The Crow

Another birthday, another friend tranformed. And '├žause it's also Halloween and I was watching "The Crow",( the first one), I've decided to transform that friend into The Crow with a bit of a surrealistic feel to it. A bit of backstry: The Crow was a comicbook about a murdered musician, Eric Draven  comic back to life  with the help of a supernatural crow to take vengeance on the tugs who murdered his girlfriend.

The Crow was then filmed, with Brandon Lee  in the lead role as Eric Draven. It was also his last role,as he died a tragic death. In one scene the group of thugs shoot Eric, but the bullets used in this scense weren't blanks. A veru tragic end to a legend.

Also a shout out for Sunmoondragoness for helping me out with tips! Chek her blog  at: http://creationsofeve.blogspot.nl/ and her deviantart page: http://sunmoondragoness.deviantart.com/.
Happy Halloween everyone!

2001: A Space Odyssey

Diving deeper into Science fiction and Surrealims, I've found the scene below, represents the hybrid  of two. This scene is from Stanley Kubrick's : "2001: A Space Odyssey" The visuals are just mind blowing. Very Inspirational!

So I'm still busy with my exam project. After viewing my first concept animation my teacher gave mesome useful feedback. First of all I had to redesign my character and give him more.....character :P. My first robot was too "blend". But my promoter liked the idea of my character resembling a nomad in the desert, so I'm sticking with it. For my second sketch I drew a lot of inspiration from  the "Curiosity" design. Below, you'll find my first concept rendered in Photoshop and Illustrator. Itook a little old -school approach for my new concept . For now it's just some pencil drawings from my sketchbook. More will be coming soon!
