>there's a deliberate approach about it, there's a common theme, a reason behind the clustering together of most of these models
Yeah, I tried to keep to a general "theme" for different areas for each of the collages. Well, as much as a theme/narrative as you can really give a bunch of random images that have nothing to do with each other.
It's been awhile, but I think for the OG one (the one in that gif), some more "purposeful" placements, were the succubus lewdly posing and the squid girl looking up at her from below, the characters in the car doing a drive by, the goblin hoarding a bunch of wares in his cave, the trio of busts on the weird flesh-pedestals being a bit of a nod to the singing heads off the Haunted Mansion ride, the stuff in the background with the tanks and stuff being a battle between the left and right side, and the cockroach holding as many weapons as I could manage to give him.
They were fun to do, and I'm glad the board liked them, but I ended up spending a lot more time on them than I really should have been and I never really got any actual work done.
