No bones about it. Here's an example of some miscommunication that put Ronan Relosa down a new creative path.
Ronan is enrolled in our Character Design I class. As he was working a basic rotation for a character concept he was developing, he interpreted the emphasis I was placing on structure as direction to establish the skeletal foundation of his character. The result was what you see below. Clicking on the picture will provide a better view.
Ronan did a great job at showing what could realistically be happening within the anatomy of a form based entirely upon fantasy. Like the skeletal framework he drew, the additional work he created for his assignment revealed a deeper dimension to Ronan's skills. It'll be interesting to see the unusual approaches he comes up with in his future projects.
