It was easy coming up with the name and I explained why in my previous post, but creating our little mascot wasn't as easy.
Designing Sir Hoot!
(Or whatever his name will be...)
So unlike me, my girlfriend +Jordyn Boci can actually draw (and scuplt, sew, paint, craft leather, etc.) So I gave her a vague description like, "An old ruffled owl, in plate mail, with a book and quill. Oh! And he's seen some shit in his days of adventuring."
A day later I get this back:
|I like the one under the normal owl. He's more cute than gruff.|
As you can see she was trying to figure out the plate mail and helm; as well as the placement of his quill and whether or not he should be profiled.
Another day and I get this:
|The one on the right reminds me of Saruman if he poly-morphed into an owl.|
Getting closer here, the armour was decided, but still working on his profile.
Finally after about a week (she was busy) she shows me this!
