I decided to do some more 'broad' researching and thinking, I also spoke to my uncle (David from the first year) today whilst helping him out with a few of his ideas also. I really love discussing ideas with people, especially people I know and trust, you can really overcome stupid ideas and get to the juicy stuff very quickly. You can also tell what works just by feeding off their reactions. So this was very beneficial. We were talking about an idea of taking a character from some sort of disney cartoon for example and making it into a realistic version of that character.
For example I am looking at Maleficent from sleeping beauty:
I could transcribe this evil childs cartoon character, into something that is realistic and far more evil and twisted. Someone that would truly be evil in the eyes of an 'adult' for example, but also I could impliment a 'gothic' feel into her.
Of course, I could also take a good character and turn the design on its head to make it evil for example. But I am very fascinated with taking an evil childs cartoon character and making a realistic version of it.
Thoughts? Opinions? I hope I have made clear what I am thinking here :-]
