I wanted to do a lower poly character as a warm-up and loved the baby felpurr cards from the mobile game Rage of Bahamut so I used that character as a base/inspiration for my little cat girl model. Each Rage card has 4 different "evolutions" in terms of what the character looks like. I took pieces from all 4 baby felpurr cards as inspiration as well as adding my own elements. I imagined the character to be used in a mobile game from a 3/4s top-down view, so I exaggerated her eyes/head proportions slightly to compensate for that.
Below are the official Baby Felpurr cards:
She's the first project where I really tried to make how I pose her up as an illustration and less so just beauty shots of a character. I felt it was important to show her in various poses; this shows off how well you did on your topology. Most characters are posed in either a simple T-pose or a passive stance. I tried to get a good range of motion into her.
Her rig was done by my friend Robert, a technical animator. Check out his site at: TheSkyrish
