With previous aid from either Collage or Alchemy silhouettes, I began to explore the character. My main aim with the designs I have been doing is to trick the audience slightly, so for instance, according to the book, Erich Zann is a bent, small, lean person, with blue eyes and satyr -like face.
My designs despite following that description, I took some artistic licence by emphasising the fragility of the character, for instance, by making frailer, will surprise the audience when the old man gathers strength to play the music he does.
The main point on this characters are the ears, hands and maybe nose. Firstly, ears and hands because he deals with his insane music that himself plays, and secondly the nose, to emphasise the oldness of the character.
Here are the the face and body development of the character :
Left is to dress up the character and create the final design in a different pose. Also create some face expressions to aid me when creating them in 3D
