The bad guys started out with paper sketches that were no more than 1 to 2 minute doodles. We found that on the limited budget we most likely wouldn't be able to produce something very effective in terms of makeup prosthetics So we decided to go with something that would be menacing by making you make up what they are under the mask.
Slowly but surely the ideas of the medieval theme were integrated out and the concept was abstracted more and more to a repeatable minion look. Most of the designed metal parts were made into cloth for budget and man power reasons. It's still all a work in progress that's being worked on continuously whenever the team comes together.
Here you are starting to see the more final designs at the point of when we last stopped. Version 2.0 will be worked on for sure of this design as it is reworked to perfection in both the design and functionality stages. Keep watching us over at http://knytofilm.tumblr.com/ for more updates.
