Here are a few designs of the Drones. It was important to build in a character look to them. I decided that as there were going to be two drones, their function, would dictate the character. In the end most of the Drone bits got cut in favour of 'comedy' dialogue, which was a shame.
Once the final design was signed off I produced a model sheet, something I've never done before, but because I was handing it off to others to model, I thought it would be a good idea.
Here's one I worked on earlier. Slightly different role for me that usual. For this one I was more of a concept artist as the budget wouldn't stretch to a real one. I spent the first few weeks designing the main space, then I moved onto the drone designs. In the end most of the CG work got cut out, in favour of more dialogue.
Once the designs were complete, and signed off, I modeled, textures, and lit the main opening space. So at least I had a hand in the actual production.
