I'm re-imagining the character of Pinocchio for a course at Cologne Game Lab at the moment.
Last time I showed you the little model I built of Pinocchio and some of my first sketches.
After the feedback session with my peers I realized I wanted to have something colorful that makes Pinocchio easily stand out in front of a natural background.
I thought about using red yarn as a scarf, as it's a color really jumping to the eye. Later on I took and developed the idea. What if, after Pinocchio has been put together, he finds a sewing box and decides that he wants to be a brave knight? Something many children will love, I think
As you can see Pinocchio uses a sewing needle as a sword and a button as a shield. I also thought about drawing him a little friend that follows him around.
