ALIEN:Isolation (part 1)

Here is the first post of ALIEN:Isolation work.
In 2011, I worked for Creative Assembly/SEGA for around six months on the pre-production of 
the project. It was a joy and a treat to work on the project and I want to thank Jude Bond and
Alistair Hope for their great artistic and creative direction, thanks chaps!

The source material is of course the best you can get: Ron Cobb,
Chris Foss, Moebius and Geiger (not to mention Scott, O'Bannon , Bower et al!). It was a joy to dip into their material and in a tiny way contribute to the world of ALIEN.

I will post more soon regarding the character work, which if I'm honest, my part owes 95% of
the work to Moebius and amazing John Mollo
(who an entire generation of concept artists owe a debt to how we approach sci-fi costuming).

But for now: storyboards. These were created as part of an animatic, essentially an 'animated' storyboard. I was using my triangle brush in Sketchbook Pro for theses, later exported in layers to
be animated in After Effects.

I'm super excited to see this come together. Stefano has done a fantastic job on the Hopper
and pilots, and Michael at Industria Mechanika has worked super hard (as usual!) on
bringing all the process together. Thanks guys!

Edge Magazine

ALIEN:Isolation is featured in February's Edge Magazine.
There's a couple of small shots of the costume designs I created
with heavy reference to the classic work of Moebius and John Mollo.

(Without John Mollo we'd still be designing spacefarers wearing spandex).

ALIEN: Isolation

Dev Diary for Creative Assembly's ALIEN:Isolation.
There's a couple of early character concepts (from 2011) in there (around 0.37 and 1.30). I can hopefully share the actual images soon. I had a cracking time working on this with a great team. Looking forward to the release!

Batman Blackgate Concepts

In 2014 I will be returning to the warm bossom of fulltime work. Freelance has been
a great experience and I've met and worked with some brilliant people.
As a thanks to all for your continued support during the year here are some concepts for Batman Blackgate.

This first material render of Bronze Tiger was painted in Sketchbook Pro,
with grading and photo-texture overlays applied in Photoshop. The face is probably pretty much a photo :/

 These were the original color roughs to decide on the above pose.

 Various character sketches for the handheld version, Joker gang, Penguin gang etc.

Best to all in 2014!
