Having to redesign the characters from scratch, I started with the silhouette studies for the characters to try and find some interesting design to use. For our story, we were advise that we should make our character design as visually pleasing as we can. Hence we thought of several ideas such as making the setting futuristic, or underwater setting.
At first, the way i did my character silhouette design was more of turning a character into silhouette. The studies were not simplified enough. The silhouette were too define for further exploration, hence i went with more undefined shapes.
In our original idea, we thought of making the main character of average built and tall, no i thought of possibly making the character fat and big.
Should we carry on with the concept of making the story setting futuristic, I thought of making the guard a robot rather then it being human. This way, we could counter the issue of making the airport mistreating its customers, such as dropping the main character after having the items shake out of him.
After thinking of several design, i thought of making the sweeper a lovable character even though it does not play a huge role in the story.
After showing the design the lecturers, I was told that the silhouettes studies were not really silhouette studies and i should just go with more blobbing rather then giving a definite shape to the silhouette.
Hence it lead to the following studies.
