Original rough concept Clockwork Calamity! The idea I had for this project was a traveling show made of poorly built and behaved clockwork automatons. I wanted to start conceptualizing the "truck & stage" they would be preforming on.

Music Box Dancers
Here is a REALLY early (and pretty sketchy) animatic of the dancers. My idea is to have them dancing, glitching, falling over and other nefarious activities.
This is a little bit of progress on my idea to have them dancing, glitching, falling over and other nefarious activities.
As I work on the concept of what the dancers will be doing, I have also been doing a little work on their overall appearance. This is the quick and dirty concept model I was using... Here is a slightly updated version of the model with a more detailed head and torso. The color was just for me to get a better idea of what they would look like shaded. These are not the final shaders. I still need to work on the joints, the arms, legs and fine tune the head and torso.
Progress On The Stage The one thing that will NOT change in any of this is the stage, so I have been working on it some. Due to the amount of work I think will be required, I really want to have this done by Class 1.
Just a quick flipbook showing progress on the stage. A few of the elements look like they dont make sense, however, they will make perfect sense in a few days!
