Hey everybody! This was a big week forward as far as production and planning the next steps on the project. First, I got our first character concepts from Remi, and I really like this direction. I wanted a more angular look and feel for the characters. Keep in mind that these are just concepts and sketches to zero in on our final characters' look. I'm looking for a direction that allows the character to lean dramatically while keeping a fun edge.
I circled "A" because this character is a much more serious character; the other concepts didn't convey the same energy. Some felt too comical or too nice. The character below is trying to find an outfit, a face, or a hairstyle.
Personally, I was pulled to "D" but found "E" & "F" interesting. To me, "D" feels like a character that could be a daughter to "A." The last character concept is the more fun element of this project...a character I really want to voice.
I instantly saw "C" and knew that was the direction I wanted to explore. It's fun but fits the purpose of the character quite nicely. As you can see, this is always the fun part of the project, actually seeing things, it's fun to bring these words to life. Overall I'm very close to having the whole team put together! It's really coming together! Lots more soon!
These look spectacular and I’m loving the insight to the process!

I love the characters that you’ve chosen so far, they look really cool imo. Wish you best of luck, Rogers!
POR FIIIN, esperamos tanto por esto, esta valiendo la pena. Grandiosos bocetos!
Hi everyone. This is a rather insightful look at the decision-making process. Thank you guys so much for sharing this with us. I can get a clearer understanding now of how much effort and actual study is put into this delicate stage. Looking at some of the designs for the robot, I actually feel some nostalgic vibes from when I watched SILENT RUNNING for the first time with my family in the early 2000s. I wonder whether the robots Huey, Duey, and Luey inspired some of those looks. Once again, thanks for sharing these steps with us. Have a nice weekend!

All these concepts are amazing! Looking at the robot and the one circled, I started playing with voice tones for em’ just for fun!
But it also got me wondering, if you decide to do an open voice casting call, where would you post the notice?
I’ve been trying to get my feet in every door possible on various projects, but when it comes to casting calls, I seem to always get there just after the door closed.
