Day 3-28: I refine the new idea. I would ditch the detective snowflake concept and use the only usable part about him that would print to create a family of cats. After reading a post about a law concerning how it's illegal to own only one guinea pig due to it becoming very lonely if sold alone, I started to realize I wanted to harp on this same point (source below). I wanted to create a family of cats and try to create a vending experience where customers would feel the same guilt for this family of cats. Something very few people think about when bringing home a puppy from a litter of it's brothers and sisters. I would take this into class the next day to refine the concept.
What I was left with after the discussion is how pricing can help lean this social experiment towards a desired effect. If it is slightly cheaper to own two, then I could push selling groups to be cheaper than selling one cat by it's self. I would later design a tree house as the project's display, and now I'm thinking about creating paper work! You gotta have paper work if you're going to sell a cat as a certified breeder.
Above, is the results of learning how to Unwrap UV's for organic models, something I wasn't very versed with. Essentially what you are doing is creating seams on the model and pulling them apart so that you can paint onto the UV's on photoshop. There is an art to doing this because if you don't create the right seams with the right unwrapping practices, texturing will only be harder to get things right.
After creating a solid minimum of 3 breeds I felt okay going forward with making a few of them.
