I did a redesign of Jet Set Radio this semester. I placed it in France and had a lot of fun exploring what the city and characters would look like.
A few of the many in class drawings I did.
For my final project I designed the evil fairy from the original sleeping beauty tale. In this version she is a marionette with influences from Victorian fashion and fungus (mushrooms, bio-luminescent fungus). She is a vain character, and her vanity is represented by the fungus growing and grotesquely exaggerating the shapes which are commonly found in Victorian dress.
Last semester I took a maquette class where we could re-design and sculpt Samus or The Creature From the Black Lagoon. I decided to make mine a couture Samus with no sass spared. Well I finished it up and here she is. As you can see when translating the 2d design into 3d some things had to change. This was a great learning experience. Hope ya like it.
For one of my finals projects this semester we were given a script and had 5 weeks to flesh out as much as we could. The story in a nutshell is a trash man is suddenly thrust into a crazy government conspiracy where "aliens" created by the govt. poison the population by air. Tyler survives, but is captured and taken to a military base where he is given hands with the power to manifest whatever he has touched. He breaks out, learns the government created the aliens and sets out to get revenge.
The main character, Tyler.
Hand design including the process of manifestation.
Gorwell is a rough and tumble drill instructor type. Hes a dick.
Olly is a 16 y.o. emo kid with a serious attitude.
The genetically engineered alien. Meant to be an image to show the public the aliens
were really invading rather than an actual menacing figure. I wanted the audience to pity
the creature after they learn its just a scapegoat.
Poison drone that covers the city in gas.
Scene and layout of Tyler emerging from underground into the LA river after the poison killed off everybody.
Tyler making a big ship crash and speeding off like a bowse.
