Kali redesign

Possible configurations of Kali’s costume.

The initial design roughs suggested a more complicated and random positioning of the gems which would be difficult to animate, and stands in contrast with the more patterned composition of the stones on her forehead (which are in turn intended to be a contrast against the more chaotic growths of Benny’s stones).

As a solution we suggest reducing the number of gems and placing them in consistent positions. The pattern chosen here is open to revision, but suggest a good base grouping that carries the design theme of her forehead gems. We can increase the number of gems, but in doing so the chances of position drift also rise, as well as considerations of production time.

The second aspect of the initial design that may be in question was that of her clothing (or lack thereof). Designs A and D suggest various skin-tight options, while C combines a line pattern with nudity, and B suggests nudity but excludes detail. The line patterns in A and C may also serve as effects layers, glowing or pulsing to indicate forces being generated.
