So we done a texture test, giving the character a ‘painted’ feel with the textures. Mixing the colours in photoshop. This was then applied to the character and a quick composite was done to see if these textures fitted in with the live action.
We realised from this image that it was TERRIBLE looking! The painted texture effect didnt work atal, so we then just applied a lambert to the character and give him block colours and then done the same comp, only with different textures.
This was the result and it looks a lot better! A hell of a lot better! So that is the reason we are now going for block colours!
