Adaptation B: Welsh Character update

I've added the welsh character to my character list now, I based his design off of a violin which is a welsh instrument. I think I want him to be bigger as he is too big for his armour as he is shown squeezing into his armour so in the final design he will be rounder representing a shape of a sheep aswell. He is the lover of the group and has big hair to show to the ladies.

Adaptation B: English and Irish character shapes

Here are my English and Irish character shapes so far, I was told to go back to simple shapes and to work out my characters, therefore I i decided to take the shapes from the sitar and translate that into the Irish character, I plan to design him with feather and leaves from his helmet as he is in love with nature and the cowardly knight. Whereas the English character is more of a big knight who is holding a chicken leg into battle. I took the design shapes for him from some of inspiration maps made earlier on. Although the Yeoman character was a ''servant in a royal household'' I was thinking he could be a cook that wants to go into battle and have escaped from the kingdom.

Adaptation B: Influence Maps

 This is my English character, I want him to be a viking of royalty rather big and in love with food. When designing  I am going to look at either the corgi dog or the bulldog as they are british influence. He will be known as: The Ruler. 
This one focuses on the Ireland character, a nature loving hippie who does not really want to use his sword and is scared of slaying his enemies when he is after peace and caring for the environment. I will look at the Sitar and Banjo's for my design shape of the character whilst bringing in the patterns of hippie but translating this back to the 11th century.

Adaptation A: Infographic without SFX


Here my infographic so far without the additional sound effects, overall I'm pretty happy with it there are a few scenes that I could tweak the transitions with, but for now I am going to continue with this and add the sound effects.
