Overall, I feel my crit went well, and I received useful feedback. I need to put some more thought into making sure the characters capture the feelings and themes of the poems, both in their final designs and the environments around them. I very much like the idea of my final piece being a turn around of the 3D model, with a voice-over reciting one of the poems as the camera focuses on certain details.
I now need to finalise my clothing designs, and work on each characters' face so I can start building one of them in Maya as soon as possible. I also need to work on environment designs in order to begin creating concept art.
