In the dark, but not so satanic mill that is HQ at M1 Studios, Ben, my design intern from Salford University, helps me bring some form and life to the initial ideas. We look for some BMX and racer frame models in 3Ds Max and some light sabre imagery. We take a few of days to dimension them out to make visual test models. Some scaling, pushing and pulling needs doing, but they’re really promising. He Photoshop’s them up in a dogfight inside Petal HQ. They look cool. I circulate them and yes – they’ve got to be made.
