▼ Bioshock - “Welcome to Rapture”
Character design, from the original loose idea sketch, through a more considered design process, and to a final image.
Made for a retelling of the Bremen Town Musicians as an 80’s rock folk tale. Made during the fallout from the 2008 economy crash, and set in an American, industrial, “rust belt”, middle earth. The notion was to be Born in The USA + The Wizard of Oz.
The four animals form a rough band to make their fortune on a televised talent show being held in Bremen (a magical motown Detroit where everything will somehow be better).
Gerik is the singer, I imagine him sounding like this.
Fack, I really dig this design, yo.
The lovely lady Petah Coyne is a contemporary American sculpture and photographer who is known for her large scale sculptures composed of organic and unconventional materials. Most of her sculptures contain taxidermy birds, I’m swooning over here.
"The sculptures always deal with death, dead birds, taxidermy, dead fish, and yet beauty, too, like the pearls and other things that I use in these pieces."
German engineering, astounding ingenuity

AAAAHHHH~! I’m glad! I’m in love with Jeunet’s films. And, especially Dominique Pinon and his rubber face. Jeunet’s films are wonderfully lit and appeals to myself as a person who is colorblind. Everything is so harsh or bright or so dark that it appeals to my senses. I could gush over his films for a while oh my goodness.
What is it about Dominique that you love?
Jean-Pierre Jeunet: You know, he surprises me every time. And I love his face. For me, it is beautiful. Marc Caro used to say there are two definitions of beautiful: the African statues or the Greek statues. We prefer the African statues. Dominique Pinon is a beautiful African statue. I couldn’t imagine my films without him. [x]
Truly a source of inspiration.
Some DC girls redesigns! An extension to the street wear Super heroines thing I did awhile ago. Unfortunately missed the Project Rooftop redesign contest, but these have been floating around in my head for awhile. I also get a lot of questions concerning the brushes I use for these character portraits. I use 2 brushed in my set to do them, and here they are!
I love the worlds of comics and video games, and I’ll probably be doing more like these :)
The Harley redesign is largely influenced by Kris Anka’s work!
As I’ve already told you, these are such lovely designs! Adore all of them
