Environment 3: A Landscape (Seaside Cliff)

I absolutely love how this one turned out. The perspective was a little weird at first, but when I got into color I fell for the piece.

Environment 2: Interior (Water Tunnel)

I'll probably be re-doing this one. I like how the water looks but the tunnel itself looks awful.

Environment 1: An Exterior (Futuristic City)

Yes, inspired by tron. I tried to keep it simple and sketchy. Environments aren't my strong suit, but I tried.

Vehicle Final Composition: WIP New Progress

I've played with the background a bit for lighting and I'm liking how it's turning out so far. I need to get the grip arm in there and shade it along with Keid and his boat. I still have a lot to do, but I'm really happy with it.

Vehicle Final Composition: WIP boat sketch

A bit more detail on the boat sketch and the front decor flat color. Still a way to go.

Vehicle Final Composition: WIP Flat Color and Sketch

Still have a long way to go, but it's progress. I lowered the opacity on Keid to show the sketchwork for the boat and engines. After all line and flat color is done, I'll go in with detailing, shading, and textures.

Vehicle Final Composition Sketch 2

I've begun to fill in more of the details like the decoration of the doorway and the back wall. I have some problems to work out with the grip arm. I really want the overall piece to look very antique but futuristic at the same time, kind of an elegant new age feel, so everything will be very intricate. I'm still going to play with the openings in the floor to give them a more appropriate look.

Vehicle Final Composition Sketch

Here's the sketch-up of the final composition. I wanted it to have a kind of calm, relaxed feel. The background will be a lot more decorated as well, to emphasize the fact that he comes from money.

Keid Turn Sheet

Here we have two views of Lord Keid, front 3/4 and rear 3/4. Due to the level of detailing the final piece will require, this is going to have to stay sketchy.

Keid Ideation

Just some ideation sketches for the character portion of the assignment. I think I'll change his face a bit.

Airship Color Concepts

Here's the color concept sheet for the airship. I think I like the "Elegant Aquatic" concept the best. It's on the lower right. On to the character!!!

Airship Ideation Sketches

After a ton of ideations that I wasn't pleased with, I nailed down these three for consideration. I like the top one the best, so next comes the front and side view sketches.
Color concepts coming soon.

image board for vehicle project

Some inspirations for my upcoming elegant aristocrat space pirate, i guess? maybe i'll throw elf in there too, for added ridiculousness. I'm thinking along the lines of fancy flying longboat for the vehicle so I don't have to do a whole ship.

Kid Nightcrawler: Pose Complete

Here it is, Little Nightcrawler stole the remote again. Unfair advantage, I think. I had a lot of fun with this one and it really pushed me to get better.
