Cyborg Villain Cont’d

This is the almost finished design for my cyborg villain from my personal project.  Oviously I have some work to do on the weapon.  This is what I've been working on recently...

...and this is his head :-).  Backstory: he is a former military leader who was on the edge of death in defeat at the end of the last World War, but was given a new chance at (mechanical) life and power when he more or less sold his soul.

Backstory: he is a former military leader who was at death’s door when he was defeated at the end of the last World War, but was given a new chance at (mechanical) life and power when he more or less sold his soul and was rebuilt as part man & part machine.  More to come!

Visual Library & Some Character Design

Some more hard surface work since my last update: here are a few sketches of some cars I thought were pretty awesome.

And here is a painted study of one of the cars, an Audi (wish I knew the model).

Visual Library Studies: Hard Surface (& Some Miscellaneous)

Starting this week, I’m working on some motorcycle sketching, painting, and visual library building as hard surface art and design is an area I know I need to work on.

A Photoshop study of Daniel Simon's Tron: Legacy Light Cycle
Here is my Photoshop study of Daniel Simon’s Tron: Legacy Light Cycle…I thought it came out pretty good!

A New Character & A Little Taste of Hong Kong

Some original character designs for today: This unnamed girl is the main character in a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi/fantasy story I plan to tell...I have narrowed her look down to these three iterations, the one on the left being my favorite so far, as it fits the most with her rough and tough backstory.  I do plan on developing the other two a little further to see where I can take them, however, and if they can work in the context of my story. To be continued....

In addition to those, I've been doing some architecture sketches that will probably inform my post apocalypse world while building visual library.  So here are some sketches of some buildings from Kowloon City in Old Hong Kong.  I am particularly interested in this densely populated architecture, as it doesn't seem to far off (with a few tweaks) from my vision of a dystopian future city.

Visual Library Studies: From The Ocean to the Garden…And Then to the Apocalypse!

Sorry for no post last week, it was pretty hectic and I didn’t get to do as much as I would have liked in the ol’ sketchbook.  Anyway, here’s some of what I’ve been up to lately:
