After a discussion with Alan on how to go about modelling the cuffs, we have decided to make it as a separate object and use wrap deformers when we animate it later. This will give us more room to animate that area of the hand. Additionally, with regards to the body, we have decided to make it less square so that the geometry will flow better towards the neck and the feet.

After looking at our environment, we went to look into designing our furnitures. From our maya block out, it was a little bit rigid and does not fit well with our whole concept. Hence, we came out with the following design.

After a Maya Blockout, we decided to do a simple Overpaint to get an idea of the lighting and the angles in the room. Once our shots have been finalised, we will know exactly what needs to be modelled and what could pass as matte paintings.
After our tutorial with Alan, we started to think about our environment and the props that would be found in it. This is an initail idea of what could be found on the workshop keepers desk within this scene.

After our tutorial we have decided to make him look more clumsy. In the sketches above, we have him at a resting position. We will continue to give him personality in different positions and situations to help exaggerate his clumsiness. We have taken the height back down slightly and made him circus-esque.
We have our initial workshop concept art for our toy workshop and did a Maya blockout to get our heads around what to be included in the scene.

After some finalizing of what are character is we have decided on a Toy Monkey. We are thinking that he should be leaner however, need to find a good balance of monkey and toy and not delve more in one of those areas. Also we are thinking of materials that it could be made out of for example, wood, burlap or soft felt.
