For various reasons I have pretty much stopped doing pencil drawings over the last few years, and have almost exclusively worked straight into Photoshop using my Wacom tablet, and I've been relatively happy with this situation. However, in an effort grab some more time for the development of my graphic novel, I've started using a PENCIL to sketch up ideas and designs in a book, when previously I may have been staring slack-jawed at the television, or crying into my pillow, or eating pies, etc.
Here are some initial ideas for an alien species from my story. They're by no means 'approved' designs, just early indications of what has been lurking in my head for some time now.
Hello there - I'm an illustrator and concept designer working in Island Bay, Wellington, New Zealand.
Previously I was a senior concept designer at Weta Workshop, where over a period of more than 5 years I designed for movies such as King Kong, the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Black Sheep, Halo, Justice League, Prince Caspian and Avatar.
Now I freelance, and dream of one day publishing my graphic novel, which is presently still very much in the planning stages... progress of which is hampered somewhat by my unreasonable need to earn a living, sharing parenting duties of my two young kiddlywinks, and stopping our nearly 90 year old house from falling down around our ears...
