Meet the Mondrian Mat! He is a character designed for a Substance Painter contest April 27 – May 11 2017. https://www.allegorithmic.com/contest/meet-mat-2017-substance-3d-painting-contest My design is about art: Mat is designed to be a visualisation of the German Bauhaus movement and Piet Mondrian’s inspirational work.
I don't believe that character design has to be only about super bright colours and I think that as a designer of furniture and interiors I could bring something new to a character of this kind. I tried out a couple of designs before this. The project was fun and I think that as a designer I have to go over my comfort zone often to other fields to seek inspiration.
