How to create a 3D character model for a pre-existing live action film, that matches the characteristics of the intellectual property and the visual style of the chosen film
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
My aim is to find out how to create a 3d character model for a pre-existing live action film, give this character characteristics that match the intellectual property and follow the visual style of the chosen film. For my example in this degree project, I chose Disney's adaption of John Carter of Mars.
I used my own pipeline, which is a collection of work methods from different artists, for the creation of the example 3d character model. Though with a limit of bringing the model through the first two steps, as I focus on the constraint of this thesis work.
In order to create this model, I researched the universe of John Carter, and the visual style of the film, and from that knowledge I designed a character to create a 3d model of.
The finished 3d character model of this degree project was then compared to models from the production of John Carter of Mars, both by the author and through a survey to evaluate the result.
