change the perception of character. With the cape the Villain looks older, it adds lots more weight to him. Without it he looks more agile and menacing, capable of fighting the hero himself. And I think that would make more sense, since I gave him four sharp legs, the veil would only get in the way and perhaps contradict the logics of design.
On the other hand he could simply take it off when fighting . But really.. the use of cape would be more convetional I believe.
Anyone's opinion on that might help here, eventhough it seems to be such a tiny detail..
But if he has only the sceptrum ( which has to be that long, when he stands in his full hight to reach it ) it might suggest he is only a soldier. Or might not... It's now hard for me to see it objectively :/
The Idea for the World.
It is a place of never ending canyons, that's way the hero (and supposedly the indigineus) has such a leg structure : they need to stretch to full legth to jump over the canyon gaps. But after alien invasion the planet is seeded with otherwordly structures, mineral-like control points, walls and main castle.
Reference for the combination of both ideas :
And here is a sketch for the environment of Monster Land under invasion of Aliens. I imahine a creamy soft landscape with edgy castle-wall "grown" like a minerals out of the canyons throughout the Monster world .
Since environment concept isn't what brief asks us to produce I believe I wont develope it to finsihed stage because of other commitments to the course and university.
