Day 1 was spent mostly riding in a train and discussing the theme with my significant other and my friends.
We came up with the following list of things regarding the theme:
- 5, 9, 23, 666
- music: guitar has six strings, maj6th, 6/4
- six islands/locations
- sixth sense
- six minutes
- six o'clock
- sixpack (duff 'n buff)
- six-shooter (a revolver)
Whenever I brought up the six-shooter, my friends would get excited and mention russian roulette. So it was chosen.
When I got home I immediately started modeling the revolver, which took about half an hour. Not having to worry about textures and uv's saves me a lot of time so screw those.
Then a friend of mine started talking about having to save up money and lives in a russian roulette game. Saving up multiple lives made me think of cats having 9 lives. 9 is not 6 but it's close enough so screw it. I modelled the cat head after luke vibert's music video for "I love acid", except a bit of my own spin on it.
So that was day 1 (and the first 3 hours of day 2) anyway.
