Ka is a character that has been in the development for a couple of years. Originally, she was a design created for a graduate school project. The project required students to make illustrations based on cocktail drinks. One of the three cocktail drinks I chose was called the “bee sting”. I enjoyed the illustration project and wanted to bring the “bee sting” character to life in a 3D model. Although the character has gone through major design changes, the overall idea of a bee character has remained the same.
Above is the original character design for “Bee Sting” created in an illustration class at Savannah College of Art and Design.
The image above is a revised concept for the “Bee Sting” character.
