Scene from 1984







This is a scene from Orwell's 1984. This is one of the images that stayed with me when I read the book.

Some EPIC scenes



With these I was after a sense of action and tension. The warrior fighting the undead army is a similar design the warrior of the hidden lands I posted earlier however I changed the design to allow for more dramatic motion in his costume.

Star Racer Concept


With this I explored the concept of a ship designed to race in vast courses through asteroid belts and planetry rings. It was to be ultra fast and agile, the design incorporates vivid colours and illuminated panels to indicate this is a vehicle for racing.

Drop Ship concept



This is a craft I imagined would detach from a larger cruiser in orbit and dive at great speed to its target.

Warrior of the Hidden Lands


This character is based on armour from Tibet and Bhutan. It is not entirely historically accurate, there are also Chinese influences. I was going for a more mythological feel. As a warrior from the Hidden Lands he is from the fabled kingdoms lost somewhere on the Tibetan plateau, akin to Shambhala.

The Guard



This is a design for a character you may meet in a fantasy game, I chose to be ambiguous about whether he is friend or foe. He is loosely based on the form of a Satyr, his armour is again loosely based on Greek armour however there are other elements that don't share Greek historical or stylistic influences.

Hecate


This is a personal project. It is a scene roughly based on the appearance of Hecate in Macbeth. It is still in progress but has reached a point where I want to upload it. It will be interesting to see how it looks when I finish it and compare it to this post.

Storyboards















Here is a collection of storyboards I have created for various projects. They are all for my own use as I was the person creating the films as well.

A New Arrival


Here I was going for something cinematic and sci-fi. I didn't start out with anything definite in mind, however it turned into a rainy, vibrant and dynamic scene. It ended up being a concept for an important cinematic moment. I used contrast in colour to suggest it was some kind of confrontation.

Apocalypse survivor concept




















The theme here is surviving an apocalypse. I initially explored various kinds (snow, nuclear,desert) and eventually settled on chemical. I liked the contrast of textures, for example between the plastic protective clothing and worn out fabric. I have also explored details of the main concept, like how the gloves are eroding and are patched up, also the chemical detector and its pouch.

character concept

 
 
The character here is a mob guy who maybe has ascended the ranks, he doesn't do the dirty work any more.

Concept Car


I just wanted to make something really cool! I think the way the black lines trace the form works well.

Femme Fatale


Keeping up with the classic/theatrical villains I have been creating recently I have tried my hand at the femme fatale.

Viking Chieftain


Yes I have been watching Vikings

Lost Temple of the Pharaoh


This image was just an idea which at first I hurredly sketched down. After working at it for a while it became much more of a concept for an establishing shot from a film or game cinematic.

Sci Fi Warrior concept


With this character I started out trying to get a skeletal look. The design evolved to become more sinuous but it still retains skeletal elements which are enhanced by the contrast in local values. The image stayed black and white because it was simply more striking that way. I thought about colouring it but it would have stayed almost black and white anyway.

The Lockup


Here I imagined a derelict bridge may serve as a secret storage place for those engaged in nefarious activities. I was going for intense grittyness.
