ADAPTATION B: Character and Environment Influence

These are some influence maps for my project, focusing on the enchanted garden from The Fountain Of Fair Fortune. I will also use these influence maps for my characters' designs, in each of their costume designs and their features.
'Amatas' influences, wildflowers and foxglove
'Asha's influences, fruits of the forest
'Athelda's influences, herbs

ADAPTATION B: Sketchbook Initial Drawings

These are some of my first drawings from my sketchbook that I did at the beginning of the Adaptation A project. In this sketchbook I first tried to visualise the characters from 'The Fountain Of Fair Fortune' according to their descriptions and personalities.

ADAPTATION B: Outcome of Project

For my Adaptation B project I am doing a character design/ set design based project on the story 'The Fountain Of Fair Fortune', with the outcome being a physical 3D printed character and a handcrafted piece of set. Because I will be designing 3-4 characters I will choose the most interesting and main character to make into a 3D printed model.
