I have first imagined this key as a bird creature flying over Christmas village. But that idea quickly grew old due to lack of tension. Instead, I changed the story to a little girl and her spirit friend as they’re being chased by a local tribe in the middle of the night. The design of Rain spirit was influenced by ungulates of African region and extinct bison. The creature is modeled in 3D.
Step 3 in creature development after proper research is done. I always do small gestures, just to add movement and life to a creature. My mantra is always to start from rough to detail because in the first stage I am free to explore and set boundaries. Details are simple needs to improve the initial design.
