Visual Development and Concept Design
Work centered around developing setting, character, and world building.
Character Design for Fantasy/Cyberpunk Setting
This design is centered around fight, flight, and fawn trauma responses, as well as considering the climate and culture of the setting. The final design includes a poncho that gives off a cooling mist, which is also a visual reference to the spirits the character can see.
For this design, the focus was on the character's job and worldview. The character, a bartender in charge of gathering information from the bar's patrons, sees people as usually good but led by inherently bad people, represented in the two toned hair.
The design for this character was more streamlined as I had a pretty solid idea of what the character would look like, and only needed to explore clothing style and color palette. The flower on the prosthetic thigh is a gentian, representing justice and victory. The character is a gladiator, and carries a blade whose handle is built from her amputated tibia.
A rough design for how spirits would look, desaturating after death, with the smoke coming off of the body becoming thicker with heightened emotions.
Additional Character Concepts
"The Dragon's Den", a bar design featuring a dragon skull and tapestry, and a drink delivery system set into the floor.
