How many iterations of character, mechanical and technical concepts do you tend to do before you 'find' your final designs?

This report comes from the Official Star Wars Site!

Answered by: Doug Chiang

This varies. Sometimes we will get the design right away. But more often it will take weeks of refinements. Typically, a design will go through several stages. The first is the broad stroke design phase where we try a wide variety of directions to narrow the scope. Then we take the approved direction and start refinements. This step can sometimes turn into many weeks of work as the designs evolve until the ideal design is approved. Finally the last step, we turn the designs into a model or maquette where it may be refined further still.
