|making the staircase|
|the egg chamber under the stairs didn't fit in properly when modelling. so i made the area into more of a cave.|
|have the basic shapes down at the moment..|
|just to see how it looks so far, without blue gradient background getting in the way|
|top view - area in the bottom left is looking a little bare|

Trying to make the hero prop a bit more statue-like, to make it seem a bit more grand, something that people would worship and look up to - and less of just an ornament. heres a thumbnail working on it.
i used the image on the left as influence for colour, and texture, and i thought the shapes in the left statue was similar to the shapes im trying to use to make up my hero prop.

An influence map showing my thought process behind making the hero prop. i've looked at various asian statues/idols e.g. buddhist statues. I've thought about turning some silhouettes i'd made for structure ideas, and turning them into a religious statue for my character. Number 6 is the design i had chosen, as it would be a bit simpler to model, and i thought it was a nice simple and hopefully memorable idol design.
Some development of a thumbnail I decided to go with. i took my creative partners' advice to arrange the eggs the way the character might treat them..so since i think my character treats them with a lot of care, yet they are being made into workers at some point. so ive layed them out the way i originally planned to, and arranged them alien style..yet being nurtured in the safety of a pool under the bridge above.
hero prop has been made larger and is tucked into a structure to the right.
I feel like i could go ahead and develop this space for my final concept piece...

I wanted to give my character's eggs a bit more of an interesting design, instead of just a pile of frogspawn/random eggs. I was initially thinking of making the eggs arranged in a similar way to the layout of the alien eggs from the films Alien and Prometheus. However when putting that idea into a thumbnail I found that it didn't work for that particular space.
