I am currently in my final year at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand. I am investigating a year long project that will attempt to design a post apocalyptic world inhabited by people with location-specific mental disorders.
I am in the early stages of the project and am still playing round with all the possible directions I can take. Part of my process is recording myself draw characters with little initial purpose. I then revisit the designs to research possible story leads and varied interpretations of their outfits.
If you are interested in this process, check out the videos:
All my studies and works towards this project go on my blog:
Here are some examples of developments:
Thank you, its been difficult coming up with a semi-original twist! Yes, post-apocalyptic but perhaps also post-distopian? Perhaps society has reached a functioning stability?
To be honest at this point, the link between the environment designs and the character sketches is minimal. I guess I am going through a process of elimination with what I prefer. From here out I guess I will be looking to get rid of the standard "leather and bronze" look thats associated with the post-apocalyptic genre, no matter how much I like it!
The character's outfits at this point are loosely based on remnants that would have survived an apocalypse, but more so just experimenting with shapes.
Thanks for the help. Will check out that video when I got some time. Sure I'll have a look at your studio, link me up!
