Odysseus’s son, Telemachus, has been waiting impatiently for his father to return. He has a teacher named Mentor (Obviously the source of our use of the word) Here are some character ideas for Mentor. His cane is the prop he uses to connect with Telemachus.
2 ideas for the suitors who tease Odysseus. Odysseus is disguised as a weak old man. He appears at the party looking to take up the challenge of stringing and shooting the bow. The suitors are cruel to him, not knowing he will shortly take his revenge.
Odysseus in disguise. When Odysseus returns home, he has been warned of suitors who have moved into his house, and hope to take over his family and fortune. With the help of a goddess he is disguised as a weak old man.
Another concept for The Odyssey. This is Calypso’s Island, where Odysseus was held prisoner. Calypso loved Odysseus, and wanted him to be happy, so the sun shines on the temple and landscape. But I wanted it to also appear to be a prison, so the giant walls secluded the island from a permanent storm raging just outside.
Yesterday I posted my Scylla and Charybdis concept for The Odyssey. Today, I have a concept I did for Poyphemus’ cave. Again I used flowing water in the idea. The cave was impossible for anyone without Polyphemus strength to enter. When Polyphemus would roll the rock away from the entrance, he would divert the water fall to flow down the second set of steps, revealing his way down.
I designed this chameleon for Dreamworks Interactive. Back when they had an interactive division. It was for a rainforest themed game that was never made. He was a nervous chameleon, kind of like Rango.
