One thing that we had decided on pretty early on in our project was that we thought the characters looked best in a pastel colour scheme as this was very cute and would also appeal to children
Looking at actual space hoppers was incredibly important when it came to actually designing characters to model.
Here are my digital concepts for our character designs
The set that we designed for this animation was originally going to be a white room, but then Sinéad came up with the idea to model a paper thin set which worked like the backdrops used during professional photo-shoots, i.e. fold where there would be a solid line joining the wall and floor. This means that there will be no weird shadows where we done want them and will make the background smoother
