Character Design Competition - Postman Arcade Game
Just copied the template from JohnnyA, hope this is ok
I still have no idea how the protagonist of my game should look like. Hope you can help me out.
You find the WIP Thread here: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/129300-First-game
The Postman Character
The postman should be a cute character. Not the fighter type, more the guy who wants to desperately fulfill his duty.
Cartoony style but smooth colors (no cartoon shader or reduced color palette)
The head has to be 1/2 - 1/4 of the whole body size (kind of a big head).
The overall proportion of the character should be close to a smurf or mario (mario brothers). Not to skinny.
His facial expression should be easy to recognize on an iphone display (Eyes a little bigger or so).
He should wear a typical postman hat.
Your artwork should be different from what I already created in the WIP thread.
Please read the suggestion of the other community members there, it could help to create the perfect postman.
He should fit (perfect ) in the environment I created here: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/129300-First-game
The postman can be a drawn concept art (but quite detailed) or even better a 3d model which should not have more 1500 triangles.
Please post the your WIP and the final result here. Please tell me what postman you see here you like the most.
The creator of the best character as judged by me will be awarded €50 (63 - 67 $) cash via PayPal.
If I use the postman model I credit you in the game.
The winner has to hand over the source files of his artwork (fbx, psd)
You can join the contest the next two weeks. If in within two weeks less then 5 models are registered I will extend the contest for another week. If the contest is closed you have another week to finish your artwork. Then the winner will be announced by me.
If you miss any information, let me know. If there are any legal issues with this offer, let me know.
Thanks for reading and a lot of fun by creating the postman
