Designing vehicles for movies requires a different mindset for every project, each of which is very specific. As you can see in some of these samples, it ranges from futuristic to playful and over the top.
Weapons + Props
The sky is the limit. Sometimes I’m given the opportunity to work on some really innovative products; other times I have to envision alien technology. It’s exciting to work in a realm where physical limitations are easily dismissed; it’s movie magic after all.
Spaceships + Planes
When designing or conceptualizing flying objects from different worlds, or the next generation of jet planes from this planet, nothing stands in the way of creating something new and innovative.
Only if time allows am I given the time complete a full illustration. It usually happens toward the end of a show, when designs aren’t that pressing anymore. Here are some samples of images where the pieces are pasted together or manipulated. Others are fully painted in Photoshop. Photoshop is a powerful program and will do anything you ask it, if you know how to ask.
