Just a few starter thumbnails
I've started out doing a few initial sketches of weapons and animal character representation. Although they aren't environmental It is apart of my process. I've done key word map on the characteristics of my character and an accessory/inventory one too, next on the list is Environments so that I can start placing these items into their space. This process is helping me shape out my environment because when I start it I'll already have load of objects that need to go somewhere, so the space will come accustomed to the objects rather than the other way round.
However I do feel that I really need to start chiseling away at the lair rather than focus on his weapons but it is helping me in the long run. I think i need to up the pace abit too though.
