more work on some concept art...

Sunday, March 4, 2012

These are all works in progress for Steve Jung's and Luke Berliner's Entertainment Design Class at Red Engine Studios.  The world / story that I've designed revolves around Future-Orientalist themes.  A kind of Sci-fi reinterpretation of classical Orientalist paintings by Gerome, etc.  I'm also interested in how Islam would be reinterpreted on a different planet.  Would they create an analogue to the Kabaa in Mecca, for example?  Anyway, there are some homages to authors and painters that I admire.

Merry X-Mas! Happy New Year!

I went back to Chicago for a week for Christmas.  For the last several years I attended a New Year's drawing marathon downtown, but I decided not to go this year.  Maybe it's all the Japanese I studied over the years, but I like the idea of starting the year off right with a lot of good momentum--kagami-biraki or kangeiko.  This year I tried to do 100 mech designs.  Merry X-Mas!  Happy New Year!
