Aydan the Traveling Merchant

I'm taking Game Assets this semester to learn some 3D modeling in Maya, and our first assignment was to do some character and object turnarounds.

I thought up a story about a merchant family that made their living by traveling and trading along the silk road.  The main character is Aydan, a Turkish name meaning little fire.  She's the oldest in a family of five other siblings.  After her father dies, she takes up his business to support her aging mother and younger brothers and sisters.  I thought it would be sweet for her to carry a little strawberry tree with her to remind her of home.
